And, all these traits are apparent or further developed in anyone choosing to be sex free in today’s world.” The idea that a woman may abstain from sex may not seem very revolutionary, but, refreshingly, Matthews begins her discussion by appealing to men and assuring them that, despite the many sexually-charged messages directed at them in the media, a voluntary sex sabbatical is both possible and pleasurable for them, too.In addition to citing examples, such as professional athletes, who may voluntarily refrain from sex in preparation for a major contest, the author cites examples when any man may choose to abstain.The data are from our 2012 National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior and have just been published online in the Journal of Sexual Medicine (infographic below thanks to David Orr).Sponsored Products are advertisements for products sold by merchants on A quick, easy and enjoyable read, offers an honest and unpretentious discussion of an increasingly popular relationship topic.
