The application has a pre-recorded pledge for both genders that the user must accept before being able to display their ring on a loop.
“We are preaching to the converted, and we’re going for people who wouldn’t buy a ring. The app is not the be-all-and-end-all of purity pledges: it’s an entry point.”
That’s what she said.
Asked whether the virtual nature of the ring might lead people to forget their vow of abstinence in the heat of the moment, Bennett replied: “If you’ve taken the pledge, you’re likely to follow it through.”
I do know how we can get the app to work, though.
Program it to sense when your hand is holding the iPhone. If your hand lets go of it, that can only be because you’re about to have the sex.
At that point, the app begins to make an annoying noise that only your father can turn off.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you make an abstinence pledge work.
