"Purity Ball Fun"
This really creeps me out.
Jessica Valenti notes in particular “the creepy pseudo-incestuous dad” and “the girls offering themselves ‘as a priceless gift’ in the purity pledge” as particular highlights. Personally, my favorite was a part where someone suggested that “purity” was the way to go because if you get involved in sex and dating and so forth there’s a risk of broken hearts. Tennyson sheds a tear.
My recollection is that, for better or for worse, studies indicate that this sort of thing doesn’t actually result in the women who make the “purity” pledges actually saving it for marriage.
