“Basically, I’ve been thinking of taking a break from everything sexual. I am turning 21 in May, and have been sexually active since I was 16. I haven’t had as many sexual partners as my friends have, but I wouldn’t say I’m green either. I have a very high sex drive, though most often I deal with it by masturbating and not by sleeping around as I don’t personally like casual sex and I do not feel I am in a place in my life where a relationship would be a good idea. Lately, I’ve been thinking of making a promise to myself to go one whole year without sex. I plan to include sex in all it’s forms… including oral, handies and masturbation.
I’ve been struggling with my sexuality for a long, long time. I think I’m gay, but I still feel very lost for a number of reasons that I don’t need to bore you with. I have been with both men and women, so I feel like I’ve done what experimenting I need to do. I feel like I just need to take a step back from it all for a while. I also want to do this for a sense of accomplishment for myself, and to release myself from the “grasp of my sexual desires”.
So…anyway, I just wanted to know what you all think of this idea. Do you think it would be productive? Do you think I should go for it? Or do you think it would be counter productive or otherwise a bad idea?”
