It's old news that I've been a fan and member of #teamcelibacy. In "Love Vs. Lust Pt. 1" from my affirmation EP I spoke a bit about my entanglements with the flesh and how that led to a Do Not Disturb sign below my belt. But now I want to go into the why, the benefits, the (obvious and non-obvious) struggles and the nuances of celibacy. To me it definitely doesn't have to look the same for everyone.
So I snagged my best friend Guerdley (@guerdley)--who's vacationed in the no sex zone for a year--to have a hella candid conversation.
WE GO IN ON:
How celibacy helps compartmentalize feelings, lessen impulses and heighten discernment.
How getting dickmatized... especially to the wrong dick, especially when you are subconsciously hoarding romantic illusions... is very distracting.
How to initiate a conversation about celibacy with a lover who was never thinking about celibacy.
Expiration dates. Is oral sex apart of celibacy? And hella more.
I hope you enjoy and know you'll have some opinions, do share with me! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
