RTÉ Two, Thursday 7 Novenber 2013, 9.55pm

Catch Darren Kennedy as he travels around Ireland chatting to people about their experiences. From a 30 something virgin to sex surrogates to Mary O'Rourke he covers the questions you have always wanted to ask.

What does it mean being a 'Virgin' today in Ireland?

Is it just a big fuss about nothing, something to get rid of or a life changing event?

Darren goes on a fact finding journey and discovers it is many things to different people.

What does a modern day Virgin even look like?

Darren tracks down a 30 something year old Virgin, Scott, who tells us how hard the reality is!

How loose are we these days?

Darren visits a music festival to unearth what's actually going on with young people. Over 25% of people have sex by the age of 16 years nowadays, but that wasn't the case 40 years ago.

We hear from Mary O'Rourke about how they' lost it' in her time!

What is a good age to lose it? Jennifer Maguire laments that she lost it too young...

And the debate as to what exactly 'Virginity' is - a state or a technicality - we hear from Ireland's only Sexologist.

Darren reveals the extreme lengths some women will go to just to become a Virgin again - through delicate surgery (known as hymenoplasty).

What do men want?

Darren keeps it country and gets a special invite to the "Joe Dolan International Bachelor Festival" in Mullingar. And if you're gay are there 'two first times'?

Rori O'Neill (AKA Miss Panti) tells us what happened to him...

And finally after much detective work Darren glimpses into the life of a Sex surrogate - who says she has a calling to help people who've been stuck with their virginity for too long.
