I agree, minus the sex part.
The Coolidge effect makes it clear how bad sex can be for a relationship.
Your saying the coolidge effect is bad for relationships.
The coolidge effect only happens when you have sex with the same partner,
Therefore, you are saying that you should have sex with multiple partners to prevent the coolidge effect and have a good relationship.
You can't have celibacy in the factor because the coolidge effect is not possible with celibacy,
You can't use the coolidge effect for your argument to promote celibacy
Also, I'm not Dr. House, but many of the links I provided earlier were written by Doctorates. Thats why I provided them (someone didn't read)
Lastly, you cannot have serious relationships in highschool. For one thing, your not even an adult while in high school at all, unless you moved out at 16.
You don't have to worry about bills, food, gas, more bills, tuition, a job and other things. Not only that, but you live with your parents. You don't live alone. If you invite a girl over, guess who else was/is there? Your Parents!
Finally, you still have rebutted one of my main arguments:
Sex is natural for humans.
Not only that, but if you masturbate, then sorry to burst your bubble, but your not really celibate. Masturbation is like sex, only solo (and if a guy, even faster).
Oh, and one more thing, what I meant by the observation of the Coolidge Effect (which as I have said earlier and pointed out is as irrelevant in your argument as two bonobos having sex) being limited is that it was not observed within different cultures, not different races.
And you know how you said that the lack of celibacy is the reason that there is so much divorce?
You just your point in your last point by admitting that I was right on my earlier rebuttal that the reason there is much divorce is because of women's rights; and I quote "divorce...taboo... before 1970's".
I'm sorry, but for the moment, your losing this debate. I've managed to attack all your points, and have shown with logic, data, and rhetoric how your main argument, that the Coolidge Effect is why you should be celibate, is moot and irrelevant as a reason you should remain celibate as it really has nothing to do with celibacy, but with sex itself.
