Quote of the Day

"Being hostile to virginity is the ultimate misogyny. It means sneering at the innocence of children, and laughing at women who want sex to mean something more than just a hookup."

Wendy Shalit, quoted in Rachel Kramer Bussel's Village Voice column, "Like a Virgin: The Case Against Having Sex." Bussel, who is a senior editor for one of Penthouse's publications as well as the Voice's "Lusty Lady," has lately been displaying an interest in chastity that is unusual (if not unheard of) for a sex columnist.
