I Am Celibate

No Sex Please, We're Frigid! 538 People

    I'm Broken And I Don't Know If I Can Be Fixed

    I have a messed-up relationship with sex. My mother had a string of men going in and out of her bedroom, and I was molested by several of them. I became promiscuous at a young age and equated sex with worth. When I was homeless I was a prostitute, and learned how to use my vagina...

    14 Years and Counting

    I have been completely celibate for 14 years now (1993).  That means I was celibate for the entire decade of my 20s!  A pretty rare feat, I believe!  I totally disagree with the byline for this group.  I am in no way, shape, or form "frigid"!  I...

    4 Years And Counting

    So yeah, 4 years and counting I have been celibate. 4 years since I've even dated to be honest. There's several reasons why I am walking this path per se, and I am happy with my decision. One of the major reasons I am celibate is that I feel sex is just... well messy and...

    Celibate For Now...

    I used to be in a marriage. It ended 2 and a half years ago just before our 21 anniversary. Since then I have been celibate by choice. No hugging, kissing, holding hands, dating, touching or even flirting with anybody. I wanted time to work on myself. It was only after the...

    Married For 3 Years Without Sex

    Neither of us intend to do it. It would turn the balance of our relation upside down, what was normal would become awkward. And i would lose my best friend. You do not need sex to feel love or to know how important your partner is to you.

    3 years and running..

    . I refuse to sleep around until marriage( again) although sometimes I do tease men but that's all they're gonna get and nothing more. I guess that's the sadist part of me but if a guy can't respect my decision to wait then he's not worth my time.

    It complicates things entirely too much.  And right now, in my life, I really do not need complication.  I need simple.  So giving up sex is one way to do that.  Sort of.  It's not easy.  Especially since there is one person that I very much enjoy having sex with.  But sex...

    I am celibate because I feel like only bad

    karma comes from having sex when you feel like it's too early, or you're not in love with that person. It's about respecting myself, and waiting for someone who's worth my time, effort, mind, soul, and body. I won't just use up my body for a few minutes of pleasure.

    Celibacy is not that you don't have sex.

    basically it's applies in your thoughts and any fantasy of having sex can break you celibacy even desiring of any **** image is break of your celibacy and don't stroke too. Then it will give you such gift of life that you never imagine.
