At tonight’s theatre opening, producer Ken Davenport is offering free tickets to virgins to his new off-Broadway comedy, “My First Time.” That’s right, gratis for the chaste, no dough for the cherried. Davenport has hired a hypnotist to cruise the lines and evaluate whether the professed virgins are indeed untouched.

The show is based on a decade-old Web site that invites people to anonymously share their stories about losing their virginity.

The human lie detector, Sebastian Black, describes himself as a mind reader and a psychic hypnotist. "He's a master of body language and tone of voice," Davenport said.

Davenport could not say how many actual virgins were likely to be admitted to the theater for Thursday night's opening.

"There are a limited number of 'virgin tickets' available," he said. "However, there are not that many virgins in New York City."

Since the prospect of virgins in the next life seem to be a source of a whole lot of global chaos, it’s awfully nice that someone is determined to gather all the virgins in one place for those of us still in THIS life.
