For this edition of The Weekly I’ll list all of the posts that were submitted for the roundtable and also give a brief summary. We’ve got an awesome range of perspectives, from single mothers to pickup artists to peeps who just recently lost their vcards. Link love and pagerank to all.
Hammer - Blogger Roundtable: Virginity - Hammer is a 22-year-old social artist living and working in New York City. He’s sharp as a tack, specializes in online game, and writes good stuff. Since we attended the TSBMag Mansformation Retreat, he’s my new homeboy.
Matt Savage - The Dilemmas Of Male Virgins - Matt Savage pens The Modern Savage blog. He’s a seduction artist and lost his virginity at age 27, so his perspective is perfect for this topic. In this post he talks about the conundrums of being a male virgin.
Beauty of the Year - Virgin Vendetta - “Lisa” write this blog about family, sex, friends, happiness, and rage. She lost her virginity at age 17, she’s glad she did, and thinks everyone should ditch their vcards in their teenage years.

Effy - Why Wait? An argument against saving yourself - Effy is a 27-year-old social artist who also happens to be a South Carolina Gamecocks fan. You poor bastard. Seriously, I follow ‘Cocks football because you have my old football coach, Steve Spurrier. They always find a way to fuck up big games. Go SEC, though! Effy gives a compelling argument against saving the vcard for marriage. His perspective comes from someone who lives in the Bible Belt and he sees a lot of couples getting married way too young.
