    • estatic Yes, I do and have been for some time. For me, it has helped me to be clear about what I want in a relationship and in my life. It also helps me to know that I am a desirable woman even if I don’t have sex (BTW, STD’s are NOT an option.frown )

      It is refreshing and most of all, courageous. You’d be surprised at the women doing it with any man just to say they got laid and are treated like booty calls (whatever floats their boat yet I own a yacht!happy ).

    • Not by choice. frown  Not a “practice” exactly, just un unfortunate circumstance of life.

      Dorothy, good for you that it is your choice!

    • I have because I’m not about to die because I was horny and would believe a guy I don’t know too well when he wants to have unprotected sex. Sex that way can kill you or give you a gift that keeps on giving (STDs). It’s made me much more cautious with regards to men. You would be surprised how many disappear when they find out I’m not in need of “maintenance.”

    • I haven’t had a boyfriend since my divorce so no sex.  I feel sad about it sometimes, but I’m okay.  I have gained a lot of weight so am not comfortable with myself.

    • I’ve taken up eating as a replacement for sex.  Somehow I have to change that and use excersise to replace sex.

    • I practice this, but not by choice...but I have to say in my defense that when you are married and not having sex, there is an intimacy issue.

      I have been married for 17 years today, but in the last 9 years, I have had it 8 times and none in the last two years. This is not healthy for anyone....but when you have the choice, all I have to say is, “way to go, girl....”

    • Find a friend or find a new hobby. Let’s pray for the best and replace that with something totally out of your comfort zone.

    • Yes, but it started with not having a choice in it while married, and since the start of the divorce, I haven’t met anyone I’d want to have sex with. I want the intimacy, not just sex!!!

    • I didn’t have the intimacy as well as the NO sex. ;oP   I have moments I doubt having it again, that it’s possible at my age to find a still “functioning” man. But hope wiggles on through the doubts. LOL

    • I also want intimacy and not just sex. I want to like myself when I look in the mirror. I keep hope in my heart that it can still happen for me.
