  Individuality is a bulletproof waistcoat, a utilikilt, and a confidant
holster (for maximum concealment) accessorized with one's firearm of
choice. And comfy steeltoed boots with plenty of ankle support and
those killer specialty insoles. also a digitalangel, a good cel, and
emergency rations.

I would like to encourage everyone to get regular doses of sex. While not
a clinical psychologist I do have some background here and sex, even
sex that isn't the greatest, is good for you. Males especially.
Until we have total voluntary control of our hormonal systems (or
are post-corporeal) we must manipulate our bodies to function
at optimum levels. This means getting laid occasionally.
  Males who do not have sex (and do not have close emotional
contact with someone (usually female) are probably not
functioning at the optimum level they could be if their backbrains
were reassured that the urge to procreate was occasionally being
tended to.
  Psychology is far from an exact science (it might be argued it
is far from even being a science, strictly speaking), but the
affective and cognitive effects of abstinence at the highest
levels of human functioning, where subtle value judgements
and high-level abstracting occur frequently, these effects are
not known to be favourable. What info we have suggests the
opposite (though this is far from proven, it merely seems reasonable!)
  Obviously the historical rolemodels of monasticism may or
may not be applicable.. but I'd like to inject a word or three
of caution here.
  Sex is good for you. Have healthy servings occasionally.
Even if 'love' is not involved. It helps male apes keep sane.

(who sounds like a registered dietician discussing the food groups!)
