Tbogged down

If you'd like to know how my Thrill of the Chaste tour is being received by anti-chastity bloggers, check out the self-proclaimedly "somewhat popular" Tbogg's profanity-laced reaction.

While I'm complimented that he thinks chastity is popular enough to be a "cottage industry" (we on the inside are always the last to realize these things), I can't help but think that he wouldn't lay the same commercialism charge if I were living unchastely and running a sex shop. In the eyes of anti-religionists, only people who promote a godly lifestyle are crass hucksters using morality to make a fast buck. By contrast, those who promote immorality as having pure motives —regardless if, like thrice-divorced Erica Jong, they continued to sell a hedonistic philosophy even as it wrecked their own lives.
