RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

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.
