Crush on the chaste?

"Ultimately, 'The Thrill of the Chaste,' which is billed as a 'sexual revolution,' isn’t really about sex at all. It’s about letting go, getting faith and following God. ... Hopefully, Eden’s message will make it beyond preaching to the choir. Already, Radar reporter Peter Hyman has flirted with Eden in type (and personally offered to help break her vow of chastity). The New York Times, lo and behold, covered the book in a balanced, if tepid, review. Even the merciless gossip Web site Gawker, which has christened Eden 'everyone’s second-favorite scary conservative Catholic after Mel Gibson,' just can’t seem to stop posting about her.

"Eden’s sense of humor shines through in her writing, so perhaps they’re developing a bit of a crush — or, as Eden might put it, maybe they’re already thrilled by the chaste."
