Twenty-three-year-old Damian is in his distress over his religion. He feels like he’s lost touch with God because he can’t find a woman to be with and therefore he can’t find love. He wants to wait until he’s married to have sex, but women don’t seem to understand this need and he feels like he wants sex so badly he could burst. Should he wait until he’s married to have sex or give up his beliefs and give in to his urges?
Damian, I’ve got to tell you, you’ve brought up a touchy subject. They say that in a party-setting there are two things you never talk about — politics and religion. But, we’re going to touch upon it right now.
I’m going to explain to you what’s going on in your head from a urologist’s perspective. You can’t help what’s going on up there. Your hormones are raging. You can’t stop thinking about sex because of your hormones. Your testosterone is elevated. It’s a biological activity to have sex and your body is prepared for it and wants it.
So, what do you do when you make the conscious decision to not give into what your body naturally wants? Do you self-stimulate all the time? I’m not here to tell you to have sex or not to have sex, I’m just here to tell you that it’s a normal part of being human.
We’re not discussing religion. We’re discussing science. It’s up to you to decide whether your religion is doing the right thing for you. Religion is a big deal. It’s all about rules and regulations and rituals. It’s all about what not to do.
The bottom line is, you need to decide what your religion is. You need to know what you believe. In this country, you can believe whatever you want to believe. But, it seems like everyone has a different god up there. Some people give up shrimp and some people give up sex. You need to figure out what your religion is worth giving up.
