A coterie of brave, attractive women in New York City—led by spiritual guru Julia Allison—are pledging to give up sex for upwards of two weeks in a purifying "celibacy cleanse." Like a juice cleanse, but less sperm.
Lord knows we are in no moral position to cast aspersions on the spiritual seriousness of people angling to appear in a New York Post trend story. But let's just take a statistical look at who reporter Mandy Stadtmiller was able to round up as examples of the sexxxy new celibacy trend:
- Musician Katie Jean Arnold, who's been celibate ever since "hooking up with a stranger on the L train platform" two weeks ago.
- Canden Bliss Jackson, Miss Teen Alabama 2007, who turned down an offer of $150k per year from an "international businessman" to be his sex toy. Canden wants to be celibate until marriage. The sexual habits of Christians from Alabama do not count.
- Protofameball Julia Allison, who's declared "an official ‘No Dating, No Sex' stance, at least for the next month, and perhaps beyond that." Take note, Julia Allison paramour hopefuls. [UPDATE: Coincidentally she just left for an ashram for "several weeks." Ha.]
- Colette Komm, who says "I totally sublimate all of my sexual energy into making wedding dresses." No comment.
