I feel kind of silly for asking, but here goes: A friend of mine has been celibate for a year and a half and claims that her celibacy has improved her emotional health and sharpened her senses. I originally mocked her to her face for suggesting such a thing (don't stone me), but now I've been thinking about it. I wonder if there could be some substance to her assertions...or maybe her improvement is due to other factors, i.e. growing up, etc.??? Anyone have any experience or reliable reference on the subject?
