no, and it means you get to have a lot of your wants.

------------------------------- not so serious answer ------------------------------

Actually, it comes from an old phrase "Privy Ledge". This was where the people with more money or status in the community were allowed to stand when using the Privy, thus keeping their feet clean. Once you had more status people would say you had the Privy Ledge which gradually became the current word privilege or privileged.
