I'm Chaste, My iPhone Says So

Posted on: July 14, 2009

For those of you that think that purity rings are too old fashioned, you can now take a purity pledge (complete with purity ring) on your iPhone!

The PurityRing App is a new way of both displaying this incredible committment but also a way of engaging and helping a new generation. The App is simple to use and will be a lasting digital reminder to all those that take the pledge. The App will simply ask you to take the vow, the user will then hear the Purity Pledge being read out and once the user has confirmed their acceptance, they will receive a timeless digital spinning Purity Ring to proudly display on their iPhone or iPod Touch.

The app, made by Island Wall Entertainment, at least has purity rings for men and women, instead of just focusing on women’s sexuality. Not that it’s a whole lot better though.

Even though purity pledges and purity balls are still sweeping the nation, evidence shows that these pledges don’t work in keeping teens and unmarried people “virgins.”

I can’t say that I’m surprised by this new app. Many organizations, such as the Abstinence Clearinghouse and True Love Waits, are still powerful interests. Purity balls are still popular. But really, does this have to go into popular technology?
