“When New York theatre producer Ken Davenport decided to give virgins free tickets to the debut of his play My First Time, at New World Stages in New York, the promotion seemed logical.
The play featured monologues adapted from real-life stories posted on the website MyFirstTime.com, which chronicles people’s first sexual experiences. But Davenport needed a way to prove whether the audience members were virgins.
He hired “human lie detector” Sebastian Black, a certified hypnotherapist, to stand at the door and quiz attendees claiming to be virgins.
The activity has has great PR and it has been considered a huge success.
