Sex is a simple pleasure that grows all out of proportion when it's denied. If Mother Nature were allowed to have her way, this would be a far better place. And who's behind all the brouhaha? God? Actually, it's religion.

Why There's Absolutely Nothing Wrong With Celibacy

Lori Lothian | Posted 07.06.2014 | Fifty

I'd love to see sex therapy include celibacy on the menu of choices for a couple instead of diagnosing a non-sexually active couple as needing a remedy.
