Chastity: (n) the act of abstaining from sex
Sex is problematic because it feels good.
So the Creator, in His wisdom, made the encounter the best few minutes of your life.
Although there are men who tout that they can go on for hours, the true goal is the last seven seconds.
That’s the memorable part. The rest is exercises to prepare for the game.
There are those who insist they enjoy the exercises, similar to muscle men who go on and on, discussing the value and delicious taste of a kale health shake–but basically, it’s that last seven seconds. And those seven seconds can control your life and make you do really stupid things if you’re not able to put it in perspective.
Standing in the way of common sense and clear thinking is the concept of chastity.
Although the individuals who preach this doctrine tout the value of purity and the glory of being free of guilt and sexually transmitted diseases, it does leave one hollow, without feeling love–vacant of a certain measure of satisfaction that was intended for our species.
Even the Creator said it’s “not good for a man to be alone.” Because in that loneliness is a sense of incompletion, because of not being loved and feeling the physical benefits of the experience.
- What is the right amount of sex?
- What is the wrong amount of sex?
- When is sex evil?
- When is sex good?
- Is it only good if you’re married? (May I be truthful and say that married people, to judge by their facial expressions, are the worst advertisement possible for marriage.)
- Is sex only good if it’s naughty?
- Is sex only exciting when it’s with strange flesh?
These are great topics for discussion, that should be debated in a house of worship instead of a locker room.
But since religious people are afraid of sex and locker rooms don’t have that intimidation, many of the misconceptions, misrepresentations and even dark applications for this glorious piece of pleasure will continue to be whispered by those who are truly ignorant.
