It's Not Just a Religion Thing.

When a group forms to encourage abstinence most people, including myself, assume it's a relgious group. It was with pleasure that I read of secular groups that are also concerned about casual sex.

It cheapens sex and makes love more difficult.

Besides I have yet to hear of anyone dying from or taken to the emergency room because of horniness.

Furthermore, even the famous atheist Sigmund Freud realized that suppressed libido can help stimulate creativity. Perhaps that's why so many great works of art were made in the past.

Casual sex? How about that on a more massive level? How about the complete eradication of an entire continent called Africa via AIDS?

Wait... Not having sex can eliminate AIDS? I thought you could get it just by looking at someone that had it and the only way to stop it was to carry around a condom in my wallet!

I couldn't open the link. Oh well...

One of the most creative and fascinating men (IMHO) in history, Leonardo da Vinci said: "The art of procreation and the members employed therein are so repulsive, that if it were not for the beauty of the faces and the adornments of the actors and the pent-up impulse, nature would lose the human species."

Yet, there is considerable discussion that concludes he was a homosexual and quite horny.

Incidentally, Freud said about Leonardo: "Yet while no definite proof exists of Leonardo's homosexuality, there are plenty of indications, in his drawings as well as in his writings, that he was attracted to males, and, as Freud puts it, 'doubtful whether he ever embraced a woman with love'."

I agree that casual sex cheapens sex, but sex can be cheap even in the context of marriage depending upon the attitudes of the people involved.

I'm a very traditional guy Shop and most definately a one woman man, besides, IMO, it's never as good as the one you truly love, it can take some time to master great and syncronized sex that you BOTH enjoy...

Can't be selfish or it's no good!
