I can understand where you're coming from. Before I had my hysterectomy, I had a really high sex drive for a female. Too much of my time was spent in pursuit of this, and, when I was single, too much time was wasted with men that were not good for my life but satisfied that one basic need.

It was like being on a drug that constantly goaded me to copulate. I never had any complaints from husbands or boyfriends, but it took way too much of my time and mental energy.

After my total hysterectomy, that all stopped cold. It was as if I stopped taking a drug (and hormones are just like drugs), and suddenly I could think clearly for the first time since pre-puberty. I looked back and realized how much time I wasted while I was in college, and how much farther I could have gone in life had I not had "the itch". Don't get me wrong, it was a wild and fun ride, but I have nothing to show for it now except for some crazy memories that still make me blush.

Now sex is a mental diversion. If I decide to engage and enjoy it, I do so. Otherwise, it is completely out of my mind and there is something rather freeing about that.

If you want a pill to kill sexual desire, any SSRI at higher doses will do the trick nicely.

You are thinking too much...

No, I just honestly find it inconvenient and annoying. That's all.

People would still have children, but they would do so as the result of rational planning, not blind lust. Does anyone else feel the way I do?


I feel where you're coming from, but you just can't have it both ways - even in the human part of the animal kingdom. We either live according to our biology, or we ascend ourselves right out of production.

Personally, the latter doesn't scare me one bit...
Human existence (for all our "accomplishments") still remains the single biggest danger on the planet.

I would. I consider sexuality to be perhaps the biggest time-and-energy waster on planet earth. Imagine how much people could accomplish if their energy was not wasted on such stupid pursuits.

Sexuality is the cause of endless conflicts, sorrow, depression, broken hearts, anger, confusion, and so on. It would be best if humanity eventually learned to remove sexual appetite from the species, through genetic engineering, say, or through pills or other medical means. People would still have children, but they would do so as the result of rational planning, not blind lust.

Does anyone else feel the way I do?

This post is crazy. You say sex is a waist of time and then recommend genetic engineering. AKA eugenics... But growing babies would be a waist of time, energy and resources because you could just have sex. You say its the biggest energy waster on the planet, ha... It motivates people, it gives people love. Have you ever had sex for more then 6hrs and wondered where the hell all that energy came from?

You frighten me. Seriously.

Sex is one of the very few things that make life on this miserable planet worth living.


You only think that because of the desire within you. It's like a person with an itch being asked if they would like to never have to scratch that itch again. If the person has always had the itch, the possibility of not being able to scratch it is terrifying, but if the itch itself is removed, it becomes a moot point.


No we think that because it fells good. Its not uncomfortable like a itch. Are you a alien? Maybe you have just never had sex. Sex is much more then a orgasm, its 2 body's pulsating at the same frequency connecting threw timing. Its passion, its love. You might as well make the world a closed society where human beings are separated from nature, all where the exact same clothes and are told what jobs they are going to work. With out sex most of this would not be hear. Their would be no drive.

You don't need to invent a pill we already have Bromide.

There is no need to take any pills, you should be able to control yourself.

No offence, but if you feel the need for something like this, it strikes me as a sign that something is wrong.

I am not a sex fiend but it is part of life. God made us this way for a reason.

Have you ever had sex? Had a relationship?

Saying sex is like "an itch" and is annoying and bothersome...


You have some issues I think.

Scratch a leftist and you will find a prude. This is where the American puritanical urge ended up. The most churlish, humorless, and asexual people out there are usually hard-core leftists. These are the same people who get hysterical about gender and sexaulity if you happen to use the wrong politically incorrect term.

The hard left in the contemporary Western world is the hair-catch for the same types of people who would have been running witch-hunts in Salem 200 years ago.

Awesome, thanks for that




Whatever though... I disagree but not really the thread for it.

A prude, much like an asshole, can be found anywhere and amongst any group of people... be they left, right, centre, blue, green, religious, non religious.

All of it.

I understand completely. Ever heard of Eunuch's peace? It would be nice to be able to take a pill and keep a clear head to get important tasks done. I often wonder how we achieved anything in this world with such an awesome distraction. If there was a pill that had this effect and it was safe and non permanent - I would gladly take it on occasion.

It doesn't sound very appealing.
I guess becoming "asexual" like that would have to change something in the brain, and it's different to being celibate or a eunuch.

But maybe there is a point in that one could use the periods one would devote to thoughts of sex or abstinence more productively, if one could forgo desire completely.

It would surely broaden any encounters with Christian fundamentalists.
If I became asexual and they quoted anti-gay Bible verses at me, I'd just tell them: "I'm asexual now, so those verses no longer apply to me, so you can now recite me all the other verses in the Bible".

Sexless and Godless?? Communist?? haha

oh I see it now... You have issues with this world. Some people believe in god I am one of those... Of course I found god on my own through science, but I am sure it is beneath you, to find out where it is exactly that you fit in.
Of course you could talk to people who believe in god, and look at their other points. Maybe you shouldn't ask questions you "know" the answer to??

It is why you skipped my post. I am sorry.




Learn to meditate. You can get rid of all urges and suffering through mind control. Look up Buddhism...


Oh shoot my post is too long, now no one can see it...
