More power to her! It is nice t see someone decide not to be a slave, if only to herself.

Congrats! If only our society could see how beneficial abstinence is - in so many ways.

Scientific studies have shown that human sexuality operates on a sliding scale between completely asexual and total nymphomania (paraphrasing, of course). This person seems to exist somewhere closer to the asexual end. That's fine. And I admire her for what seems like a wonderful journey of self-discovery. BUT, there is no reason to apply her writings to general society. Everyone's sexuality is different, so there's no need to take any of this out of context.

Abstinence makes the heart grow fonder. Just takes some people longer than others.

I read it and wondered two things: 1) why did I read it 2) why did she write it? This seems a little personal to me, better to keep it to herself.

Everyone has a right to his or her own body. No one should be pressured into or out of sex. The end.
