  ...Tara McCarthy, author of "Been There, Haven't Done That: A Virgin's
  Memoir," has an unusual clause in her contract with Warner Books.  It
  stipulates that she remain "virginal in mind, body and spirit" until
  publication date.  Otherwise, McCarthy, 26, has to return her advance.

			from the "Bookmaking" column, Boston Globe, 4Jan98
			quoting the "Authors Guild Bulletin"

[Do you suppose that quote is accurate?  Would a publisher screw up the serial
 comma in that list?  Maybe they don't waste copyeditors on contracts...  -psl]
