Asking the questions on a purity test in a group setting is a pastime that grew out of the sorority and fraternity culture and has now found a broader base of appeal with a larger community of people who enjoy the practice of taking a purity test. Judging purity test results was often a honor in the sorority and fraternity worlds, and the person who was judging purity test results was often the most senior member of the sorority or fraternity, such as the president or other high-ranking official in the club. Taking a group purity test together under the right circumstances can be a fun way for people to get to know each other quite quickly. If you are trying to encourage a group to bond overnight, you may find that a purity test is just what the doctor ordered. However, not every situation is an appropriate one for a group purity test, so if you have any doubts about whether the practice of administering and judging a purity test would be appropriate or not you may want to hold off and avoid making a mistake that could make some of your comrade uncomfortable.
A purity test is almost always sexual in nature, although there are a growing number of tests that have to do with aspects of life that are not related to sexuality. For example, fan clubs of television shows or movies often devise a purity test that will determine how many facts new members know about the show or movie, or how devoted existing members are to the show or movie. Despite these nontraditional offshoots of the purity test world, the majority of purity tests are still mostly related to sexuality and romance.
Common purity test questions usually relate to sexual practices. Most purity tests start with fairly benign questions that determine the general dating history of the person being tested. The questions at the start of the purity test usually ask about things like holding hands, staying out late, dancing with members of the opposite sex, and other fairly harmless activities that are unlikely to cause any embarrassment. From there, things begin to get more complicated and a bit more likely to induce blushes. After the initial warm-up questions about dating and love, things start to get a bit steamier. Questions inquire as to the kissing habits and proclivities of the person being tested, and then move on the bulk of the purity test.
Most of the questions on a traditional purity test such as the ones done by fraternities and sororities are meant to uncover the level and type of sexual activity that the person being tested has participated in. These questions ask intimate, detailed questions about oral sex, manual sex, copulation positions, and other sexual practices. This gets a lot of information that is usually kept secret out into the open air very quickly, which can have positive results as it brings people closer together and creates a bond of shared information. However, in the wrong setting a purity test can feel invasive and even abusive, so before you consider administering a purity test consider the feelings of everybody in the room. If you have any doubts about whether everybody will be absolutely comfortable with the raunchy content of a purity test, you would do well to avoid giving a purity test in that particular setting.
