I loved this book! It really put my past relationships into perspective and left me wanting a truly chaste relationship. I am a Catholic school teacher and when a lot of guys find that out they are intrigued for the wrong reasons. Then they find out how I feel about premarital sex and they try telling me that it's not really a big deal, but I must disagree. I suppose it is better to clear the air right away, but it would be nice to find a man who shares my beliefs (hence joining this site).

Prayer is, I think, the best defense we have against impurity...and one that I know I have often neglected. I just found this prayer and it really strikes me as a strong defense against impurity. Praying

The Three Hail Mary Devotion rose

With all my heart I praise Thee, Most Holy Virgin
above all Angels and Saints in Paradise, Daughter of
the Eternal Father, and I consecrate to Thee
my soul with all its faculties.
Recite a Hail Mary (In Honour of the Father)
By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, make my body pure and my soul holy; preserve me this day (this night) from mortal sin. Amen.


With all my heart I praise Thee, Most Holy Virgin
above all Angels and Saints in Paradise, beloved Mother
of the Son of God, and I consecrate to Thee my body
with all its senses.
Recite a Hail Mary (In honour of the Son)
By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, make my body pure and my soul holy; preserve me this day (this night) from mortal sin. Amen.


With all my heart I praise Thee, Most Holy Virgin

above all Angels and Saints in Paradise,

Beloved Spouse of the Holy Ghost,

and I consecrate to Thee my heart with all its affections,

and beseech Thee to obtain for me from the Most Holy Trinity

all the graces necessary for salvation.
Recite a Hail Mary (In honour of the Holy Spirit)
By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, make my body pure and my soul holy; preserve me this day (this night) from mortal sin. Amen.

When you talk to people use this line "I love chastity, but then again I'm normal..." I use it when I present and people get these strange looks.

How so?

Because I don't really understand how somebody can claim to love someone else, and then "dump" them because the person refuses to sleep with them. In what possible sense could you really care about someone you treat that way?

This is a problem that many of us have lived with through our entire dating experience, Roy.
