Superb Opinion

  • Absolutely, a relationship can survive without much sex, and it's important to understand that intimacy is much more than just physical closeness. Every relationship has its own dynamics.

    For some couples, especially as they navigate through different life stages or face challenges like stress, health issues, or hormonal changes, the frequency of sex may decrease. For this kind of couples, sharing thoughts and listening the partner can deepen their bond beyond the physical.

    If both of the partners are in the same page, then I dont see a problem. Partners can support each other in other ways like being respectful, intimacy and care for each other.

    • Yes, ma'am, I agree. I just started following you and I'd like to invite you to follow me as well if that's alright. Thank you very much.

    • Yes you are right i have had a girlfriend even with my impotence

  • I think for both your sakes, you should discuss this matter together, and find ways to overcome this challange. I strongly believe sex is important in a relationship because its scientifically proven that there are so many benefits to it both in your personal life but also for the relationship. For instance, it increases your level of commitment and emotional connection with the other person. Sex can boost self-esteem and reduce feelings of insecurity, leading to more positive perceptions of ourselves. The brain releases chemicals during sex, including endorphins, which decrease irritability and feelings of depression. Other hormones helps foster a sense of calmness and contentment and lowers blood pressure. It can also be seen as a form of exercise and can assist in toning your body tone.

    Some can survive with the lack of it but it comes with side affects such as being more on edge. Getting loud and upset over smaller things quickly. Stress levels increases, weight gain etc.

  • Assolutamente no!

    Non starei mai con una donna che mi fa mancare il sesso, chiuderei subito la relazione, per me è importante essere soddisfatto su tutti i punti di vista.

    La mia fidanzata deve obbligatoriamente soddisfare tutti i miei kink e desideri sessuali, altrimenti la tradisco, una donna che non soddisfa i desideri del proprio uomo, non è degna di essere una partner e merita il tradimento

    Allo stesso modo una donna che non concede i rapporti al proprio uomo, merita il tradimento.

    • Absolutely not! I would never stay with a woman who makes me miss sex, I would end the relationship immediately, for me it is important to be satisfied on all points of view. My girlfriend has to fulfil all my kinks and sexual desires, otherwise I cheat on her, a woman who does not fulfil her man's desires, is not worthy of being a partner and deserves to be cheated on Similarly, a woman who does not concede relationships to her man, deserves betrayal.

  • Nope. Been there done it and it was awful. I was about to cheat but ended it 1st after 14 years.

    • And then you turned into the backdoor queen

    • How would you feel if your man cheated on you because you did not fulfil one of his sexual desires?

    • @patrick994 who said anything about fulfilling one of his desires? And I didn't cheat!

  • Only if both individuals agree that it would be fine (and it is certainly possible that one or both of them could realize the lack of intimacy is a problem down the line). Otherwise trust issues and perhaps serious intimacy issues will develop in at least one partner.

  • Only if both parties agree that it is okay to be that way.

    Otherwise you are no longer in a "relationship" you are just friends. Sex literally is the only difference in being in a relationship with my girl and the rest of our friends.

  • I'm never allowed to have intercourse, but as long as she lets me worship her feet and butt, I'm happy. If she's also dating other guys who are allowed to have intercourse with her, that's my ideal arrangement.

  • Yes I think it totally can, but only if both partners don't consider sex an important part of the relationship. Its about compatibility, so if one partner desperately needs sex and the other isn't interested that doesn't work. But if both partners don't care and rather do other stuff then I don't see why it would be an issue.

  • I guess it would depend on the reason why

  • Depends on how you are defining sex. If your version of sex is purely fucking, then probably. But, wife and I went for a period of two years while dating where we didn’t have intercourse, but we did a lot of other things. There were days she would come out of the bedroom and say, “I really need you to eat my pussy,” and I would oblige. Sometimes I just got a nice blow job or a hand job. To me, those are still part of sex. If you don’t think so, then I worrry for you...

  • Unlikely. Intimacy is a big part of the closeness that keeps couples together

  • Only if both partners are asexuals

  • Define lack of sex. Is it no sex at all? Or sex once in a while only?

  • It is possible. Ii would depend on the reason and the love and commitment of both parties.

  • Maybe for some people.

  • It should if the couple actually love each other for who they are and not for Sexual gratification. I don't believe sex and love are one in the same. That might just be because in asexual 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Aim man i aim going to say is not going to work 100%
    I have sex problem and no one of my relationship work
    Every when i was do everything in relationship ( attention - date's - weekends - money - gifts - love - respect - support - ) it's always failed
    By they cheating me.

    But problem is most of them want to stay whit me 😂😂😂 if not as couple as frands 😂😂😂😂

  • I doubt it.

  • I don’t think so.

  • Apparently there are some asexual people out there who seem to do fine without it but it's a deal breaker for me

  • I don't think so

  • I know it wouldn’t work for me. If I am in a relationship it would be the foundation of a friendship with the added bonus of sexual activities together. Take that away and it’s just a friendship.

  • Only if they agree on it.

    Each person needs to communicate their sexual needs to each other.

  • If there is NO SEX and that's a change from frequent sex, that can be a concern. Yet infrequent sex isn't as bad if there's a reason for it.

    • My girlfriend and I don't have sex that often even though we live together. Part of it is because we enjoy cuddling a lot more and a it's more intimate than sex.

    • For me cuddling after sex is even better, most intimate thing ever.

    • @sawno it is very intimate, but so is just cuddling in general.
