Is There Still a Secular Virtue of Chastity?

The virtue of chastity has traditionally been portrayed as an excellent personal disposition towards the ideal ordering of sexual desire such that the agent desires that which is actually good for both the self and others affected by his or her sexual desires and actions. From the Stoics to the Enlightenment thinkers it had been thought that chastity was a valuable virtue that was worth developing for the sake of both self and others based entirely upon secular reasons. Yet, that view is less common today. Instead, chastity is sometimes portrayed as an unnecessary ideal with few secular benefits that could not be otherwise obtained.
