That's fine as it is your right to believe as you wish. However, I have a differing opinion.

I think it was CS Lewis that talked about how human beings now are not really capable of understanding how or why heaven will be wonderful. He gave an analogy of small children. Who are told that when they are adults, that they really won't want candy so much. To a small child a world without candy sounds horrible. But a small child also has no concept of sex in the future either. And can't really imagine a world where there's anything better than toys and candy.

In our new bodies, with our minds and hearts renewed in heaven, I think ...somehow... we'll enjoy the experience.
But If you still have a problem with it, just imagine that God can do a miracle to make it so you'll be happy Franc.

And last i checked Jesus promised we'd enjoy it throughout eternity. So, no offense franc, but personally i think i'll just take his word for it instead of your opinion on this one.
