I think death is a good example of a major difference between an anorexic who abstains from food and a priest who abstains from sex. Children don't have sex, and neither do many of the elderly - it is largely a hormonally driven need. Those who aren't sexually active have reduced levels of these hormones, and thus - probably aren't as frustrated by celibacy as one who has been regularly sexually active. Just thought I'd sprinkle a few facts into your statement.
