From a Catholic point of view would seeking to reduce my libido be disobeying God?
I am a 26 year old man who has never had any type of romantic relationship with a women due to being very physically unattractive.
I am obviously still a Virgin, but have never been on one date or even kissed a woman.
. . .
Additionally, I have a constant jealously for all those fortunate enough to be born physically attractive.
Seeing good looking couples in church makes me furious with envy and later numb with sadness…I ENVY the man who has the privilege of being intimate with a beautiful woman with the blessing of God through marriage.
I truly feel it is not fair that he gets to experience romantic intimacy simply because he was lucky enough to be born good looking…He did not work hard to earn such a privilege…he was simply born into it.
. . . .
I am close to my Mom, and have discussed this with her. She claims this would be a sin.
I do not understand why it would be, as I am simply trying to get relief from these sinful desires.
My questions are;
–Is eliminating my sexual desires through medicinal methods a sin?
–If so why?
Thank you very much.
