70-Year-Old Virgin: ‘I’m Ready To Take The Plunge’

The 2005 film “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” grossed nearly $200 million worldwide based on the premise of a man who went without sex into midlife. But one real-life woman has managed to a virgin up to her 70th birthday. That could be about to change. 

“Now’s the time. I’m ready to take the plunge for the right bloke,” Pam Shaw tells the Sun.”My standards are still very high, though. I’m hoping to bag a tall, dark and handsome millionaire.”

Shaw says she doesn’t believe in sex before marriage and has been too busy with her career as a cabaret dancer to settle down. “I feel I am ready to give marriage a go and maybe go to bed with a man,” she said. “You are never too old for anything. Just look at Joan Collins.”


The paper notes that despite her voluntary lifelong abstinence, Shaw goes by the stage name “The Sexational Pam,” and once fraternized with male sex symbols like “It’s Not Unusual” singer Tom Jones and James Bond actor Roger Moore. Shaw says she lived with her mother until she passed away at the age of 97 in 1995. Ironically, Shaw says men have often made incorrect assumptions about her sex life, or lack thereof, because of her career in the entertainment industry.

“I’ve never really been intimate with a man, just a bit of kissing. I had a sexy stage name and dressed sexy but that was all for my career,” she said.

Victoria’s Secret Linked to Child Labor

The company that owns Victoria’s Secret vowed a full investigation Thursday after a report said cotton used in some of its products is grown using child labor.

“If this allegation is true, it describes behavior that is contrary to our company’s values and the code of labor and sourcing standards that we require all of our suppliers to meet,” parent company Limited Brands said in a statement. “These standards expressly prohibit child labor.”

The statement from Ohio-based Limited Brands on Thursday followed an extensive report from Bloomberg that describes the life of a 13-year-old-girl who is beaten by the farmer she works for on a cotton field in Burkina Faso. The cotton picked by the girl went to factories in other countries, “where it was fashioned into Victoria’s Secret underwear,” the report said.

The report cited the leader of Burkina Faso’s organic and fair-trade program and the head of fair-trade organization Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation as saying that Victoria’s Secret purchased all of Burkina Faso’s organic crop from last season.

A report earlier this year from the U.S. Labor Department found that child labor is used in cotton production in more than a dozen countries, including Burkina Faso. A press attache for the Burkina Faso Embassy in the United States had no immediate comment Thursday.
