Does everything change when you lose your virginity? The problems in life with "it" are certainly nothing compared to life without it. Ben, who has just lost his, is a bit strange. Perhaps growing up with a promiscuous mom and a sexually bold sister is, like, exerting a little influence. When he and Samantha find each other, things move super fast. It might be Ben holding on too tightly and being preoccupied with adulthood. Maybe Sam is too. After all, they're only, like, 16. Could be this lame town in rural California that they live in, where the circles are small, the parties repetitive and passions a bit mixed-up.
