Her book is called The Thrill of the Chaste and her name is Dawn Eden.

And while the title intrigued me... the surface of such a topic seemed like one I'd touched upon before. It was a topic worthy of conversation, but one in which I assumed my mind was made up.
Could chastity, really be the only path to finding love?

"The real Sex and the City is vomitizing, so I think boring would be an improvement. Mad TV’s Sluts and the City parody was right on the money — “four smart single women in charge of their own lives,” indeed!"
Why is it that advocating chastity and love rather than sex, has to come with a side of judgment and ridicule?
Perhaps it wasn't Eden's former life as a "rock writer" practicing her own sex and the city lifestyle that kept her single, unhappy, or unmarried.
Maybe... JUST maybe... it was her judgmental attitude and feelings of superiority in a world where one decision doesn't always work for everyone.
