Can a person at his adult hood (age 18-25) can control his sexual feelings.
If yes then how?

I think we do have that control, that's why the incidences of rape are so(relatively) low.

THINK AGAIN!

THINK AGAIN! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Rape is the most under-reported crime in the United States.
Source: Federal Bureau of Investigations. Uniform Crime Report, 1990

Only 16 percent of rapes are ever reported to the police.
Source: National Victim Center and Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Rape in America: A Report to the Nation, 1992

One reported forcible rape (penetration of a female forcibly and against her will) or attempted rape takes place nearly every five minutes in the United States. This statistic does not included unreported rapes or other sexual assaults, including assaults against men or many children (boys, or girls sexually assaulted but not raped).
Source: Federal Bureau of Investigations. Crime in the United States. 2001

In 2001, there were 248,250 rapes and sexual assaults in the United States reported to law enforcement.
Source: U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Statistics, Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics, 2002

Seventy-five percent of women raped are between the ages of 15 and 21. The average age is 18.
Source: National Victim Center and Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Rape in America: A Report to the Nation, 1992

The National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), conducted by the US Department of Justice, identified 333,000 incidences of rape and sexual assault in 1998. This includes unreported rapes (equaling three times the reported number).
Source: U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Statistics, Criminal Victimization in 1998... 1998

In 1997, 0.3% of women and 0.1% of men surveyed said they had experienced a completed or attempted rape in the previous 12 months. These estimates equate to approximately 302,100 women and 92,700 men who are forcibly raped each year in the United States.
Source: National Institute of Justice and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Prevalence, Incidence, and Consequences of Violence Against Women: Findings from the National Violence Against Women Survey, 1997

80% of all sexual assaults are committed by an acquaintance of the victim.
Source: National Victim Center and Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Rape in America: A Report to the Nation, 1992

One in four sexual assaults takes place in the victim's home, making it the most common place for an assault to take place. One in six takes place in or near a relative's or friend's home; one in five on the street; one in six in a parking garage or commercial building. Three out of five sexual assaults occur at night, with the largest proportion occurring between 6:00 pm and midnight.
Source: Crime and Crime Prevention Statistics

10 to 14 percent of all married women and at least 40 percent of battered wives in the US have been raped by their husbands.

I think that is very sad about all the rape. But I don't think this is due to normal sexual desires. Maybe other psychological issues?

@asutoshsahu:
If you want to control sexual desire, try having healthy sex life, with bf/gf to experience regular sexual outlet. Or masturbation. I think to try to repress sexual desire can make it come out in ways that are unhealthy or harmful.
The hand of God may well be all around us, but it is not, nor can it be, the task of science to dust for fingerprints.

I disagree. I find masturbation only makes me a more lustful person and thus feeds sexual desires rather than controls them. That's why I don't do it anymore.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

@Sabrina

Which is why I said relatively low. If people had absolutely no control over their sex drives, rape would be much much more prevalent. Think how many times wild animals corpulate a day...

This is in your case and everyone is different. In majority of case though it is considered medically normal, healthy and a relief of sexual tension. Here is a good article on it.

I'd rather go blind than have a child out of wedlock and possibly ruin his life and the life of my girlfriend. It's probably harder to practice abstinence with a girlfriend. Maybe if she wasn't beautiful, that would work :)
