Being sexually frustrated is yet another way that the enemy can use to draw believers away from God. Trust that God will provide and in his timing it will come to pass.

As with most things, sexual frustration isn't a matter of bad or good in and of itself... rather, how we deal with it is. The enemy can even use contentment to lead believers away from God!

Also, if marriage can be compared to God's relationship to the Church, what might we make of sexual frustration? A man who longs for a wife (and a woman who longs for a husband) might have stronger insight into how God feels about people who are separated from Him than a coupled person who is metaphorically fat & happy, or the person who distainfuly resigns him or herself to pseudo-indifference (not to be confused with those who are called to remain celibate, of course).

Maybe we don't need sex
In order to "kill time."
We just need the Lord
If you know what I mean.
