I really hate the way Ward portrays females, especially female virgins. The whole "what's that? I've never seen one of those" routine really irritates me. Then you have the "I have an odd feeling "down there". What's wrong with me?"
After 300 years you'd think they know WTF THAT was. No schooling for these people? No sex-ed, no health class? The boys of the species keep all this sex stuff a big fat secret?
