So I guess it begs the question as to why so many have taken, and continue to take, these chances. Perhaps it’s just an exercise in understanding the nature of man. We almost always inherently seek short-term pleasure in lieu of temperance be it sex, food, or a long list of other pleasures (not all inherently bad in and of itself mind you) this world has to offer. Long term payoff, in the case of volitional abstinence, is just not appealing, or tangible, enough it seems. But then again, when was anything worth fighting for quick and easy. The “reward” of sexual abstinence surely isn’t.
In the end, despite missing out on the thrill of going north of a 100 mph, it’s probably better for me to remain consistent in my ideology here. I may not be the most exciting, thrill-driven, pleasure-seeker (and believe me, I love sex despite never having had it)…but perhaps that type of self-control is a good quality to have. Here’s to all the others that persevere in their volition to forgo the easy access of unsanctioned sex. Yeah it may not be as fun (it isn’t, and generally sucks), but at least there’s no chance you’ll get a immediate reckless driving citation and have your car impounded.
