    do you think we should do sex as much we need it physically or we should restrict our self with social boundaries.
    do you think not doing sex as much our body needs makes us sex starved or addict or insane???????????

      I say, if you have the time to fit it into your daily schedule, then it will keep you extremely healthy.
      One will go insane, should they follow the second doctrine of religions to the maximum. The second doctrine of religions calls for one to oppress their inner desires, all of them. After a period of time, a person will go completely insane and most likely hurt or harm someone.

      That's just a thought. Interesting questions though.

        Why do priest and nuns do just fine without sex? Or, do you think the whole Catholic Church is insane? I think like you as far as religion in general goes, but, I don't think Catholic Priest and Nuns show mental illness more than people of any other religion or no religion.

          I find your post revolting to say the least. These people claim to abstain from having it, yet they do, not only with each other, but with children too? roll
          Not all of them, because most are just perpetuating the hoax known as religion or god, whichever the case. However, I would like to point out- pedophiles in churches don't give you a clue to the mental state of some? roll
          I'm glad you have your narrow view. Do keep it, it suits you.

          However, if any single person attempts to live their life, within DOCTRINE of their religion- just getting through the first three is unattainable and will drive one insane.

          Hence, a self-realization comes to be that religion is a hoax purported/perpetuated by others, for power, influence and wealth, and Nothing more. wink

          Elpaso do you think banning something this natural and human phenomenon is religious? I am not attacking christanity as hinduism, buddhism too have same theroies but every creature do it and this is so natural. we need it for having baby and you know if sex was not satisfying or entertaining and was suppose to be only a process, do you really think as much selfish we are right now we will do something boring and hard exercise just to have children. Why would nun or monk or pope wouldnt do it. is it sin?
          Why is it sin because its bring pleasure, and i question those religion who abandon pleasure, i question if  it is of god way but i believe thats human stupidity.

            I think it's stupid and downright unhealthy not to have sex as much as you can. But, you are a Hindu and I'm not religious. So we have no say in what practices Catholic Priests and nuns believe are their CALLING! Their reasons make sense considering the responsibility they take on. God Sustains them. They seem fine to me.

              Not that there's the most tact on this thread, but coming from a highly religious background, I was trained not only to abstain, but just plain not think about it!  Believing that God made me and life was about living for Him, I did everything in my power to whole heartedly follow what I was taught.  Considering we didn't have a TV nor easy access to the internet, I ended up not releasing any of that tension until I was 23!  (well, except for nights when those dreams just went wild!)  It was so bad for my health and I have so many muscle tension issues and others.  God, I wish I was corrupted at an earlier age!  So yes, sex is definitely very healthy.  That's not to say moderation isn't important, but each person has a different definition of moderate, and I say, to each his own!

              *Disclaimer: Letting lofty unrealistic religious rules dominate one's life often is unrealistic as man contorts and misinterprets and makes religion a misery.  That doesn't mean there isn't a god(s), and that spirituality doesn't exist.  I just find that man tends create religion, rules, regulations, and impossible standards that bread hypocrisy, misrepresentation of what they believe to be the truth, and turn religion into complete.   tomfoolery.

      Sex alone is an awful word for me. I use the term "making love, sounds better for me...It is noted to relieve stress and one of the best physical and mental exercise a human being could have..If couples perform it with full emotion, heart and all, the result would be awesome...also, it is the best "side-effect free" (even if taken  "overdozage") sleep-inducer...hahaha..(is there such thing as sex overdose?).. the best alarm to wake us up in the morning....for ladies, it makes the skin supple and glowing and radiant...young looking...beautiful...It is also a glue that binds marriage..couples.... I was told by a close friend last time that ONE of the things to keep husband at home  is "sex"..u can go to a restaurant for good food to fill ur tummy, anytime...but not sex with love.....

                  Yep, sex feels good and does wonders for your mood, but it's also fantastically great for your health. Research shows that people with active sex lives have stronger immune systems, less pain, a lower cancer risk, healthier hearts, and less stress. The best news: It can even make you look younger—up to 12 years, a study shows.

      double_frickposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      i do not.
      i think that those who feel the urge should satiate that urge in an acceptable manner (which varies from person-to-person) and when they do not that can make them less mentally fit.

      so repressing those urges=bad
      it causes a slew of other problems, sexual and otherwise.

      i think that for those that do innately have stronger/more sexual urges should either find someone willing to accomodate or choose to go solo (i mean single, having sex with various people...)
      i do not think this is bad, i think society as made people believe that the "correct" way to live is the typical tv family, but i believe some people are meant to be single. date around. eternal bachelors...ahhh the life...

      but the wrong part is when you expect someone else to match your sexual desires in a relationship...or go elsewhere when they do not...

      if you choose to be in a relationship...respect your partner.
      other than that...anything goes, IMO. *shrugs*

          To some extent, because what you find sexy is also influenced by what you think about someone.  The brain is definitely linked to sex as much as anything.

              Having sex just to say you are having or have had sex is pointless.

              big_smile  What I'm referring to is loveless sex.  I want no part of loveless sex - If I'm going to have sex in order to have a baby then by damn the man had better love me (first!!) and I had better love him (also first!!).

              Now, sex as a true act of love has no comparison.

              big_smile  What I'm talking about is the kind of sex that lasts for hours and hours and brings two people together, spiritually, as one.  The kind of sex that doesn't' tire you or bore you, but ignites further desire for more. big_smile


              Now, to answer the question again - No, I don't think we need sex in order to stay mentally fit, unless it's the only form of exercise one chooses throughout a lifetime and how sad a life that would be.

    Too much sex, or deeply inappropriate sex, is much more likely to cause mental illness in my opinion. What precisely is a 'lack of sex' anyway? Some people would be happy being taken home once and a while, whilst others are constantly on the look out for sex.

    Personally I would rather be somebody who is happy spending time with themselves than somebody who needs to get drunk and find a lay every weekend.

      There you go, that's a good answer!  The need isn't for sex so much as it is for meaningful and comfortable human companionship, and if that isn't available, to be happy by oneself.

        That is precisely what I was trying to convey smile

        In fact, I think that you may have hit the nail on the head. It is not the sex which makes people happy in the medium to long term, but the love or positive emotional attachment which can accompany or associate itself with the activity.

            No not at all, I am not that fickle. I actually agree with most of it, the only bit that I cannot condone is people getting called out in a forum title.... I have seen a negative thread with 'ryankett' in the title, and it can really unsettle you... because it is effectively an attempt to get people to gang up on the individual. But Mark is a big boy, he can stick up for himself (and I am sure that he will when he stumbles across the thread). smile

    To be honest, it doesn't matter what you call it, "making love," "sex," both involves intimacy. Sex is sex. The only thing that distinguishes love from sex is the person you're intimate with. Do you really care about that person? And if you are with your wife or husband, I don't believe that even their intimacy is always what it is suppose to be. Sometimes husbands want to have a quickie before time to go to work, and wives likewise. Every kiss doesn't mean "I love you." Sometimes, the kiss simply means, "good-bye, see you when I get back from work." I will say this, to answer the question, yes and no. Yes, you can stay mentally fit, but there will always be a desire in the physical body for intimacy in one way or another. That was God's gift to the married believers becoming one in the flesh, and through marriage. No, you will not stay mentally fit if the celebate lifestyle wasn't your calling. Very few people can be celebate without periodic sexual deeds sometime in their life. Not everyone is called to do that. Look at the Catholic priests (a whole lot of them), and you hear about what they've been doing to boys. It wasn't their calling to be celebate, the same way, it was not meant for mankind to be alone. The woman is the helper. The man is head of the house. The one can't do without the help of the other. So, the answer in my humble opinion is Yes and No.

    For some sex is something that people use to express theirselve's and their love.  For some people, sex is something people do for recreation.

    Sex is not a physical need.  It is so pervasive in society and it seems like we should have it.  Many people have gone a long time without sex and they are just fine both physically and mentally.

    1. Disturbia profile image61
      Disturbiaposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I don't agree that sex is not a physical need.   The desire for sex is a primal instinct, it is part of our genetic makeup, one of our major survival instincts.  Sex ensures the survival of the human race.

      1. Ben Evans profile image74
        Ben Evansposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Whether or not it is an instinct is really immaterial (and I am not going to get into that argument)because it is not a need like food or breathing. 

        While we yearn to have sex and we want to have it, a person can be mentally fine and happy and in good shape without it.

        Society tells us otherwise.

        Most people myself included enjoy sex but it is not a need.

    I believe that sex is necessary to anyone's healthy mental outlook - but that said, I think things like eating properly, exercising adequately, and taking good care of yourself emotionally and physically are right there at the same level.

    Will not having sex make you insane - I doubt it! Although I've never tried going without it - lucky for my husband! I just think that the endorphins released are good for brain stimulation and that is about as technical as I can get on a 'family oriented' site!
