Awkward Sex Series Part one: The “untouched” subject when discussing celibacy

03 Jul

There are countless articles talking about the health benefits of sex, masturbating and such the like. Go to any site for popular health magazines and they will often sit in the line-up for suggested articles.  There are many resources that talk about the benefits that sex has on the general well being of men and women alike, as well as how to get the most out of the experience. However, in order to find anything talking about the benefits of celibacy you like likely have to do a search on your own.

Its not that celibacy (chastity, abstinence, or just not having sex in general) in and of itself is untouched, but rather that it seems that many of those who write on  the subject are those who seem as if:

a.) they see no value in practicing celibacy

which seems related to a possibility that

b.) they see no reason for celibacy

which may give the appearance that

c.) they have not experienced (intentional) celibacy.

Again, I cannot say that everyone who have written an article against celibacy is sexually active, but it seems to be the case.

While looking for articles that discussed the benefits of abstaining, I found that there are may people who are against such a lifestyle. One person in particular seems as if he hated when anyone said that abstaining was easy. Another woman claimed that she felt unloved and unwanted by her husband who no longer wanted sex. It appears that sex and sexuality  seem to be so much of a norm in western culture, that most people could not imagine the possibility or not being sexually attracted to anyone (asexual).

In my personal experience, I have had statements ranging from “good for you” to “you guys just need to get it over with already” (coming from people who know my stance against fornication). With that in mind, it seems like those who desire to live a chaste lifestyle do not have very much support out in this fallen world (let alone being subjected by images and stories that tell them they need to get to poking for their health).

Until God hits the reset button.
