Eden isn't the first Christian woman to write about the joys of no sex. Lauren Winner's Real Sex: The Naked Truth About Chastity came out over a year ago. (Interestingly, both are Jews who converted to Christianity.) But Eden wins the prize for best title; those years of writing clever headlines for New York dailies have paid off.
The Salon interview recounts Eden's history of moving away from the rock-and-roll lifestyle and toward a more conservative, religious worldview.
There were times when I would count how many men I had had sex with in one two-week period and thought, "I must be this really hot, attractive chick to attract so many men." And men would compliment my technique and were thankful that I had read the Kama Sutra. But I said something recently on a panel discussion on chastity that made everybody groan but that is perfectly relevant: That is -- when thinking in terms of "How I can be happy without settling down with one person?" -- when you're 80 years old and an invalid, who's going to wipe your butt? I spent so much time as a rock journalist, interviewing people who really lived the sexual revolution. And the most youthful, happy people had found one husband or wife.
