Sexual Abstinence for Adults

Goalto help adults explore and understand the reasons, benefits and challenges of sexual abstinence and to assist them in creating a strategy to say no to sex

Rationale

Many adults find that abstaining from sexual activity, is beneficial to their well-being. There may be physical reasons to abstain, for example, a health condition or disability may make sexual activity risky. Some persons may want to practice celibacy or sexual abstinence for religious or spiritual reasons. Yet others still may be grappling with relationships issues, or personal development challenges and taking sex out of the equation, gives more clarity to decision-making processes.
