Would you pledge your cherry to your father? Purity Balls are being held in cities across the country where young women pledge their virginity to their fathers. The set-up looks like any wedding, but instead of marriage the young women are making a promise to their fathers.
Glamour Magazine reports:
Welcome to Colorado Springs’ Seventh Annual Father-Daughter Purity Ball, held at the five-star Broadmoor Hotel. The event’s purpose is, in part, to celebrate dad-daughter bonding, but the main agenda is for fathers to vow to protect the girls’ chastity until they marry and for the daughters to promise to stay pure. Pastor Randy Wilson, host of the event and cofounder of the ball, strides to the front of the room, takes the microphone and asks the men, “Are you ready to war for your daughters’ purity?”
Fathers give purity rings to their daughters vowing to protect their purity. BARF BAG! You know if it was a mother/daughter thing it would still be weird, but not totally uncomfortable. I can imagine a poor girl having to look her father in the eye as he promises that he will protect her cherry. I believe in bonding with daddy, but this is just unnecessary.
