Yeah. That guy's definitely a virgin.

NEW YORK — How do you prove you’re a virgin in the town that inspired “Sex and the City”?
The producers of an off-Broadway show are giving away free tickets to anyone who can demonstrate his or her chastity.
Which raises the question: Just how will the theater know?
Producer Ken Davenport, 34, had a hypnotist screen people standing in line on Thursday for the free tickets to the first preview of his 90-minute comedy, “My First Time,” and determine their status. The show opens July 28.

The “virgin” stunt serves the subject of the play, “which is to get people to talk about their first sexual experience, something that almost any person on the planet has in common, whether in the United States or Rome,” Davenport said.
Davenport’s 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.
What a great gimmick. We picture a horny teenager taking a date (hopefully a college chick because they totally put out and are into plays and stuff) and telling the psychic, “I should go ahead and get this free ticket thing now because I’m totally not going to be able to get it tomorrow. If you know what I’m saying. But listen, bro. You totally can’t let her see me getting the free ticket. I’ve been watching some good stuff online and I’m pretty sure that she won’t even know that she’s punching my v-card. I hope she doesn’t cry-max or whatever because of how awesome it is. Do you think you can maybe buy me some beer?” This is a great idea for a play because sex is funny and off-Broadway is, well, tolerable. What about our first time? Oh yeah. Waaay back in the day. No, I don’t think you’d know them. They’re, uh, from Canada.
