Absinence Clearinghouse

More web weirdness.

http://www.abstinence.net/

What's interesting is what they sell in their online store. No chastity devices. I'm disappointed.

Oddly enough, it looks like they promote the use of cock rings:

Re: Absinence Clearinghouse

Two of the featured products were a stun gun and a safety whistle. Scare tactics much?

I actually wouldn't mind having a stun gun, although the potential rapist would have to wait for me to dig it out of my purse before I could use it.

Wait, I did not actually read through that site, but preaching abstinence, and then putting anti rape items on the site implies that being raped will break your vow to be abstinent, and thus actually be something the victim did that was wrong....that is fucked up man.

Re: Absinence Clearinghouse

"Abstinence Clearinghouse" sounds like a corporate-owned whorehouse.

"From the owner of the Bunny Ranch comes Abstinence Clearinghouse! Lose your virginity in ultimate style and comfort, but only half the price!"

I want to know what goes on in the "War Room". Is it a "war on fun"?

Actually, that's not what it implies. Your "thus" is flawed.

Re: Absinence Clearinghouse

Is this like Publisher's Clearinghouse?

Millions of virgins enter a rigged sweepstakes then an old man shows up with balloons to fuck you if your name is picked?

I actually thought he made a good point. It does seem to imply that being raped is the same as losing your virginity. Perhaps it's not outright victim blaming, but if you come from a place where your virginity is highly important it does suggest that you have now been devalued. You are no longer "pure."

Also, I think it is best to refer to Fuckett Price Guide on this one. A "pure" virgin generally sells for $300-400 in M-NM, but raped virgins are considered "like a virgin" virgins and generally sell for only $200-250 in M-NM condition.

Less of a market on like a virgins as well, Satanic cults generally only sacrifice "pure," but then again a Satan worshiper would lack the moral compass necessary to realize that a rape victim is not to be devalued.

Hmm. You almost had it, but your execution was just a bit off.

Right. "Absinence"? It's actually refraining from drinking Absinthe, I think.

I guess it's a rape thing that y'all just don't understand.
