Fraternity Guidelines

This is a guy's only forum. No girls allowed. Male bonding time.

In here we can leave the seat up, drink from the carton and talk about manly things without fear of the ladies butting in. You know how they can be.

But remember, always play by the rules: here

Was it easier to be celibate during biblical times due to diet?

    I'm honestly sorry for those people. I know I'm fat but I do think it isn't that hard to lose weight.
    Perhaps it's because I live in a different culture compared to you all.

    As far as I know, libido can be affected by diet (lack of testosterone in men).
    My question above is because the people of the biblical world had a different diet than most of us (they were mostly vegetarian and eating meat a couple times for the year) and perhaps, less of a sex drive. Thoughts?
    Interesting question. We do know that sexual immorality is as old as the hills. In New Testament times it wasn't hard to go to a temple for priestess prostitution...and even believe you were pleasing a god by doing so.

    One thing for sure though...today it has become easier than ever to be sexually immoral. It's just a mouse click away.

    I think eating healthy and learning self control there, can go a long way in self control in other areas as well
