I am attractive, healthy and single and in my early twenties, but my partner of six months is suggesting we give up sex for Lent. Do I find someone else? I think maybe we should abstain? Please help.
Abstinence is something I wouldn’t suggest,
Could you last forty days without being caressed?
That only leads to a slippery slope,
Don’t let yourself be ruled by a partnerless Pope.
Get the cookie dough out of your beautiful eyes,
That way for certain madness lies;
Contrived self denial is like a leaky tin can,
Serving no purpose for woman nor man.
Try greeting your urges with yesses not noes,
Dispense with propriety and with it your woes;
God’s gift to you is the bloom of youth,
It’s a sin to reject it; there lies the Truth.
I hope these words help you decide;
Now let your hormones be your guide.
