The Dissatisfied Daughters of the Sexual Revolution

Email Print

Dawn Eden, a former groupie who had sex with many rock musicians, has rejected the view of female sexuality that she attributes to the “Sixties generation”:

I sacrificed what should have been the best years of my life for the black lie of free love. All the sex I ever had — and I had more than my fair share — far from bringing me the lasting relationship I sought, only made marriage a more distant prospect.

And I am not alone. Count me among the dissatisfied daughters of the sexual revolution, a new counterculture of women who are realising that casual sex is a con and are choosing to remain chaste instead.

My wife got this story from ModestyZone which she has been enjoying immensely. (ModestyZone is a project of Wendy Shalit who wrote A Return To Modesty.) See my wife’s popular and controversial LRC article The Evil of Dating (she still gets e-mail on this article, 4 years later!)
