  • About the Edition

    Established in 1798, Milton Academy has a proud history: it has educated artists and CEOs, and produced a long line of distinguished scholars and dignitaries. The public face of Milton had always been one of integrity--until a sex scandal rocked the campus and made headlines in the spring of 2005. The offense? Teenagers doing no more than what others had done before them--except this time they got caught. Today"s teens face a wider array of social and sexual opportunities, and pressures, than ever before. Through its sensitive depiction of a group of normal kids with normal struggles, this book offers an important look at contemporary adolescence, written by two recent Milton graduates who know this world, and these students, like no others.--From publisher description.

While there was a certain cross section of kids chosen, it was skewed to include only students with sex lives consistent with the book title, "Restless Virgins." Not a single student profiled had a steady, monogamous relationship/5(49). Now, Lifetime has fictionalized the book in a TV movie — though the “Restless Virgins” title remains.

Big surprise. Turns out that hardly any of the students are virgins or restless. “Restless Virgins” is an account of that school year, as seen through the eyes of several students.

"Restless Virgins" is a story that hooks bigger issues than Messrs. Lapeyre and Cochran were aware of, yet their film has a refreshing honesty about just how firm the class barriers are in a so-called "classless society" like ours, and how F.

In another era, "Restless Virgins: Love, Sex, and Survival at a New England Prep School" would be a kiss-and-tell book.

But that era has gone the way of lava lamps and Farrah Fawcett posters. In fact, there's little meaningful kissing in the book, but plenty of oral sex, which, in the words of one of the authors, "is treated like handshakes.". The film was "Restless Virgins," a made-for-TV movie premiered on the Lifetime channel a few weeks ago (March 9) which I'd been interested in watching because it promised some good clean dirty fun about a group of upper-class students at the exclusive Sutton prep school (based on the real Milton Academy in Massachusetts, located eight miles south of Boston) who decide that as their annual.
