Being voluntarily unmarried and/or not engaging in any sexual activities. Reasons to choose to be celibate are often religious, but do not have to be. Similar to abstinence, different people have different definitions of what celibacy entails. For some, it may mean no sexual contact, including masturbation. For others, it may mean no penetration (oral, anal, vaginal).
