I guess “saving yourself” doesn’t mean what it used to. And I’m quite unfamiliar with the way the Huffington Post uses the word “celibate.”

The occasion is a short blurb about Ashley Dupre’s pictures in May issue of Playboy. (That magazine gets more mentions on a religion blog than you might expect.) If you don’t remember Dupre, she’s the woman for whom Eliot Spitzer ruined his political career.

And here are the details we get:

In addition to an 8-page nude pictorial, Dupre gives an interview and says she’s now celibate.

Of course she’s not saving herself for marriage. How silly of me to think that was how that sentence was going to end.
