If I watched Grey’s Anatomy more often, I might know the names of the characters. On the show tonight (Thursday, February 22, 2007), I caught a conversation where a female character asked her boyfriend (or at least I assume he was her boyfriend) to go sixty days without sex with anyone. He seemed to balk at first, but eventually agreed.
It does seem harder for us men to go without sex than it is for our female counterparts.
So, my questions for the thread–Is this guy going to make it all sixty days? Can men go so long without sex? Should they? Have you ever done that? And was it a good thing for you?
UPDATE (Friday 02-23 @ 12:15 EST (blog time): I had waited to give my own answer to the question. Yes, I think the guy can make it all 60 days and that it will change him as he will learn to appreciate his girlfriend more, realizing that one can indeed go so long without sex. For when we go so long without, we learn to focus on other aspects our relationships.
While I don’t think people should eliminate sex from their lives, the Jung quote in this post pretty much sums up my views. I think there are times when it is good for us to go without sex. And whether it is sixty days — or six hundred — each individual should figure out for himself what works best for him.
