When I was probably 16-17 years old, I had a big problem. I very much wanted a woman. But I was a Baptist. But Baptists are not supposed to go to prostitutes. The “way out” was either of the last strength to endure or marry the first one to meet. Now I think it would be better to go to prostitutes than to marry the first woman you meet: either hate your (stupid) wife or divorce, hate yourself for such a choice, etc.
And the solution would be simple: drink some time pills to reduce sexual desire.
But was it possible for a teenager in Russia (especially at that time) to get such pills? This is a “religion”: a man must want women, and even artificially take testosterone. A pill to reduce sexual desire – “heresy.”
In general, medicine sometimes behaves like a real Gestapo.
