Continency

Additional Links

Is that moral virtue by which we restrain concupiscence. There is this distinction between, chastity and continence:

Chastity requires no effort, because it may result from constitution; whereas continency appears to be the consequence of a victory gained over ourselves. The term is most usually applied to men; as chastity is to women.

See CHASTITY.
