"Janes character is openly abstinent, but the show does not focus heavily on her abstinence, despite its inclusion in the shows title, and Jane is treated as a sexual, though not sexually active person. Throughout the first season, there are few times where Jane feels pressured to break her abstinence vow. Jane the Virgin distinguishes itself from other comedic shows and the telenovelas in the distinction it draws between sexual experience and sexuality. While Jane is a virgin, she is not asexual. The show illustrates this idea in many waysfrom her passion for writing romantic novellas to skinny-dipping in a hotel pool. She even goes so far as to write Michael an erotic note to which the narrator claims, Jane is a virgin, not a saint. The show avoids stereotyping Jane as simply a virgin and allows her to explore sexuality in ways other than sex. By doing so, it presents sexuality on a spectrum, rather than a binary of full-blown virgin or extremely sexually active. This realistic, nuanced perspective is unique in comedies and telenovelaswhere sex and sexuality are often conflated." Read more here.
