Do you think the desire to stay celibate until marriage is related to an undeveloped or underdeveloped sex drive?

Most of the time it's a spiritual desire to stay pure for your spouse.

This drating question is too drating hard for me to drating understand. Too many drating hard words. I have a drating IQ of 187 ans drating cannot understand this, so I drating doubt anybody can drating understand the drating question. This drating question shouldn't have drating been approved.

I doubt the desire to stay celibate until marage has anything to do with one's sex drive.

It has much more to do with a person's personal moral code and belief system.

But a lot of people give commit to being celibate long before their sex drives develop. And many people give up their celibacy once they have sexually matured.

Possibly. I know that I don't understand that desire.

It's easy to commit to not doing something for which you have no desire.

I commit to not wearing spandex until I get old.

I dont think thats it at all..

Do tell then.

I think it does have a portion to do with that. I know a lot of people that say they are waiting till marriage, but once they are actually pressured, or even just get horny, they lose that. But that doesn't mean that people with high sex drives can't have high willpower as well. I just don't see it as very common.

It isn't common through out the country, but if you look at more of the higher christian populated areas, the rate will be higher.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 11/12/04 - 11:07:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
But don't you think that's because they have less pressure to do so? I mean, if you're in a public school and a not-so christian area, you're in a vast minority when it comes to being celibate (atleast, that's what I assume). But if you're in a thick christian area, that minority is much larger, if it is even still a minority.

No. It's morality, as wanderer said.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 11/12/04 - 12:40:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it's mostly morality, although having people around that you are accountable to helps (I think that's what nshrock and shaun54 are getting at).
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 11/12/04 - 1:34:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it's more than just morality. I think it has a lot to do with the age of someone's sexual maturity.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 11/22/04 - 5:29:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have to agree, it has a lot to do with how you were raised and what your beliefs are. I seriously doubt wanting to wait until marriage means there's something wrong with you.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 11/22/04 - 5:32:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Doesn't have anything to do with one's sex drive...it's just due to one's own personal beliefs.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 12/3/04 - 12:06:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think it has anything at all to do with your sex drive, except for the desire (for whatever reason) to keep it in check and be in control.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 1/15/05 - 12:49:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe its the desire not to be dirty or fell dirty and not to catch diseases from stupid poeple who think that they are invincible.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 1/15/05 - 12:52:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
it's more about their beliefs than anything else
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 1/15/05 - 1:08:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Interesting, some of you seem to think that actual value of right from wrong has something your interest in particiapating in subject. I mean, if you feel it's wrong to have sex before you're married, what does it matter if you have an urge to are not yet? Moreover, perhaps your objectivity might be better, not worse.

I think you're way off track here, exobyte. If your values change because of your physical urges, you've got no real morality worth talking about. You may as well say "I raped her because she was turning me on".

Interesting. I don't know personally. In my case, its just my belief and the fact I've only ever been tempted once.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 2/2/05 - 3:45:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
if you haven't had sex, how can you miss it, or know how it is. it's pretty easy to not have sex, til you actually do it.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 2/8/05 - 4:21:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
I completely disagree with the question. I am remaining a virgin until marriage, and I in no way have an underdeveloped sex drive. And, I've been in a serious relationship for 2 years. It has more to do with being completely binded to only one person.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 2/8/05 - 4:29:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not only it is, but it's also stupid. How do you expect someone to buy the car if they can't test drive it?
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 2/8/05 - 4:31:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
^So my beliefs are stupid.
Thanks, andread. God, I wish I was more like you.
