Hilary Duff: Proud Non-Virgin

Lots of celebrities are taking up causes these days. Apparently, Hilary Duff’s cause is letting the world know that she is a woman in every way.

The 21-year-old former Lizzy McGuire actress graces the cover of the January 2009 Maxim. The insightful interview that accompanies the sexy photo-spread has Duff adamantly declaring her lack of chastity.

A July 2006 cover story in Elle seemingly left people with the impression that Duff had said that her virtue was unsullied. But now, Duff says, they got it all wrong.

“You know what? I was quoted saying I was a virgin, but I absolutely did not say that,” Duff huffs in the new Maxim. “That’s nobody’s business but my own. Somehow it turned into a bad thing!”

The Elle story quoted Duff—who at the time was dating Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden—as saying, “It’s hard having a boyfriend who’s older because people just assume. But [virginity] is definitely something I like about myself. It doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about sex, because everybody I know has had it and you want to fit in. But when they talk about it, it doesn’t sound special, like you would imagine it to be.”

Hmm; that certainly sounds like an admission of virginity.

Alas, the media distortions don’t end there for Duff, who’s currently involved with New York Islanders hockey player Mike Comrie, 28.

Admittedly, she’s a full-grown, sexual young woman, but erroneous reports have painted our heroine as a bigger wildcat than she actually is.

“I’ve been accused by the press of giving lap dances at clubs,” Duff marvels. “I mean, little ol’ me? It’s shocking. People love to believe it—it’s way more exciting to talk about than the truth! And they’re so descriptive about these lap dances. I don’t even know how to do a lap dance!”

Whoa, hold on; Hilary Duff doesn’t know how to give a lap dance? She really is behind the Hollywood curve.

The girl better get herself to the nearest strip club—stat!  Just like appearing in Maxim, lap dance mastery is one more step toward bolstering career relevance.
