Purity Ring Biography

Purity rings (also known as promise rings, abstinence rings, or chastity rings) are worn as a sign of chastity. The practice originated in the United States in the 1990s among Christian-affiliated sexual abstinence groups. Wearing a purity ring is typically accompanied by a religious vow to practice abstinence until marriage. Chastity rings are part of the abstinence-only sex education movement. Those who wear or promote these rings argue that the only method for safe sex is abstinence.

Even though research suggests that purity rings are most effective when a child asks to take a purity pledge and wear the ring, it is often parents who initiate purity pledges. Parents list many reasons for believing that purity pledges and rings are necessary: sex is dangerous and leads to sexually transmitted diseases; purity rings can help to prevent pregnancy; boys will often be assertive or aggressive when seeking sex from girls; young girls who have sex are often shamed, yet they are also pressured to have sex by many of their peers; and popular media often encourages children to have sex. Despite these fears, scientific research suggests purity rings have little to no effect.
