    Makes sense.
    I agree with him.
    Sex makes you feel connected to someone and a worthwhile job makes you feel useful. Those are the things that make a life meaningful.

    I was lazy in my reply, but I don't agree with him.

    It's not that clear cut. Happiness is personal realization.

    I think Epicurus had the answer for the most part. Friends, intellectual stimulation, emphasizing the minimization of harm to oneself and others and the absence of suffering (not having sex for a month will constitute hell to one person, and might not bother another one. People have different thresholds when it comes to suffering).

    Sex is quenching a thirst....but there are spiritual/psychological thirsts too. A fanatical catholic won't be thrilled or in psychological need of sex before marriage in the same way someone else would, for example.


    A satisfying job is indeed important, but not for those that don't work. Doing things you like is a broader, more accurate thing to say I guess.



    Doing things you like, that you have someone to share it with (friends), while not harming others.
