consider quite an attractive person who has an above average amount of power in terms of getting sex. this person has the normal level of sexual desire. if they had this desire turned off, would they have overall a better/more enjoyable/happier life? why/why not?
do you know of any pills which have the effect of killing sexual desire, without any horrible side effects? so that if you were a straight male and saw a beautiful girl, you just looked at her and felt the same way as you would if you were looking at a humdrum average looking male, with nothing exciting (looks-wise) about them.
Thread took ages to get approved. This is just a post trying to get the thread noticed.
do you think it would give them power over others?
They wouldn't be happier. But they'd be calmer...sexual frustration causes hassle.
It's give guys more power cos they are ruled by their genitalia.
but humans could find other, easier to get things which would probably give them almost equal pleasure/satisfaction: hobbies, alcohol, exercise.
sex causes lots of negatives: worry about STIs, frustration when you're not getting what you want, etc. so why not stop sex and do other things instead? sex is like an addiction to something crappy. it is pretty much addiction. so if you could get off your sex addiction with pills, and then use other things for pleasure, wouldn't you be happier?
i'd say there are plenty of things which you could find which are better than sex, it's just that you're addicted to sex naturally. so why not cut the adddiction, since it's got so many negatives and sex isn't even gthe best thing you coudl be doing with the time?
I am 18, female. I can honestly say I have zero sexual desire. I have never experienced any feelings of that nature for anyone, I recognise people are handsome pretty but have not been physically attracted to anyone. I have never masturbated or wanted to or felt anything of that sort.
My friend, male 18, is very sexual emotional and passionate - much more than normal. It leads him to extacy and to complete and utter suicidal dispair at times.
I think, on balance, I am the happier. When you have never had any sexual desire, you don't miss it because you don't know of it. I enjoy my life very much, in different ways. But I do think that I just have to meet the right person and the time will come.
Yes, I know I'm a freak.
if you're a freak, i'd say you're a freak in a good way. think of all the time you'll have saved etc
they would probably be less antsy/frustrated/fidgety ... but I wouldn't say happier.
To be honest I would expect them to be less happy. I would personally live a life when I can experience the extremes, than one which fluctuates around the middle. I would say that the latter would be more consistently content, while the former has a situation where they can really experience "happiness".
They would probably get more done.
what if there were no silly hypothetical questions?
