About this submission

Josefina, a sexually curious 22-year-old virgin, attempts to masturbate in the shower, but slips and cuts her wrist on a rusty shower ring in a missed effort to break her fall. Carmen, her wonderfully conservative Mexican mother, discovers her unconscious on the bathroom floor and presumes she attempted suicide.

Note: ‘Virgencita’ is a common nickname given to young Latinx daughters by their mothers and grandmothers to subconsciously ensure they retain their virginity until they magically get pregnant like the Virgin Mary (okay, it’s definitely a conscious effort by the entire community).
