Keep It in Your Pants Dance

I find it somewhat creepy that girls pledge their virginity to their fathers, and that they do it at a "Purity Ball." Don't know what a purity ball is? From Glamour, "It’s like a wedding but with a twist: Young women exchange rings, take vows and enjoy a first dance…with their dads. “Purity balls” are the next big thing in the save-it-till-marriage movement."

That's wonderful. I could feel better about these events if there were some kind of balance to them. Why should women always be the ones fighting for our purity, our "flowers"? It's bullshit. That's why I would love abstinence moms to organize a "Keep It in Your Pants Dance", where mothers and sons got dressed up and shared some quality time together. And moms would take vows to defend their sons' virginity from known whores in their town. And the evening would culminate in boys taking the "I'll keep it in my pants until after my wedding dance" vows. And they could buy abstinence merchandise that's so popular among the girls, baby-tees emblazed with the slogan "Not Boning 'Till Marriage".

Let's have this be a two-way street.

I agree, young women now have the opportunity to meet some generous older gentlemen. I think it only fair that the young lads have the same opportunity to meet some possibly attractive moms.

... Oh wait I may have missed the point.

Wow! What will hypocritical adults think of next. No sex until marriage... what a concept.

How about no children for stupid people... not even a small pet!

Christians are soooo funny. Isn't this merely a one hole exclusion? I love technical virgins. Back of a Volkswagen.

You're right, this should be equal so no outsourced poon for males. Not putting out goes both ways.

Actually this brings up an important point, does necrophilia count?

Why burn the bra when I'm sure you could eBay it?

"Sell your bra on eBay" sounds more Hugh Hefner than Huey Newton.

Everybody deserves the ability to make their own real choices.
They should be free to abstain from sex or advoctethat others do, but I'm against a bunch of busybodies up in other people's business.
However, limiting males and females the same isn't a good enough answer for me. I come from a "liberation for anyone is liberation for everyone" school of thought.
