Sex Rocks, But...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 with him really does complicate things even more. So I'm giving that up. Or at least trying to. This is an ongoing process, the whole celibacy thing. Not a pass/fail thing, but more of a do it better next time sort of thing. At least for me.
It's not about belief that sex should only be reserved for marriage or commitment or whatever. I have no problem with casual, no-strings-attached sex. Of course, I also thing that casual, no-strings-attached sex is much more difficult to come by than most people realize. Most people are hard-wired to form attachments, especially attachments where sex is concerned. Those one of the reasons I'm giving up sex. Because I've had the wrong people get attached to me way too many times; and I've gotten attached to the wrong people one too many times.
So here I am, trying to give it up. Working on it. Not easy, but still trying.
