scientist claim they have found a way to prolong the human lifespan for up to 500 years . the only down side is sexual organs must be removed in order for this to work.
so the question is , would any of you want to live so long w/o sex?


talk amongst yourselves.

i wouldn't. i hardly want to live right now, and im not very old what so ever. plus, living to be 500, that would mean that you aquire a lot of knowladge right? and wouldn't you probably love to pass that onto the next generation? preferably your own? i guess you could have a child, and THEN have the operation that enables you to live that seemingly never ending amount of time, but would there be a way to have it reversed if you decide you want another kid? i don't think it would be right to live that long, its not natural. what would happen to your memory? your body? would there be any extreme side effects that would change your life even more? how many people would really do that? live that long, and have to tell people about it. get attached to people, and see them die. so much trama would go on, can our minds handle it? i doubt it. seeing that much would surely leave some shadows and scares behind.
then again, there would be the happy memories, the good times to remember. if you even can remember that far back. there would be more time to prefect the art of living, learn new skills, teach more people, all in all accomplish more. but i still say its not worth it. what would you do without sex?

Actually, they tampered with the "clock" in an earthworm that extended it's lifecycle to the equivalent of 500 human years. I guess the "clock" in earthworms is similar to the ones in humans, and yes the sexual organs are removed. It's nowhere near applicable in humans because tho the clocks are similar...well it's a worm.

Hypothetically speaking, yes, I think I would like to live for 500 years. I hate the idea of missing anything and 500 years would give me time to see and experience so much, not to mention watch as things change over 500 years. I think it would be fascinating. 500 years without sex? Maybe. Just maybe. it woud depend on a lot of things. Would I be satisfied with just touching, hugging, kissing someone I'm in love with or would I always yearn for something I could never have? Would it be worth it to have that constant yearning and be able to do nothing about it? Maybe it would. Especially if I found someone who touched me deeply 300 years after I would have died.

*thinking about it some more* good topic ariadne...

500 years without sex?
...man...

You're talking to a once-a-day guy... I don't know if I could handle that...
But if I had no sexual desire, then I guess I'd go for it. It'd be different, but the benefits of living longer would be worth it.

But then I don't even know if I'd -want- to live 500 years... I mean, this place is pretty crappy, and I've only lived 18 years in it... That's a drop in the bucket compared to 500 years...

But then again, after 300 or so years of study, maybe I would get a breakthrough and get Dragonball Z-style powers... Then it'd be cool... I'd love to fly through the air and blow stuff up with my chi/ki energy...

But then again, it might just be 65 good years, followed by 435 years of being stuck in a retirement home... And to think I gave up sex for it...

OH and one more thing...I don't think it's the FUN stuff they remove, just the reproductive parts that produce the hormones and all that. So you'd still get to have sex, but we'd all be 500+ years old, and seriously androgenous, so ladies the bick isn't just for your legs anymore, and gents, start making appts at your local manicurist.
I would WANNA live that long, I just don't think I'd SURVIVE. Just think, I'm livin an extra 500 years, everyone ELSE is livin an extra 500 years....someone'd get pretty sick of me pretty fast, I'm sure, and take matters into their own hands.
If I did manage to skim by for that long, I'd do it, no question. Of course I'd have to wait even longer to die and skip out on all my credit card debts, but just think of the fun I could have in the meantime.

There's a several ways to look at it. I can live 500 years and get more knowledge, experience more of life, and everything like that. However, sometimes it can be a pain since you end up having many loved ones die...assuming you're the only one who is 500. If not humans, maybe animals that you grow attached to.

of course scientists cannot be sure how this type of experiment would effect humans. i just thought it was interesting. about the sex part i am not sure exactly what this entails for the guys. women have hysterectomies all the time but receive hormone replacement. from what i understand they have to eliminate all reproductive hormones in order for this to work , if this were really possible and everyone went through with it life would be totally different. we may all become vulcans.

I can't help but think of Eos and Tithonus...sure you would live, but what would the quality of life be?
Besides, if I get bored now, what the hell am I going to be doing for 500 years?

I would be up for it. Who knows? In a 100 hundreds they may have a way for my to live to a 1000, can give me back sexual organs, and demand I have lots of sex.

I think it'd be cool as hell to live for 500 years in one life.

I don't think I ever fully educated myself about how the penis functions regarding hormones. I mean females don't have to have their ovaries in order for the vagina and their clitoris to work as usual, but once a man's grown does his penis work without having his testes?

God but could you IMAGINE the age of RETIREMENT?! I'm sorry, but I'd rather live 70-80 years and work for 50 of them than live to be 500 and work 400 of them.
It'd be pointless, you see, because I'd kill myself.

I think the idea would be to make a fortune during the first 100 years so you could live well for the next 400. What would you do with 400 years of free time? Since we're thinking hypothetically and all...

as long as it was only the overies and the woumb that was removed I'd be all up for it. but if my hole was closed up and I had no clit.. then HELL NO... I like sex a bit too much

You wouldn't happen to have a link to the story, would you?

I think it might be interesting to live for 500 years. But then there's always the possibility that you'd trade your fun bits only to have the world get hit by a meteor or something 10 years later. And after a while, statistics would start to catch up and any number of accidents could befall you. While I find sex somewhat dull lately, I don't think I'd want to write it off just yet on the off chance to amass 500 years' worth of knowledge.

For some reason I am now singing "Princes of the Universe" by Queen softly to myself...

Dude, I would destroy a large nation to live for 500 years, but it would be largely for the purposes of having sex and watching my enemies die of old age. I'd take lots of sex and death at 35 before I would take the normal sex and death at 80. I would qualify that and tell you much more detail than you wanted to know by saying that my "sex organs" are not the parts of my body that I tend to use most during sexual encounters, but that would get us nowhere.

Depends on how I aged - I wouldn't want to spend 500 years getting older and older. I wouldn't be ABLE to have sex by the end cause I'd be too frail and weak to move. Getting old has to be my biggest fear anyway because I really don't want to have to deal with going blind / deaf / weak, but even more scary than that is the thought of going senile. Death would be a laugh cojmpared to that. So if the 500 years was spent as a demented old lady... then no thank you.

OH you'd age slowly, don't worry, because slowing down the biological clock and increasing your life span would coincide with slowing aging in general. The reason we age is that we just wear out, and we wear out because our genes are programmed to split and reproduce so many times during our life. We age because this process slows down, genes don't split and become new genes quick enough to repair damage and wear and tear on the stuff that makes us up. The genes responsible for cleaning up our systems aren't reproducing quick enough, allowing more free radicals to inflict damage, more gunk to build up in our arteries, and don't absorb enough of the right stuff to keep our metabolisms high and our skin stretchy. When they "slow down the clock" they are slowing down the decay of genes that determine our lifecycle.

I think....


So in other words you won't end up looking like a misused muppet

i *shock of shcks* agree with betty... it is the rest of life... I mean sex is great... but frankly my quality of life is not based on how often I get my dick wet...

the question, truly, should be... is it worth living that long as something unnatural?

*checking the current temp of hell*
dude....

anyhow, moving on from that earthstopping moment curtesy of feral agreeing with me *gasp*...to the "unnatural" part of it.

TECHNICALLY.....everything is natural in the grand scope of things. Each of our technological or biological advances are simply the natural course of a large brain. Tools may have seemed unnatural at first, but look how far we got with those.
Long ago evolution meant BIOLOGICAL evolution, ie: you mutated over several generations to better fit your enviroment and give you a better whack at survival.
Chances are since humans no longer have to physically adapt to our enviroment (we adapt our enviroment to fit US) we will no longer have the need to physically "evolve" as we have since we first took a stroll out of the trees. It seems that our path in "evolution" now lies in technology and in our brains, and what we can do with both to prolong our survival and make a more comfortable enviroment.
Drugs, medicines, contact lenses, fingernail polish, shampoo, complex surgeries, the internet, can ALL be called "unnatural", but all in all it IS all natural, both in the physical sense and "ethical" sense.

Some might call it "playing god" or "brutalizing the natural order" or whatever, but so is abortion, chemotherapy, laser vision correction, hair dye, airplanes.
"if man was meant to fly he'd have given us wings"~ very popular when the wright brothers were attempting an "absurd" experiment. Now it's so common we don't even THINK about it. Maybe someday we'll be referred to as superstitious dullards and naysayers for. Maybe I'll get to see it, if they can pull their heads out of their butts, move on from worms and GET ME MY MAGIC PILL.
