A bit simplistic, perhaps, as it is not only the act, but the context in
which it takes place which can be important, but in general terms, I
think K is right on the mark with this reply.  It is certainly the
answer I have given to those who have sought my advice re celibacy over
the years.  In general, and for most people, it seems probable that
celibacy is unhealthy.  If there's a problem, then often D.I.Y. is the
short term solution .....
