Have you known anyone who made chastity seem like a strange sexual perversion?

Asked by ETpro (34550points) June 5th, 2011

Aldous Huxley definition, “Chastity – the most unnatural of all the sexual perversions.” How much truth is there in his Huxley’s quote? How many defenders of chastity have you known who seemed so focused on everyone else’s chastity that it became a perversion?

I can’t say I have, but I think that it is the same for anyone that defines themselves mainly by their sexual behaviours, whatever they may be.

I know people, mostly Priests and Nuns that try to say that chastity brings them closer to god, I guess because he’s a single parent trying to raise a kid that thinks he’s god, but never met anyone that goes the other way.

I think people that define themselves by their sexual practice need to get a life anyway. Frankly I do many things that would get me arrested in Arkansas but they do not define me. Huxley got it right.
