Steve Carrel portrayed a 40 year-old virgin man in a movie a couple of years ago, but Pam Shaw is no actress and at age 70 she said she is so ready to lose her virginity.
Born 70 years ago and residing at Wigan, Greater Manchester Pam Shaw is a cabaret dancer at a London club under the name of Sexational Pam, she said she looked great considering her age because she s never been married or has any children, during her youth she lived with her mother Lillian.
“Men saw the outfits I wore on stage and thought I would be easy. But I’ve never really been intimate with a man, just a bit of kissing. I had a sexy stage name and dressed sexy but that was all for my career”.
Pam was always so focus on her job that she never gave love an opportunity, but hey! is never too late for love and especially to have sex for the first time.
“There has never been time for me to get a man. I worked so much that sometimes I’d only have an hour’s sleep each night. I wouldn’t entertain the idea of sex outside marriage — and marriage meant giving up on my dreams”.
“The only man I thought I could go to bed with was a guy who came to watch me every night when I sang in Malta. But I wasn’t prepared to settle down — so it wasn’t to be.”
However she still could be more famous as Pam Shaw the 70 year-old virgin, but you know what scratch that I think it will be better for her to be Pam Shaw loss her virginity at age 70 and is now pregnant, why a girl can be optimistic, can I not?
“Now’s the time. I’m ready to take the plunge for the right bloke. My standards are still very high, though. I’m hoping to bag a tall, dark and handsome millionaire.
“I feel I am ready to give marriage a go and maybe go to bed with a man. You are never too old for anything. Just look at Joan Collins. I like to think I’d be a real catch.
“I may be 70 but I’m young at heart. People can’t believe it when I tell them my age.
“I think I look great, maybe because I’ve never been married or had kids. I’m fun and have bundles of energy.”
Besides dancing Pam Shawn sings and acts, she has been a television extra for over 43 years, Pam starred as Auntie Pauline in the Ant and Dec film Alien Autopsy. Born in Springfield, Pam’s father Franks supported her with her career ever since she was a little girl at Wigan High School
“I was still only a kid when my dad got me into a show at Wigan Hippodrome. Every night, at a given signal, I was to sing from the gallery. It broke my heart when I had had to drop out. They discovered I was only 11 and theatre rules were strict.
“Two years later, I appeared in a variety show at the Hipp with the comic Ted Loon. All my school pals came to see me. It was magic. I was definitely stage struck … I still am really. What really got me going was doing charity shows around Wigan. My act was called Pam with the Pony Tail.”
She continue to shine as the years went by and everybody wanted a piece of the talented Pam Shaw..
“I reached a crossroads in my life … carry on working at the dole office or go into show business full-time. It was marvellous turning professional – both my parents were 100 per cent behind me and not long after I got dates at London’s Astor Club. Suddenly I was in great demand.
“I worked as opening act for lots of big names. I met Englebert Humperdinck and opened on stage for him, then did two years with Ken Dodd who taught me lots of tricks of the trade. I worked with Tom Jones and The Searchers, and Dave Berry. Slowly I became well known all over the north and suddenly invitations began to flood in for me to work abroad. I did a number of seasons in Malta.
“The first time I went for a fortnight and stayed 10 years off and on. I had my own radio and TV shows and I used to have my Sunday lunch with Patrick McNee out of The Avengers. It was while I was out there that I appeared in a film called Shout of the Devil – my first taste of TV work.
“I’d always been vocal but then people were asking me to act in small tv parts. In fact, Pat Phoenix who was Elsie Tanner in Coronation Street, supported my application to join EQUITY.
“I played many different characters on Brookside and loved being an extra in Boys from the Black Stuff. But I have to admit that being a vocalist has been my first love and quite a few years ago, I appeared in piano bars in both Hollywood and Los Vegas I worked on the Liberace show. He was a really fantastic man and really loved his mother.”
