October 12, 2006 | Sorry to do this to you, guys and gals, but you need to know.

Remember the 29-year-old virgin whose family determined it was time for her to lose her virginity? So she turned to Jane to find a man to deflower her before her 30th birthday?

There was some vagueness as to who in her family was putting this pressure on her.

Well, no longer.

The latest candidates are voted upon by readers, and also by Sarah's father. That's right: "Sarah's Dad's pick" reads the caption next to different candidates' pictures.

I have just one word: gross.

Actually, I lied. I have a few more. The over-40 set is often skeptical when I tell them how many letters I receive from girls upset over their parents pressuring them to lose their virginity.

I think it's safe to say that the issue is now settled.

It's happening not just privately but publicly, and it's just so wrong.

How many of these parents pride themselves for being tolerant individuals, I wonder?

Discuss this more on the blog.
