Is no "sex without monogamy" worth a try?

After having been out of the game for a while, I'm back into the dating scene. I've been meeting people that I'm interested in having a relationship with (one person in particular). I'm a 24 year old female who is looking for a long-ish term relationship rather than casual dating.
Patti Stanger says that if you're someone like me, you should stick to the rule No Sex Before Monogamy with the idea that your partner will "fall in love" with you more easily if you don't put out so quick. Kissing, making out are all fine and dandy, but oral or penetrative sex is a no-no.
I'm willing to try it, but I'm curious about whether this has any teeth. Anecdotes, rebuttals, etc are all welcome. I know each relationship is different, but if this is a pattern, I'll give it a shot.
