'Jane the Virgin' creator gives an update on Jane's virginity

Jane the Virgin is an attention-grabbing show title, for sure, but more than that, it suggests a lot about the show’s content.

Jane’s virginity, and its preservation, is at the center of the show. Eventually, though, Jane will have sex, so the question is: When will Jane be a virgin no more?

“The plan right now is for Jane to have sex when she gets married,” Jennie Snyder Urman, the show’s creator and executive producer, said while speaking at CBS Television Studios’ Studio Day. “That’s the plan. That’s important to her. That’s not something that we’re going to throw away.”

But, that’s not to say it won’t be an interesting ride, or that there won’t be challenges along the way. “We’ve all seen that just because she’s a virgin, she’s not prude. She’s an interesting, fun person and this is something that’s important to her, that she’s going to hold onto. Not that it isn’t going to be tested at various moments, but that’s the plan.”

When it does happen, though, Urman already has a show title in mind: Jane the Virgin.

Gina Rodriguez tears up backstage at the Golden Globes: 'The win meant everything'

Today is a big day for Gina Rodriguez: Her critically acclaimed show, Jane the Virgin, was renewed for a second season, and she won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Comedy for her turn as the titular Jane. This is her first nomination, her first win, and the first major award win for the CW.

Backstage at the Golden Globes, she was emotional and excited for what her win, as well as the show, means for the Latino community.

“First and foremost, the nomination alone was a win for me because it allowed our culture, it allowed Latinos to see themselves in a beautiful light,” Rodriguez said. “For me, the win meant everything.”

Speaking to the broader landscape of the Latino community on television, she added, “I’m definitely part of the testament that it’s changing. It’s not only something that I see, but something I experience everyday.”

She added, though, that her show tells a broader story beyond the Latino community, and pointed to the racial tension surrounding Eric Garner and Michael Brown. “We are dealing with a society that is so diverse, so beautiful and so human,” Rodriguez said. “We need to remember that we have the same stories, and see it as such.”

In a teary-eyed Q&A, she dedicated the award to her mom and dad.
