NY1 TV cuts to the chaste

I became a talking head over the weekend when NY1, the New York City-based cable news station that's viewed throughout the Empire State, featured me and my book as the center of a trend story about chastity in the city. You can read the story and view it on NY1's Web site — click the link underneath the story's headline on that page to see it in RealVideo, or click the photo of me above.

Village Voice sex columnist Rachel Kramer Bussel, who gave my book a qualified endorsement, offers an alternate but not entirely contradictory view, while my friend Drusilla, below, of Heirs in Hope, also appeared in the story as another woman who lives chastely. She had the best quote of the whole piece:

"I can relax. I don't have to be a net to catch a man."
