I haven't had sex in 7 years.... Yep...you read it right. I haven't had sex in seven years!!! For most Filipinos this might be not too hard to believe, since the culture dictates it. More so because I don't live in the metropolis where there are too many temptations. I live on the northern part of the country thats very provincial. When you're single woman and not married and have three kids, you find it harder to do things like having sex with somebody you like. Society is cruel. Moral values specially in provincial areas are strong. It's like volunteering to have yourself burned to death at the stakes. I know, I know, do it because it makes you happy. I've heard that before, but I came to a realization that I haven't actually done it because I'm still not ready. Sounds crazy isn't it? 33 year old single mother, warm, caring, and passionate, successful.... hmmmm...."What is wrong with you?!"
There was once a very popular senator in our country, his name was Juan Flavier, he became really famous because of his interesting promotions of birth control methods in the Philippines, he had one tag line out of the hundreds he made..... ABCs of birth control. I would like to apply that and use it for this blog modifying it a little bit... the ABCs of CELIBACY.

A-Abstain. I do a lot of that. I've actually been doing it for seven years... abstaining. It is kind of hard to do at times. But I get this feeling, okay you like the guy, he likes you. You're getting there and you just feel it isn't just right. Would you still go on? I don't. Sex is a wonderful act. It's a celebration of love between two people. I would rather be passionate with someone who I feel strongly for, than ACT like I was enjoying it just because I needed it.

B- Be busy. Life isn't just about satisfying your carnal needs. There's a whole lot of things to do. Be friends with everyone. Be smart! Just because you're getting this really, warm fuzzy feeling between your legs, you don't have jump in to bed with the first guy that comes your way.

C-Constantly remind yourself what you really want. What's in your heart. Who's in your heart. (I added a WHO because I do have someone special. Its not just the right time for both of us though.) Call it old fashioned, but that's what I want for now.
Those are my ABC's to Celibacy. I don't plan on being celibate my whole life though.

One day, when the right time comes. I will enjoy it. I will do it with all the pent up passion, love and desire that has been brewing for the past years.
