Guest GingerSnap Posted July 12, 2010 Report Share Posted July 12, 2010 I think the first thing to point out is that there are people like me that believe that sex should be reserved at a minimum to those in a serious, very serious relationship and my beliefs were for the most part in keeping the laws of God. These ideas changed after entering the military and seeing what this "casual" sex did to people and relationships, marriages, etc. I was actually horrified at what I have read on the forum concerning it to be a great way to release stress, like if you feel anxious just go grab a partner and.......:eek: I think a lot of pressure is put on individuals that have religious convictions about not having sex for the sake of "releasing tension", "fun" (what happened to our concern about AIDS), - get a hobby or what about sports. This heavy hint that one might have mental issues, people problems, whatever someone wants to term it just because they aren't having sex, is just nothing but wrong and inappropriate. Yes, of course, there are people who have serious issues or even minor ones that stand in their way of having sex but that is not the norm. (maybe this will serve to help those people sort out their issues or not) One should not be made to feel that their is something wrong with them mentally if they are not sexually active. I was a virgin until age 21 and my older son was a virgin until 27 as I preached "it is not to die for!!!!" - he is happily married to that woman for over 6 years now. I do think this topic plagues many people especially younger people. With the exception of those few that have sexual issues for whatever reason, a sexual relationship will come much easier than what you think when you feel secure in the relationship with that partner - merging of two souls versus whatever to heck that is where you are just releasing tension. While this topic may make some uncomfortable (there are more than a couple of topics I totally avoid), I don't think it would be fair not to have it available. And, to avoid the subject just because it might cause controversy, well, maybe Mark would like to make this forum about meditation only - I suppose that could spark some controversy too. And, sex is not to die for! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
