I Am Celibate For Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 43 People

    I believe that God hasn't meant

    for me to be in relationships or have children like everyone else (some may call it the "gift of singleness). I think that I will fulfill my meaning in life (or destiny) by myself. I think that friends come into my life for me to inspire them and help them through something, but...

    The Road Less Traveled

    I have been chaste my entire life. I have not had sex of any kind whatsoever -- I’m a Virgin in the true sense of the word. There is really nothing unique about this. Despite what you may have heard, everyone is not doing it, and there are more Virgins around than you...

    Well, Not Really

    I am not really celibate for life.  I'm not really totally celibate right now.  But I've never seen how sex is so all fired great as people say it is.  I don't understand people who act like they  have to have sex or they're going to die.  I was married for seventeen years...

    Finally...

    Finally, after several tiring rounds of searching on the internet, I see that I am not alone! Finally I can read and share stories about this! I was beginning to feel like the last freak on the bloc. (Not that we're freaks.) But you know how it goes, especially for a young person...

    Right Or Wrong?

    I'm 38, been with my partner 23 years, married 13 years. The choice not to have sex just seem to creep up on me nearly a year ago. No kissing or any contact. I feel empowerd by it. Not that sex is bad or anything like that as I used to enjoy it. Just for me it has helped me...

    By Choice, Sort Of

    I'm a 33-year-old virgin. Sometimes I feel like I'm the oldest virgin I know. It's great to see there are others here like me. Coming to the decision to live a celibate life was something I came to gradually. I'm gay, and have a pretty healthy libido, but losing my virginity...

    I am a Christian. I have been one

    for 10 or 11 years. I struggle with same-sex attraction (though I didn't always consider it a struggle). I knew since I was five or six years old, that I was attracted to the same sex in the way that I thought of other males and my interpretation of something. I had no idea what...
