Offered: Signed hard copy of Virgin: The Untouched History, by Hanne Blank. The author will personalize a signature to the winner.
A well-researched history of virginity, it veers from the medical (who knew there are five different types of hymens?) to the pop-cultural (discussions of “Beverly Hills 90210,” the movie “Little Darlings” and so on) to the scholarly (dissections of Christian theology, 19th-century British social policy and the like). One minute you’re plodding through an account of the Counter-Reformation, and the next reading about how Buffy the Vampire Slayer lost her virginity to a vampire living under a Gypsy curse. -- Alex Kuczynski, nytimes.com
