Queens Window Washer/Karaoke Aficionado Writes Book on Losing V-Card
Queens window washer Shawn Wickens, 34, interviewed more than 1,000 Americans in three years to write his book, How to Lose Your Virginity. It's not actually a how-to guide but a collection of tales from the trenches, including the good, the bad, and the downright ugly.
In any case, Wickens is no ordinary dude. His website identifies him as a "Thinker - Performer - Karaoke Aficionado," and the Daily News identifies him as a window washer/comedian who just wrote a book that's worth at least the amount of time some men spend thinking about sex in a day (whatever that may be).
The book's Twitter page (@VirginityBook), where Wickens Tweets excerpts that make you feel like an awkward teenager, is an added bonus. Here are a few samples.
"She lived down the street from me... two years later my mom started dating her dad. Now she's my stepsister." - page 106 #vcard #virginity
"We were so nervous, we took the condom out to the middle of the woods and buried it." - page 28
"The next morning we had sex and she said the most flattering thing... 'are you sure you've never done that before?'" - page 73 #vcard
