I always do a face-palm when people say, "Jesus was a man, so OF COURSE he had sex." Then they use that same rationale to explain why priests shouldn't be celibate. Because sexual temptation and desire is part of many people's lives, they don't understand how others can control it.

When media normalizes sexual desire, it's seen as an anomaly when some people aren't governed by it. You recognize a deeper connection that is true union and eternal.
