Fun:Abstinence balls

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Ben-wa balls Abstinence balls.

Abstinence balls are small, spherical stress relief toys designed to be squeezed whenever one feels carnal lust. They usually come in pairs, much like Baoding balls (but not ben-wa balls!), are most commonly found in blue (the internationally-recognized colour of chastity) and filled with saltpetre.

Perhaps it should be noted that in a recent survey of 100 teenage girls who purchased the balls, 97 said they bought them for "practice" for their boyfriends.

Or possibly it's the balls talked by supporters of abstinence-based sex education, provably far and away the least effective way of preventing teen pregnancies in the world.
