Taming Of The Screwed

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If Steve Carell feels he screwed himself by giving up his cherry in The 40-year-old Virgin, he’s not alone – and now there’s a forum for him to talk about it.

DONT-GET-SCREWED.NET is an abstinence discussion website recently launched by Los Angeles mother of three Yvette Thomas, who hopes people will post lots of anonymous inspirational stories about waiting until marriage to have sex.

Though the site’s name may sound racy, Thomas insists she looked up “screwed” in Webster’s Dictionary and is using it to mean “to get swindled or bamboozled.”

As she puts it, “Don’t get screwed into believing there aren’t any people waiting [until marriage to have sex]. There are a lot of them.”

But it looks like Thomas is the only one getting screwed – any way you put it. Since the site launched Sept. 1, she says she’s gotten only one posting.

Thomas admits she’s “kind of surprised” but says she’s going to call on people who are fans of her chaste clothing line, Wait Wear – featuring street signs with slogans like No Overnight Parking and Virginity Lane, Exit When Married – to add posts soon.
