Chicago Sun-Times gets The Thrill

Chicago Sun-Times staff reporter Leslie Baldacci has the best article I've seen in a while on single adults choosing to abstain from sex: "No sex, thanks." It's noteworthy in that it treats abstinence as a lifestyle choice, rather than erroneously reducing it, as some commentators do, to a decision based on religion or on conservative ideology. It also refrains from criticizing or belittling those who make that choice.

And she mentions my book! Yay!

FURTHERMORE: One thing Baldacci doesn't mention is that there is a difference between abstinence, or celibacy, and chastity. I offer a definition of chastity in my National Review Online interview.
