Yes exactly! I've always said true free agency is being able to choose what you want to want rather than having the hot dog (orgasmic sensation) hard wired to something like sex. I want to cut these agency destroying puppet strings that evolution has wired me to want and completely re string them according to my will. Emagine how much paper work would get done if we could wire ourselves so that it was better than orgasmic to get it done!... ;)
