Maybe that is why holy people in many religions proclaim abstinence - the sexual energy is re-directed into spritual power.
Then I have a lot of spiritual power... being a virgin at 29.
I have given up my sexual experiences, but not because of my will.
On the other hand, I think that charisma is people wanting to be you.
