Host Gets Canned By PBS For "Technical Virgin" Vibrator Video

Just goes to show you that not only is PBS a bit too conservative and that past online acting gigs can come back to bite you in the butt.

Many years ago, there were a couple of hilarious public-service-style videos and parody testimonials at technicalvirgin.com. Basically, the premise behind the site was that you could still fool around and still technically be a virgin.

Melanie Martinez, one of the girls in one of the videos (which you can see below), got a gig hosting a preschool-targeted show on PBS's Sprout network. PBS recently became aware of the videos, and decided to can her.

Why PBS would ever think that a preschooler would know about these videos is beyond me, and Technical Virgin now has a link to a petition you can sign to bring her back.

Read on for the videos (and the other video they posted on the site). They're a bit slow-loading as YouTube is having some issues today.

And here was the other video that was posted on the site:
