EXCLUSIVE 'Virgin Diaries' Sneak Peek: Meet 35-Year-Old Virgin Carey (VIDEO)

Did you catch that promo for TLC's 'Virgin Diaries'? The one with the virgin couple awkwardly sucking face at the altar and on the dance floor on their wedding day? Well there's more where that came from.

In their new one-hour special 'Virgin Diaries' (premieres Sun., Dec. 4, 9PM ET), TLC promises to shed light on a wide range of sexually inexperienced adults who are all still virgins for a multitude of reasons, from religion to factors beyond their control.

The show has received a lot of press -- and a lot of controversy, too. Many people believe that this special aims to mock a lifestyle that millions of people have chosen, but TLC maintains that it's celebrating virgins. "Losing one's virginity is a big life decision," TLC's west coast vice president of production, Timothy Kuryak, told ABCNews.com. "It seemed like one of those seminal life moments that's interesting to follow for TLC." He then added: "We're not trying to make light of this or treat it in a sort of trivial way. We want to document these peoples' stories and why they make this decision."

We've got an exclusive sneak peek at Carey, a 35-year-old bachelor who freely admits that he's "not a virgin entirely by choice," as he consults his friends about how to score on his upcoming date. Their advice: First impressions matter.

"So I should make an entrance?" he asks. "Maybe I should have a fog machine ... and saloon doors, I could come in with spurs. Like that?" Luckily, he was kidding, but then we cut to his date where he's telling her how "really, really, really inexperienced" he is when it comes to women. No shock here: She guesses he's a virgin instantly, then launches into the inevitable 20 questions, including, "Do you have, like, a subscription to anything?"

Take a peek and tell us: Does this ring true to you? Do you know someone like Carey who just hasn't been lucky in love?

Now that you've seen more, will you watch 'Virgin Diaries'?

At first I thought this would be encouraging, because I strongly believe that a man and a wife's first time should be with each other. However, now I've realized that this show portrays adult virgins as scary, creepy, and sad little creatures whom we should take pity on and that the point of the show is to get them to have sex! Quick! Fast! Because they're so messed up! It's too bad. Now are virgins just mutant creatures? I for one plan to stay one until my wedding night. If others think that's weird enough to put me on display, well, fine, but I'm living my life for God.

I don't agree with that choice but to each his/her own. And I pity those for who it is circumstance rather than choice. What I really don't understand is why they would want to go on TV with such a personal matter, especially those for who it is not a choice.

After watching that clip of the guy trying to bite his new bride's head off like a preying mantis in the promo, you couldn't pay me to watch this... can we call it a show? Farce. Yes, that's a much better word.

I don't know why people find the existence of adult male virgins so odd. Straight male sexual behavior follows a Pareto distribution, where 20 percent of the men get 80 percent of the sex. That means most guys have to fight for the leftovers, and in every generation a few guys can't even get to the trough. Even the guys who have a few sexual relationships early in life often wind up sexually repudiated by women after a few years, like George Sodini.

The evolutionary psychologist Roy Baumeister also argues from evidence in the human genome that over the course of human evolution, the majority of males who reached sexual maturity died without offspring, probably on the order of 60 percent. That figure must include a lot of adult virgins.

He along with all his guy friends are bald. Maybe that is why they are virgins?

At least his "date" didn't ask if he had a PREscription to anyting! ROFLMAO Someone thought he might be gay... mmmm, yepper.... he just might be. In that case (he said he "takes care of it") he may not "technically" be a virgin!
Man this could get very interesting... yeah, sure nuff!!!

WONDERFUL - How young people think that the "Rite Of Passage" is to get "hammered" and have sex, (be it in college or the back of a car when 15,...or even younger !) . This would not be so disturbing if I didn't hear that these are the "expectations" of even "Christian - raised" young people; and if we truly pay attention; these are the serious expectations of the majority of the GIRLS - and to me, it's back to the "Adam & Eve Syndrome" where the world, (The Serpent) beckons & tempts, the woman accepts & then "expects" Adam to follow - but I cry for mankind; for they do not realize that sex is "BECOMING ONE WITH ANOTHER" (in God's eyes) and the most intimate expression there is between two people, and WHY it's such a serious offense to God, when we trample under foot this incredibly sacred expression of love between God & His people, for what do we think the "Marriage Feast Of The Lamb" ( that God is preparing for HIS people) is all about, (spiritually-speaking) ???

It's NOT just sex, for it is a Spiritual Union between a man and a woman, wherein we are considered "married", just like God The Father, consummates His marriage with the woman, (the Church) but though this is explicitly expressed here and comes from the Bible, I can just imagine the puke laughter from some of those who read this, and who are being prepared for the Day of Judgment; in accordance with the Prophet Jeremiah, who declared; "they have been ordained for the Day of Judgment"....as was Sodom & Gomorah!

Do you think that those of us who are serial virgins have a chance at getting on this show?

Geez...No wonder he's never gotten any if he thinks that wearing spurs and entering through a batwing saloon door is appropriate.
