Too true.  Nevertheless, the temporary need for celibacy comes
to just about everyone at some point in their Path and when it
does, it shouldn't be forced.  Personally, I don't think it matters
much if one is celibate or not.  Its all in how one looks at it.
I suspect celibacy is a phase that Candiates go through, and
sooner or later will be outgrown.  What I mean here is that
it comes naturally with the feeling of impurty and the need
for purification.  Once that phase has been gotten through,
it is no longer necessary.
