How old are you?
Are you celibate by choice or circumstance?
celibatecaro · 18/04/2019 20:19
I'm 55. It was by circumstance but it is by choice now as I wouldn't change it.

Do you still masturbate or have you no sexual desires?
My DH would like to ask if you find it difficult being celibate? He has asked if you are ever 'tempted' by anything.

I recon this will be me in another 30yrs I've been single 2 years and have no sexual desire at all.

No, I don't 'DIY' - I'd just think of 'you can do it if you B&Q it'
I didn't make a conscious decision really, it just kind of happened as I had different priorities after I became single and I wouldn't want to share my house with anybody. I miss the cuddles and hugs but don't miss the sex - I share my bed with lovely bed linen and a soft snuggly duvet instead.
Recently I have seen a couple of people, one who I am thinking about now, who I find attractive but I won't be acting upon it.

@Shutuptodd Unless it bothers you then it's not an issue TBH. You've only been single for two years though so things can change.

When you were having sex, did you enjoy it?
Sometimes it was good, sometimes I'd lie back and think of Scotland. I don't think that anybody enjoys it all the time do they.
