I say absolutely not.

It's our human nature to have sex and to release our sexual energy.

There are asexual people out there who are not interested in sex at all. I think i read that 1 out of every 100 people are asexual, so it is possible.

Plus some people are just strong enough.

But if you are asexual, isn't there some kind of surgery to correct that. We all need sex and to have orgasms.

It's not a matter of surgery...it's a matter of desire.

How can anybody not want to feel the pleasure of sex? An orgasm is the greatest physical feeling.

If people want to be celibate, that's entirely up to them.

If people don't want to be, that's fine, too. It's all a personal choice thing.

But the urges have to be intense. Human beings are made to have sex. It's our nature. I can't stay celibate for one day. It's not possible. I have tried. But I just can't stay celibate for one day.

Orgasms are wonderful but its entirely possible to live a very happy life without them. Some people are perfectly content living a celibate life, whether its a conscious choice not to have sex or they simply aren't interested.

I really don't think most people are at the mercy of their sexual urges to a point where celibacy is impossible.

Yes, entirely possible, if one has valid reasons to be so. Nothing weird about it, imo.

Just because people don't have sex doesn't mean they don't want to. And I've had some pretty damn good back massages!

Anyway, to prove my point, first I have to admit that I'm a closet MTV junkie and religiously watch every season of Real World.

Currently, there's this girl Lacey and her boyfriend is paralyzed from the waist down. On this week's show, she was thinking out loud about how much she cares for him and wants to stay together regardless of his condition and how people think she's a freak because she's a virgin and would never be able to have sex. She didn't really seem to care. It's not that she doesn't WANT to have sex, but that she's happy with her relationship and doesn't find sex to be a good enough reason to give that up. Sounds alright to me.

Well, some people are just able to control it better than others. Sex is indeed a natural action, yes, but some people just somehow manage to do it. I don't know how, but they just do. And I don't know if you can fight nature forever, but then again, who knows .

Exactly. Sex isn't EVERYTHING.
