Virginity Pledge? What Virginity Pledge?

A new study looking at virginity pledges—promises made by teenagers to wait until marriage for sex—has found that such vows largely fell flaccid, as sexual behavior of pledged teens was little different than non-pledgers, and that, hilariously, a whopping 82 percent, five years later, had either forgotten or denied taking the pledge.
