MTV has canceled a reality series about people losing their virginity that nobody asked for in the first place.
Fox News reports that earlier this month, the sleazy network posted a casting notice searching for people 18 or older who would “candidly allow MTV to accompany you on the journey toward ‘losing it.'”
The noticed continued, “Do you want to take things to the next level? Like, are you ready to hand over your V card? Or do you have a friend who is ready to lose it? Young adulthood is a time for exploration. New relationships, fresh experiences and sexual firsts.”
“Now MTV is looking to frankly capture that journey in a new series called My First. We’re looking for adults who are ready to go all the way. Let MTV come along on your journey… as you try to lose your virginity!”
In an attempt to make the series appear less disgusting than it actually sounds, the network wrote in the notice that it would not “film the act itself. Duh.” Well, that makes this whole thing much more tasteful.
But the casting notice sparked controversy, even prompting conservative actress Patricia Heaton to call the potential series “so incredibly depressing.”
MTV must have heard the outcry. A rep from the network told Fox, “This was a preliminary casting notice, and we’re not moving forward with a pilot.”
Not to worry: Your filth quotient will get its fill later this year with “Jersey Shore,” “Snooki & JWoww” and “Teen Mom” all set to air new episodes.
