Little Babies Are More Chaste Later In Life

Where do people come up with these ideas for studies? In Finland, some researchers just discovered that people in their late teens and twenties who weighted less than 3 lbs. 5 oz. at birth were less likely to have left their parents’ home, be living with an intimate partner, or having sex than people of the same age who were a normal weight at birth. In terms of sexual experience, low birth weight women were more than twice as likely to still be virgins, and low birth weight males were nearly three times more likely to virgins. But, being born small might not be a bad thing. Low birth weight adults had fewer sexual partners, and the way people are contracting diseases these days, that means fewer chances to get infected with an STD. [Reuters] Keep reading »

    Faux-Virgin Rejected By French Court

    Lately virginity has seemed trendier than skinny pants. But just like the slim slacks, chastity also doesn’t fit everyone’s style. When our cool Catherine posted about Australian FHM’s poll where 28% of men said they hoped to marry virgins, we all shrugged — a guy can dream can’t he? We here at The Frisky have been enjoying the sexual revolution, and we thought the dudes of the world were too. Alas, no. This week, a French Court annulled a Muslim couple’s marriage because the bride wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night. When the man, in his 30’s (?!), didn’t have blood-stained sheets from his wedding bed to show his family, they decided to take her to court. While plenty of girls lose their hymen nowadays from activities like gymnastics, the bride confessed she had lied because she didn’t think he would marry her if she told the truth. So, under an antiquated French law that protects the “essential quality” insisted upon by the groom, the marriage was null and void. Boo! This verdict has enraged feminists around and the world as well as the Prime Minister of France and the rector at a Mosque in Paris who all see the ruling as reverting women to being commodities for men. Although, something good has come out of all this — this poor woman was saved from a lifetime sentence with a seriously unrealistic and demanding husband. [Yahoo News] Keep reading »

    Men Want To Marry Virgins

    FHM magazine in Australia conducted an online poll of 57,000 men, and 28 percent of them said they hoped to marry a virgin, while 41 percent wanted to marry women who had five sexual partners or fewer. The survey respondents were mostly college-educated, employed men in their late 20s, which makes me wonder, if Australian men between age 30 and 39 have slept with an average of 9.5 women, how can they expect there to be any virgins left? They’re not helping their own cause. Dr. Gail Hawkes, a sexuality expert at the University of New England said, “You would not be surprised if we saw that in 1960, not 2008.” We couldn’t agree more.

    Virgin Sacrifice: Father/Daughter Dance

    A benefit to raise awareness sounds like a good thing, but sometimes even a ball can be bad. Case in point: The Chastity Gala, a trend of father/daughter dances across the nation, aka the most uncomfortable parties we’ve ever heard of. Recently, in Colorado Springs, 150 fathers with girls from grade school to college attended such a purity ritual at a local hotel. Now, slow dancing with your pop at weddings can be sweet, but making a teenage girl swear to her daddy that she’ll carry her V-card until she marries sounds like cruel and unusual punishment (not to mention totally ludicrous). But even dumber than having to dance about virginity is the idea that these poor misguided dad’s think by taking a vow, “Before God to cover my daughter as her authority and protection in the area of purity,” they’re precious little flowers won’t grow up and put out. According to The New York Times, statistics have shown that teenagers who practice abstinence will eventually have sex before they wed and are unfortunately more likely to forgo protection. What’s really safer: upholding your daughter to an unrealistic moral standard so you can avoid the awkward sex talk or teaching her how to take care of herself and her needs in a way where she can respect her sexuality? Either way, no one should be forced to put on a fancy dress and parade around chanting promises they can’t keep. [Trend Hunter] Keep reading »
