I don't know about the score, but I have to respect your dedication to the cause. Far too many questions there for me to bother completing the test. I did complete a "Purity Test" once, in about 1991. It was printed out by a friend at university, 'cause they were about the only people I knew that generally had Internet access in those days. I was, what, 23 or so at the time, and I think I scored pretty high on the "pure" scale.

i went through a rather adventurous phase at ages 18-19, which mostly accounts for my score. if the questions were "have you done x in the past year" rather than "have you ever done x" my score would be a lot higher.

I got 773/4% pure.

This puzzled me. First of all, how can you have three quarters of a percent and secondly how can you be 3/4 pure on a sliding scale.

What, did I smoke but not inhale or something?

"how can you have three quarters of a percent "

Sorry, I don't get what's odd about this. Of course you can have fractions of a percentage point, since it's a ratio, not an integral value. 1/100 is 1%, 1/1000 is 0.1%. Im sure you know this, and it's some sort of brain fade; or I've entirely missed your point.

yeah. 77.75% is 311/400 questions.

What irritated me was that it was expressed as 3/4 instead of 0.75

Just struck me as odd.

You're just a thoroughly metric gal, eh? I'd probaby have agreed with you if it had been 7/18ths.
