    Well how long has it been? I am going on 9 months now, and its kinda rough. I dont really sleep around for fear of diseases, so i guess i'll play the waiting game for now.

    18 years by choice. I sleep easy, not having to worry about a pregnant girlfriend, diseases, ect. Call me old fashioned but I plan on waiting till I marry. I am human so of course I want to, but I resist.
  12. So far it's been about 16 years. I don't that that will end any time soon.

    I respect that, for the record.
  14. It's been 6 years. I've been with the same girl for 4 years and i wholeheartedly respect her decision to wait till marriage. The 2 years prior to that i was touring heavily and i had no girlfriend. I have a stern stance against the whole 'band slut' mentality.

    Honestly it IS a bummer... but i know the good outweighs the bad, it allows a strong relationship based on things besides sex. FWIW, her nor I are religious at all, we always get asked that and it tends to shock people when they find out we're celibate w/o some sort of doctrine as an excuse. I think the idea of kids terrifies us... at least for now while we're so busy with school.

    Two years. Never again. I'll rent a hooker next dry spell if need be.

    Not that I have always thought this way, but I find purposeful abstinence a bit silly. Sex is quite similar to breathing and eating really. Perfectly natural. You can enjoy the pleasures of life without falling into a big greasy pit of hedonism. Life is already short and dumb enough as it is, why put more obstacles in place?
