The important part to what I said is “consensual.” It is a biological drive that is on par with the need to eat but I don’t get to just walk into a restaurant and demand that they provide me with the meal that I desire whether or not they have tables available, whether or not I can afford to eat there, whether or not I’m dressed appropriately for that particular venue, whether or not they even serve what I am wanting to eat. Within this context, everyone has a drive to eat and deserves to have that need fulfilled, but that still does not translate into it being owed to them by anyone else.

I still do not understand why sex should be “in moderation” or what that has to do with greed or really anything about this topic, for that matter. Sexual energy is life force energy. It’s the creative essence of the Universe, and to create more than offspring. It’s why music and art (as well as musicians and artists) hold such inherent sensuality and the ability to move us deeply. It’s the underpinning of anything that holds ecstatic potential, including religion. The Church is the bride of Christ, after all.

What positive outcome arises out of intentionally moderating and suppressing life force?
