"Purity Bear" A Smash Success?

Picture 31

Maybe "Purity Bear" is an answer to the execrable "pedobear" meme that sprang up on the web's various chans in 2010. Maybe it's an original idea, sprung whole and entire from the virginal minds behind the The Day of Purity. What's known is this: "Purity Bear" will go to really creepy lengths to stop pre-marital sex; his exploits has been viewed a quarter of a million times on YouTube; and he's garnered almost 1,500 "Dislikes" to less than 200 "Likes" ... and in the halls of Liberty Counsel, where unpopularity's taken as a given, that counts as a smash success:

A short video promoting sexual purity hit a quarter of a million views today. People from more than 175 different countries and regions have watched the student-produced video that was designed to spark interest and start conversations promoting sexual purity.

... Amber Haskew, International Director for the Day of Purity, said: “I’m thrilled that the message of waiting for marriage is reaching so many people! We are excited to spark a conversation about the physical, emotional, physiological and even financial benefits of waiting for marriage. I encourage each family and individual to make your own declaration of purity. Take a stand this year and encourage those around you to make healthy decisions.”

  3. The bear sounds hot? Is that wrong? The bear does sound hot though.

  4. Am I the only one amused by the sign on the door that reads, "Please Use Rear Entrance?"

  5. I agree with the Purity Campaign. Don't have hetero sex until you are absolutely certain that you are not gay! A lot of marriages and families are ruined when a spouse finally realizes that he/she is not truly hetero.

  6. It says "front entrance", pinko, but it's obviously a business and not a residence.

  7. How typical is it that the girl is the Jezebel temptress in this thing and it's the boy who's the saint?

    And based on the behaviors and obsessions of the adult male Religious Right figures, if a bear appears in the thoughts of these future Prudy McPrudes and puts a stop to any hanky-panky with girls, it's the hairy gay kind of bear with a leather harness and a schlong!

  8. I think this is just a underhanded trick to lure kids into a false sense of security with the purity bear then bam the pedobear takes his place and makes his move.

  10. Top Comment: "Approved by the sexual harassment panda." So far it's gotten 108 thumbs ups.

  11. How can anyone be good a sex without a lot of practice?

  12. "I know she's cuddly. Look at me. I'm cuddly."

    Translation: Do not make Purity Bear jealous. You won't like Purity Bear when he's jealous.

    Alan Brickman, If I didn't know the provenance of the video I WOULD have thought it came from Funny or Die.

  13. Pedobear started in 2003. It had entered the mainstream-meme world by 2008 and definitely by 2009 (CollegeHumor was doing sketches by then which means it's really jumped the shark.) 2010 would have only been for the real "Johnny-come-latelies."

  14. I think we all know that that young man went home and got it on with that bear. And that's okay because the Bible says nothing about sex with plush toys.

  15. A good parody would be Pedobear. A great parody would be a bear in a leather harness and chaps!

  16. You can tell he believes every word he's saying. (Yeah, right.)

    Smug little twirp.

  17. is it just me, or is she way out of his league?

  18. Remember the music video posted here recently with porn actor Arpad Miklos?

    This would be a PERFECT role for him!

    Teenage harlot throws herself at young Mr. Pings-Off-The-Chart and bear Arpad Miklos pops up behind him to council that maybe this really isn't what he wants to do.

    It would be far more honest than this version.

  19. Oh God, give me a break.

  20. LOL @ Caliban

  21. Losing your virginity in a suburban home that has a sign that reads "Please use other entrance" sounds awful, but I think it is outrageous to imply that losing your virginity will define the rest of your life.

    Posted by: Rolfe | Jan 28, 2012 2:32:09 PM

  22. Yeah... getting married at 16 so we can go knock it together... "feels right."

  23. They're just kids. Leave them alone.

    Posted by: Diego | Jan 28, 2012 4:38:58 PM

  24. Well... at least the guy is pretty hot.

    Seriously though? This is one of the creepiest things I've seen.

    Posted by: Steve | Jan 28, 2012 5:30:49 PM

  25. wow. i agree with @5COLLING5WORTH...let's go elope because "that feels right" so we can get it on! that's a good message to pass along!
