Andrew Garfield Deprived Himself of Sex for 6 Months for a Role 

Celibacy is the method of not having sexual relations for a prolonged period of duration. 

If someone doesn't engage in sexual relations for a prolonged duration it is unlikely that they will be a risk to their health. 

But, studies show that regular sex may provide certain health benefits, 

such as better immune system function as well as lower stress level 

as well as a reduction in blood pressure and a reduced risk of cardiac arrest. 

Recently, Hollywood actor Andrew Garfield admitted to adopting the celibacy method for six months in the purpose of training for a demanding part. 

Andrew Garfield delivered one of his most memorable performance in the Martin Scorsese film Silence.
