How Long Would You Go Without Sex?

Next month's issue of Spin is reporting that Lenny Kravitz has been celibate for the past three years — shocking, I know! He said:

Where I'm at in life, the women have got to come with something else, not just the body, but the mind and spirit. It usually trips them out, but that's the way it's going to be. I'm looking at the big picture.

Since some people are able to have sex without love, this may seem a little over the top, but for those of you who need a deeper connection like Lenny does, tell me, would you go so far as abstaining from sex for years until you met someone with the whole package? Years ladies, years!

I think he has the right idea - many peeps are looking at sex in a more quality not quantity way. I joined and have met a lot of really fun people, and I am able to be completely myself, with no unrealistic expectations. When I meet the right guy tho, watch out!!! Bluedakini

I have been celibate for three years and counting now. It was pretty difficult at the beginning but now its so not a big deal. Ideally I'd like to wait until I get married but...we'll see. It is soooo cleansing!!

I think that if he's telling the truth then he's a really honorable guy. It takes a man to say he wants love and not just sex. Way to Go Lenny.

I'm picky so I can go for awhile without sex - sometimes a year. I'm not really into casual sex and have to know the guy pretty well or else have a really strong connection. Weirdly though, I still really like making out! I know it's kind of high school-ish, but I enjoy it very much and it can keep me occupied until I find someone worthy!

Lost my virginity last year at age 25. To say the least, I can wait a lifetime for the right man. Fortunately, it didn't take a lifetime to find him. And, prior to finding him, a very big 'NO' to casual sex. Even if I had wanted sex soooo badly, I never lost my discipline. Sex was and is something I associate with deeply profound love.

Maybe? On the one hand, if things ever went horribly, horribly wrong and my boyfriend and I broke up, I can't see myself getting that close to anyone else anytime soon, and I'm not a believer in casual sex. On the other hand, it wouldn't be easy. I'm not hard to turn on, it's a problem. :) This past summer, I was away from my boy for 3-4 weeks at a time, one of those stretches was with an ocean in between us as I was doing a study abroad trip in Ireland... it was, difficult, to say the least, both for lack of physical closeness and only being able to chat online/by phone.

I didn't have sex until I was with my boyfriend, and we waited for 10 months before we slept together, then... two months this summer is the longest I've gone.

I went 18 months and I was IN A RELATIONSHIP. He was christian. I soon broke him down after about 18 months. It was horrible though, complete torture. I couldn't go for more than a few weeks?

I've gone for long periods of time without sex. If I wasn't with my current b/f almost husband then i'd still be celibate. I made a choice for myself that I didn't want to have a long string of partners because it just made me feel like I was devaluing myself. I love sex and now I have it all the time, but I know that if I wasn't with the great guy I have I could go back to no sex no problem.

I once considered becoming a nun, and had no problem with the idea of lifelong celibacy. Now, of course, I'm married, so that's out of the question.

I could wait forever. I know I'm a weirdo, but I was 20 when I first had sex. I'm just not into casual sex, and I wanted to wait until I was in a serious relationship. As it turns out, I'm still with the guy, and we're getting married next year. He had only been with one person before me, so it's this private thing that is totally ours.

Being able to go a lifetime without sex does not indicate that there's something wrong with you. People do it all the time.

OK I know this sounds way off base, but if you could go your whole life without sex, there must be something wrong with you. Period. That being said, celebrities lie about celibacy all the time. I dont believe a word of his statement.
