Let's imagine, for a moment, that my idol, Carson Ellis, had made the decision to be abstinent. Carson Ellis is an illustrator and artist, and the wife of the lead singer of one of my favorite bands, the Decemberists. The two of them are both really awesome and make really good music and really cool art together. They have a son, but we can imagine, for a minute, that they decided that they didn't want to have sex, that they decided to remain abstinent. I don't really think that would affect me very much.
