if you had to sacrifice one of them in order to live, which would it be? would you rather never listen to music again, or resign yourself to a life of celibacy?

At my age very often I find myself listening to music while the wife is asleep. So I guess I've already answered that question. :)

Heh, yeah I bet marital status would have a lot to do with it. Right now I'm single, so ahem screw music.

Young Man: "I can't wait to get married, I'm gonna get laid every night!"

Hmmm ... you can still playing with yourself.

So the real question is life without sex or without girlfriend, which is obviously more than just sex.

It boils down to which activity I spend more time with, in which case music is the clear winner.

Guys over 40 immediately if silently ask themselves the question. It may take them 20 minutes to laugh at the absurdity of it. They may not laugh at all.

'Nother Old Joke: 40-year-old businessman walks through the front door of his McMansion, drops his laptop bag and shrugs off his suit jacket.
(Vacantly, he calls out) Businessman: Honey, I'm home. What's for dinner?
His frustrated 40-year-old lady-luncher wife leaps out from behind their Italian silk-upholstered sofa. Presenting herself, she dramatically whips open the full mink he bought her for their fifth anniversary and reveals herself to be otherwise attired in heels, stockings, lingerie, and pearls.
(Delightedly she proclaims) Housewife: Super-Sex!!!
(Heavy-lidded with mid-life angst, he questions in a monotone) Businessman: What kind of soup?

how about this.. no more, to quote John Donne, "little deaths." that is, all emissions or contractions of a sexual nature are expressly prohibited.

your blood, however, may still comingle with your beloved's within the belly of a flea.

Would have to be sex...
Not that it is not important, cause it certainly is. But I am quite sure I can cope without sex easier than without music. Especially since it occupy a much larger share of my time.

Basic biological drive, or music... I'll take sex over music anytime.

--But in this flea we more than married be! It our marriage bed, and marriage temple is! It's a 50-year mortgage on a three-bedroom bungalow with an adorable but slobbery chocolate lab and an ironclad pre-nup!

I'll take the Kosher chicken soup instead, please.
