Is it possible to be happy and celibate? The truth is if you are in a monogamous relationship, sex is healthy but if you are shagging around and giving your body to random strangers, then feeling like shit, its obviously not healthy.
Our body is our temple, something to be taken great care of, you only get one so treasure it. Sex is an addiction, just like chocolate. The perfect comfort blanket to make us feel good in the moment but beware, the consequences of sleeping around, unprotected sex can not only leave you with a dose of something nasty it will also affect you mentally and leave you feeling empty and very low. And whilst most STD's are easily treatable with no lasting side affects, Chlamydia is known as a silent epidemic, destroying the chances of young women getting pregnant and older women getting a life partner and you don't even know you've got it.
Celibacy is not about becoming a nun or unattractive to the opposite sex, its about being grown up, sensible and in charge of your life instead of hanging on to a romantic fairy tale in your mind and waiting for Mr Right to sort it all out. So the next time you find yourself on the walk of shame, check yourself and give some thought to how you are feeling in that exact moment. If you like the feeling then no problem but if you don't, remember it the next time you find yourself in the arms of a stranger or not. The definition of insanity is to repeat the same behaviour and expect a different result.
