Queer advocates note the entire notion of virginity is heteronormative and inapplicable to many non-heterosexual experiences. Yet however many may agree the idea is a problem, few have offered workable alternatives. Her idea began with Dr Seuss. In framing sexuality as a journey, Hodges realised she needed a departure point. But the traditional starting point of virginity struck Hodges as obsolete, especially amid her project about sexual expression and liberation, female empowerment against patriarchal expectations and the expanding array of gender norms. Expecting it to be nothing more than an evocative phrase, she says she was surprised when readers began to ask her to expand upon the idea. With that, Hodges used her following as a sex-positivity influencer to launch a campaign suggesting sexual debut as an alternative to virginity. The next phase of the campaign includes releasing a crowdsourced jingle to advertise the idea as well as a series of video interviews in which people react to the notion of sexual debut. The social-media response to her campaign to date has proved to Hodges that she can lead a different conversation about early sexual experiences.

Budding up in a Christian home, I was raised to view my virginity as almost as important as my salvation. It was my most beloved possession, to be guarded at altogether costs — and the loss of it before marital bliss was maybe the most shameful thing that could possibly have happened to me. I took those warnings to heart. It's difficult to understand if you didn't grow up in the church, although the focus on purity before marriage ceremony is so pervasive in many Christian circles that I didn't even ask it. Of course I would delay until marriage. How could I assume of doing anything else? It would be hard, but if I didn't, I'd regret it for the balance of my life or so I was told.

She and Mindy Kaling, another former something virgin, are my comedienne inspirations, proof that perhaps those who run a little after romantically can still end up active perfectly happy, successful lives, and all the rage the entertainment industry no less!
