friday: virginity (episode guide)
Today’s show is provocative—guaranteed to educate, amuse, and maybe even shock. We’re talking about virginity.
First, we introduce a new movement among some women, Virginity 2.0—women who have had sex in the past but are now abstaining for long periods of time, and for a variety of reasons. Psychosexual therapist, and co-host of Loveline with Dr. Drew Pinksy, Simone Bienne joins us to talk about it.
Do you think these women are strong and courageous or just missing out? Sound off!
Plus, we didn't have to go very far for our next guest. Nini, also known as Team Ricki Nini to us at the show, is 41-year-old virgin who says she's saving herself for marriage. But the audience wants her to know what she's missing out on.
And you'll meet a sexual surrogate whose specialty is working with female virgins, helping clients get over physical intimacy issues. Dr. Robi Ludwig weighs in and shares her expert thoughts on his fascinating job.

It’s the most secretive surgery in the world. Find out what lengths women around the globe will go to, to appear to be virgins, risking their own lives. Muslim author Melody Moezzi joins us and goes head-to-head with Dr. Robert Moore, who admits to performing re-virginization procedures. You won't want to miss the debate.
Before it became a thought-provoking and provocative show, the idea for today's episode was pitched by our own TeamRickiAngela, assistant to Executive Producer Lisa Kridos. During a live streaming pitch meeting over the summer, Angela shared her story and why she thought it was important for some women to re-dedicate themselves to a life abstaining from sex.
