Mark Silveira - The Folly of Sex

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


This letter was in response to my article “Satanism- The Religion of Promiscuous Sex and Porn” in which I lament the time
and energy wasted in pursuit of sex. 

Mark Silveira wrote to tell me not to beat myself up. 
Sexual desire is a burden for all men and women. 
Don’t put all the blame on Satan!
God made our sex drives too strong. 

by Mark Silveira

I agree with Socrates! I’m just 2 years younger than you. 

When I was 13, I was 5’9″ and shaving; my Mom had to buy me a razor. And I had more Jizzum than Brains! I was chomping at the bit for sex. 

Don’t feel too guilty Henry, it was nature, and nothing else. A Playboy magazine just quenched what was there, no matter what! All the Cultural Marxism came later and it was like throwing gas on the fire. In the old days, people married so they could have SEX! Imagine how Horny they must’ve been!

I had my first sexual relationship in 10th grade. We had plenty of sex. In 11th grade I had a new girlfriend (the old one moved) and we had sex until graduation. By then, I’d had intercourse probably 600 times. I could ejaculate 5 times a day! I used to masturbate BEFORE I rode my bicycle 8 miles uphill to my girlfriend’s house for sex! Otherwise I might’ve experience premature ejaculation!  I’m serious. It was California in the late 60′s. I graduated in June of ’70.

Post graduation was a blurring mass of women. By then it occurred to me that I’d been chosen by all my lovers; it wasn’t that I was such a slick conqueror of women; I was 6’1″, 200 pounds, very athletic, hairy, and pretty good looking, I guess. The women usually chose me, and when I did go after a chick, often it wasn’t hard to bed her. Let me tell you; women are at least as horny as men, if not more! Once I figured that out, it only became easier. And remember, it was between Birth Control & AIDS! From 1970 to 1980, at least. That was a 10 year sexual free for all. The Human Mammal is a very sexual animal! 

I didn’t marry until I was 30. By then (finally) I thought I was ready to settle down. Our relationship wasn’t just sex, although we had a strong sexual attraction – a requirement, I believe, for a successful marriage. Let’s face it; regardless of how you cipher it, sex is the primary bond between a man & a woman. God made it that way to ensure procreation. And boy, did he succeed! 

My marriage was probably better than most and we were mates for 20 years. But, she was postmenopausal, without hormone therapy, by the age of 45, while I was still pole-vaulting out of bed every morning! Certainly I’d slowed down, but Horniness still had its say. Sexual desire for her had disappeared. She had become oblivious to it, and didn’t seem to notice I hadn’t. But I was never one to pound a square peg through a round hole; I was used to the woman signalling she wanted sex, otherwise, I’d never push it. I wasn’t into it if she wasn’t.

Then I lost her to cancer in January of ’99. I cried every day for a year. Not for my loss, but for hers! And she suffered. During her sickness, she was stoic and always exuded a positive attitude, which was all for my benefit. She knew she was dying, but never acted like she wouldn’t beat it. We were soulmates. Then I was alone. I knew I’d never be able to replace her, but I never came close to finding another soulmate. I never wanted to marry any of the women I was with before her. At 30, I knew she was the one.

After more than a year, I began dating. It was nothing like before, but I had a few sexual relationships. 

By 50, or shortly after, I began to enter Andropause. I think my pecker wore out!

And what a Liberation that was!! It was the first time sex didn’t obscure my vision or retard my interests in other things. Not needing sex opened up a new world. Since then I’ve written three novels of around 250,000 words total, and published them on Amazon. I receive a $2.99 royalty for each sale; keeps me in cat food, at least! Just waiting for a film producer to discover them. One probably will – years after I’m dead, like with Philip Dick, the Science Fiction writer and others. Unless they find out I’m an “anti-Semite”!

These days I wonder how productive I might’ve been had I been born in Andropause. High Testosterone can be a big liability. It can endanger its human receptacle. It causes myopia, if nothing else. High Testerone put many men in prison – or the grave!

So Henry, everything you say is true, but like I said, don’t feel too guilty, it was natural. There was absolutely nothing you could do about it but eat salt-peter for dinner every night! And you couldn’t be expected to figure it out back then. If your Testerone level was still high, you may not have ever figured it out! 

Part of it is God’s fault too! It ain’t just Satan!
