JB, I think at this point you realize you were incorrect and continue to post despite not answering the questions simply because you do not like to admit you were wrong. I can understand that, it's not fun being wrong. But admitting and changing your stance makes you better in that you are more correct than you previously were.


There is no withdrawal. I also don't function well with lack of food, or sleep, or money, etc. It's not withdrawal from those things, it's that those things are necessary to live how I would consider comfortably. I do not suffer because I have made it a point to not lack sexually.

I truly am sorry that what happened to you made you think that a natural function of human life is suffering, but your experience is not universal. You are going to have to understand that if you ever want to make some progress.

Yes. Basically, I suffer when I am not sexually active. A venn diagram with my sexual activity and promiscuity would be almost a perfect circle. This seems to fly in the face of what JB is proposing. My question would be how would JB account for my suffering? How would she explain my lack of suffering when I have varying partners?

You said you suffer not me.  I posted and defined promiscuous a few pages back. 

I said I wasn't a mind reader and asked the questions I think will help me understand what you are saying.
"When I am not sexually active" is the key phrase. If I am sexually active then I am not suffering. When I am sexually active I am also being promiscuous. This flies exactly opposite to what your initial assertion was. You see how, no?

It does not fly in the face of withdrawal.  Your suffering sounds like withdrawal. 

Are the women in your life suffering too?  You know when you're not sexing them up?

For instance, some patients present with clinical features that resemble an addictive disorder—i.e., continued engagement in the behavior despite physical or psychological consequences, a loss of control, and a preoccupation with the behavior.

You said:
Hmmm...

All I know is when I am not sufficiently sexed I cannot get my life in order. Work slips, personal relationships slip, my house slips... everything gets worse. Since I have only ever been in one serious relationship ever, my entire sex life is promiscuous. How does JB's opinion coincide with my reality?

That is, i.e negative consequences.

Chatter / Re: Constitutional Convention

That would be pretty stupid, seeing as there would be a ton of people who would be against it, same as what happened with Prohibition.

I had to explain to a friend last week that our laws in the US are not based on the bible or Judeo/Christian values. This law here in the OP is what it would be like if our laws were based on Judeo/Christian morals.

Chatter / Constitutional Convention
« Last post by Nick on Yesterday at 08:43:36 PM »
The GOP has been working for years, and drawing near, to having enough governors and state legislatures to call for a constitutional convention.

How many don't think that they would call for the USA to be seen as a Christian nation among many other bad things?

But one doesn't need to have had sex to develop an insatiable apatite for it. So you may be looking for your "fix" without ever having had any. So the drug analogy doesn't quite work.

this is an interesting point.    Being that orgasms don't need a partner, and can happen whilst one is dreaming/asleep, does this qualify as having sex or not?

I would say no. I think a 2nd being is needed.

"Lebanese law currently allows a rapist to be exonerated if he marries his victim"

how biblical (Deuteronomy 22:28-29).  But hopefully it will be ended soon.

So even though the DNA says it's a tree, it's not a tree?  Well who can argue with that logic?

1. Correct.  Just because my blood cells have my DNA, that does not make them me.  Nor does it make them people.

2. Because you addressed only that one, tiny point, am I to take it you agree with the rest of my post?

3. I don't really want to call you a dumbass, but christ on a stick, man, you're not giving me many options with that kind of reply.
