Also, just a point that bothers me in general (when all people do it) something can't be "more necessary." Either something is necessary or it isn't. The same goes for "more perfect." That has always bothered me about the Constitution!

Also, had you simply clarified way back several comments ago and said, "I didn't say having sex is necessary to healthy human life," rather than calling my question silly, I would have had no reason to continue to comment on why it isn't. Instead, you initially let that statement stand. When you did clarify I went on to say why I thought you were saying one thing.
lilkimbo lilkimbo 9 years
What was the point of this statement: Please, teach your children that sex kills and guns save lives. Apparently you are not above saying things that have no point. Unless of course you can explain the point of that statement to me.

I expected more from you as well. You have absolutely no idea what I considered or did not consider; I would stop making such heavy accusations.

It would probably make you feel pretty self-righteous and superior, no? That's how it appears.
lilkimbo lilkimbo 9 years
I wonder what it's like to be able to dismiss those who don't agree with me with self-righteousness and sarcasm.
lilkimbo lilkimbo 9 years
I believe it became childish when you started calling the opinions of others silly.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 9 years
Steph, you are the ONLY person talking about guns. Same as war casualties in the abortion thread.
lilkimbo lilkimbo 9 years
And you also said a few comments later that if I don't believe a healthy sex life is necessary for the majority of people then it wasn't worth arguing, implying that you do believe it is. You can say you were misquoted all you want, but you weren't.
lilkimbo lilkimbo 9 years
You said it was more necessary than owning a gun. Necessary by definition means needed. I did not misquote you in the least.

Sorry Lil, I had to work on a project - you know that I have never run away intentionally from a conversation with you. I actually said "A good sex life can indeed protect a person psychologically" I did not say that a person had to have sex to be healthy - you did. Then GS took it further, claiming that I said "that having sex is necessary to be happy". You both misquote me, say that what I haven't said is offensive and ridiculous and thus your points are proven.

Thanks Martini! :encore:

That's because, Hypno, you have proved yourself on here as being a happy type of person who understands that things aren't always black and white! Kudos!

Hey hunterme I'm 100% thrilled at all times,LOL, I'm not cranky.

great question, hunterme! ;-)

And you're right, Hypno, the M word can play a role, too. I think that only serves to back up my point that you don't need person-to-person sexual contact to lead a healthy, fulfilling life.
lilkimbo lilkimbo 9 years
I'm not saying sex doesn't have its benefits, just that you can live a full, healthy life without sex.
Lady-Boleyn Lady-Boleyn 9 years
If sex makes everyone so happy, why are so many people on this board upset and cranky all the time? :ponder:
hypnoticmix hypnoticmix 9 years
You're right GS sex is not necessary to be happy. I think this debate has gone on so long and become so circular ya'll are just becoming lax in your choice of words.
hypnoticmix hypnoticmix 9 years
Well now now wait a minute I see what you're saying lilkimbo but steph has a point. People who have a healthy sex life have been none to have longer life spans and lets keep in mind (I haven't seen it mentioned here unless I missed it) that the M word plays a great roll in sexual satisfaction as well. It does not have to always be person to person.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 9 years
And saying that having sex is necessary to be happy is ridiculous. for the reasons pointed out above, and many more.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 9 years
Steph, as you pointed out on another thread, you are smarter because you are liberal, so I am suprised you have no answer. http://www.citizensugar.com/node/1819347?page=0#comment-3651916

I agree with you, Kim - neither sex nor a gun are necessary for basic human life. Now the not having sex will not kill you part....hmmmmmm....that depends - is it Leonardo Dicpario lounging there in my bed.... :drool: JK!!!
lilkimbo lilkimbo 9 years
I agree with your points, Martini. I just take offense to the notion that having sex is necessary for a healthy human life. Of course it makes a lot of people happy, but I wouldn't say it's a necessity like food, water, shelter, etc. Not having sex will not kill you. Not having a gun might.

I will just jump right in, although a bit late... I think that abstience education has a place along with education about birth control methods. I do agree with GS that it is important to be honest with your children and to teach them that to respect themselves and to value their bodies. We need them to instill in them self-control and the notion that they are more than just their urges and desires. I also think it is important to teach them what to do to protect themselves against disease and unwanted pregnancies if they do chose to have sex. I think Stephley may be saying that part of a happy life is to have a satisying sex life. (is that what you meant, Steph?) I agree with that to a point. But, I also think that you can be just as happy without having sex - there are many people who chose to live celibate lives.
