Yeah, you've suggested that I'm confused before. I can assure you that I'm not confused, I know exactly what I'm saying. I suggest however, that you do not comprehend what I am saying.
No sexual desire + no sex = no bodies.
If my parents hadn't felt the strong urge to jump into the bed and have gratifying sex, then this body wouldn't be here now typing this message. This body wouldn't exist without my parents indulging their sexual urges.

The main reason both myself and my girlfriend were compatible was because neither of us ever wanted children. We both deliberately chose not to have children. Quite frankly, I didn't want the responsibility of bringing up children, nor surrender my limited time and energy to parenting. I can still desire my girlfriend though, I can find her quite alluring at times, and this may or may not lead to intimacy and sexual gratification.
You see the thing is, I can desire (crave) my partner, and we can have sex, or I can desire (crave) my partner and we can not have sex. It doesn't matter either way, I'm not invested in any particular outcome, I am content no matter what happens.
You see the 'peace' is not in denying any particular urge, the peace comes from not being invested in, or expecting any particular outcome.
I am at peace, because I don't mind what happens. Not minding what happens, puts an end to suffering.
