Huh?! You read that right! The reality is that while you may have decided to save sex for marriage, you may still be having physical encounters--but not going all the way. But being a "technical virgin" isn't just risky--did you know you could still contract an STD or get pregnant?--it can wreak havoc on your emotions and your spirit. Even innocent playing around, like back rubs or tickle fights, could be setting the stage for something more. Hayley DiMarco explains why.
Technical Virgin also answers questions you might be afraid to ask.
- Have I gone too far?
- What is too far?
- If I've messed up, will God forgive me?
- What should I do from now on?

Instead of getting to the root of the problem, Technical Virgin provides only obvious, superficial answers. Instead of advising young women to guard their hearts and pursue Christ and offering specific lessons from the Bible, DiMarco merely identifies the consequences of sexual immorality and, of course, where to draw the line.
Though she tries to relate to her teenage audience, her book comes off sounding more like a research project because it is filled with dictionary definitions, sociological and psychological terms, and endless statistics. While she does give solid evidence that non-marital sexual activity has negative results and is not condoned by Scripture, she loses her credibility through sweeping generalizations and statements whose only proof is either her own personal opinion or because thats just the way it is.
The main problem of Technical Virgin can be found in the subtitle. The question how far is too far? focuses too much on following a list of dos and donts than on changing the heart. The Bible has much to say about premarital purity, personal discipline, sexual fulfillment, and genuine love. None of those lessons are examined or shared in this book. In trying so hard to speak to younger women on a level DiMarco assumes we are locked in at, she underestimates our desire to learn more about Gods perfect plan for our lives. This book offers some starting points for discussion in regard to this topic, but it does not provide the solid foundation of godly edification we young women of faith are seeking to obtain.

Kelly1 Stars Out Of 5August 5, 2008KellyI read Technical Virgin in two days. Hayley really kept me interested and focused on my purity. I guess it wasn't the worse book I've ever read, but i didn't like it, Hayley just bashed guys and sort of scared me into wanting a relationship, because she made guys sound like pigs. all boys aren't after the same things, and just because she messed up doesn't mean she had to write a book on it. i wouldn't recommend it. This was supposed to be a Christian book, and i don't feel like Hayley was very Christian like..
Hollie Mcdowell5 Stars Out Of 5January 3, 2008Hollie McdowellI love this book. It IS written in the language of teens - very easy to read and very much to the point. It is more like reading a magazine than a book. It took me about an hour to read through this book in its entirety. My favorite part of this book is that scripture is interlaced throughout the book. And my favorite, favorite part is the last 15 pages or so titled, "Your SPIRITUAL Entourage: Because God's Got Your Back." It's just a quick list of scriptural references divided into categories such as: Confessing Your Stuff, Failure, Getting Back to God, Strength for Today, Feeling Temptation, Breaking Up, Pre-date Preparation, Friends Making Fun of You, Wanting God's Forgiveness, Forgiving the Guy, Feeling Guilty, and Fighting the Memory.Great book!! Great author!! I also recommend DiMarco's Dateable book series!!
