For some individuals, sexual health is a cricial component of their mental health. There are hormones released during sexual activity that may have healing effects on the brain. For myself, I simply sleep better if I am capable.

You know, you make some important points there -- I know we disagree on some medical topics, but Freud wasn't all wrong.


I don't know where I inherited my ideology (other than my OCD and perhaps the lack of overt sexuality of my folks, who I don't blame one way or the other, its just how some people express themselves) that sex was something to do it, get it (whatever act) done and over with and then obsess about how wrong it was.


Its a natural part of human society, and despite repression by religion in many parts of the world, I bet if you took an anonymous survey, most all of the world has masturbated at least once in their life.


So break out the videos and the magazines (whatever sexuality you are) and enjoy yourself. It is a release from anxiety, or it certainly can be if you get past your own feelings of guilt.
