Boys at the school attended by virgin Lydia Playfoot have signed a petition urging the head teacher to allow Miss Playfoot to wear the ring.
"If Lydia's allowed to wear one, other girls who feel the same way might copy her and it's handy for us to know who's not up for it," one 17-year-old boy, who wishes to remain anonymous, told a TheSpoof.com reporter. "It saves us wasting time and money taking them out on dates when we know they're not going to come across with the goods at the end of the night. I mean, come on man, you were young once - you must remember what a bummer it is when that happens."
In an interview with Sky's Martin Stanford, Miss Playfoot came across as a bible-basher who has seized an opportunity to grab her 15 minutes of fame. With her father hovering smugly nearby she claimed that it was necessary for her to wear the ring as a symbol of her faith and to let the world know that she intends to remain 'sexually pure' until she is married.
Lydia - the world couldn't care less.
