  • Not long at all , not sure if it’s a good thing or bad thing but it’s just the way I am made I guess , if I go without it for too long, I start to get grumpy and moody and start feeling depressed when I am in a relationship with someone , if she holds out on me , I start to feel resentful and feel like their must be something wrong with me or she is up to no good and question why she doesn’t want to have sex especially when her and I had no issues before about wanting each other and sex wasn’t an issue , but when it starts to become an issue and there isn’t any logical reason why she is holding out on me and I have to resort to masturbating to get off then I feel the relationship is pretty much over , I don’t need sex every day but once a month doesn’t cut it for me , so for me to get into a relationship with a girl she needs to want sex like I do or it won’t work , I will communicate my feelings to her and if nothing changes I will end it with her and find someone that wants sex , My thing is I don’t need anyone , I want to be wanted by someone the same way I want them , to feel wanted by me , We weren’t put on Earth to be used I am perfectly capable of supporting myself , so when it comes down to feeling like things are one sided then to me their is no point of being in a relationship with that person , I rather be single and live my life and do what I want and be open to meeting new girls that want to feel wanted and want to feel intimacy and affection , Just because I might love someone it doesn’t mean I have to be with them , if I cheat on her I end the relationship right then and there , I answered my own question that I truly don’t feel valued from her if I can cheat on her so there is no point going back to her , so if my wants and needs aren’t being met I will communicate with her and let her know how I am feeling , if things don’t get better between us then I let her know this isn’t working and that’s something I learned to let go of because I been down that road before to find out I was being cheated on , We all are imperfect people and we all are our own worst enemy , so I am not going to commit to someone that isn’t going to commit to me is the way I look at it , if someone can’t remove selfishness for me then I can’t remove selfishness for them , Sex and loyalty and trust is the only way I will commit to someone , if they can’t do that for me then they are better off being single and living their selfish lifestyle , and not waste my time being unsure of what they really want out of a relationship , If selfishness can’t be removed in a relationship then love will never grow , it’s a waste of time , value yourself and find someone that values you like you value them , Cheating is a selfish choice and it’s one of the worst things to do to someone but lying about it and keeping it a secret is also lying to yourself and makes matters worse , A cheater is best to walk away from someone the second they cheat on them not waste their time pretending they still love and value that person and making excuses that it was a mistake , it was a choice that was made so live up to your mistakes if your partner forgives you and wants to make it work then it can work as long as they don’t cheat on you or you cheat again , Most people can’t admit to themselves that they are a piece of shit when we can admit to ourselves that we are not perfect you have a better chance of being forgiven if you lie about it and make excuses then you are a piece of shit that’s my logic lol

  • I voted E. I am oversexed, need to get intimate with a girl most everyday.

    • @laurieluvsit Thank you for the Like

    • I especially didn't want you to think that was my unhappy face. I rarely give those on other's posts anyway and never on my posts. Besides I don't see anything unhappy about what you said. Sounds like a win-win to me! ... lol

    • You would love my cock

  • After my divorce I went into hibernation. It's been a long hibernation, and now I'm "Looking to Get." I was just not interested in going back into the lion's den.
    A girl I work with told me I should just find a couple, because it's kind of a compromise.
    I placed an ad on swinglifestyle, and I've been talking to a couple. They're awesome, and looking for a fairly regular situation. They have a place on the lake, a boat and a hot tub.
    They told me to take my time and think about it. No pressure. I don't know if I can go through with this, but I'm excited when I get a message from them.

    • One of many experiences I had was with a couple at Clear Lake in California. It was not their place but a rental with a hot tub on the outside deck overlooking the lake, sounding similar to what you are describing they own. We got into the hot tube nude and just relaxed and chatted about pleasurable topics which got into discussing past sexual experiences. That helped to get us sexually comfortable with each other and most stimulated. Both of them were super nice. The girl was a little shyer than I was but once we were in the bedroom and laid down things got very hot very quickly. It was an incredibly great experience. Just think about the relaxing and chatting part as the sex part will just come naturally that way. Have fun!

    • And with a couple, it truly is a no strings thing. That's the part I like about it.

    • Definitely, yes!

  • If I compare it to starvation, then forever without sex. It's not that important.

    Other then that, I do usually get the lust for it after like 6-7 months but this time it's been 7 months without and I'm not horny at all

  • i'm into giving oral sex and i' miss that the most when i can't find someone to suck

    • Very few can understand how that can be an honest need.

    • most girls don't like it that much or not addicted to it i think it's the arousal and adrenlaine rush that makes me want to so much.

  • A month or two without porn. Years without touch

    • I would have bet that you could live without porn, but 1-2 without touch... What are you watching? It must be good.

    • @SamIam96 i just watch random clips 10-20 mins of different stuff. The porns not great hut its a guilty pleasure just like reality shows. I dont even masturbate to porn. I just like watching it. I've easily gone 8 years without sex before. I’d be fine

    • I think I understand what you say about porn. For me, it's a bit like watching a car crash. You can't avert you eyes, but it isn't satisfying either. But, touch... I confess, I'm a slut. It isn't all about orgasming, its about the touch. The fleeting intimacy. tell more...

  • I could live forever without it. But would I want to? Would life be worth living? LOL

    • This dude literally pays for sex 💀💀 can’t believe anything this embarrassing weirdo says

    • @Aphrodite801. Who pays for sex?

  • Without sex you won't die... Ya but you do need some kind of stimulating to keep going after sex gets part of your life...

  • As long as I can masturbate, I'm fine.

  • To be honest? I’m not sure. I’d like to say I can go up to a few weeks but I haven’t attempted that my entire life. It sounds like a good challenge

  • no idea, never tried... maybe a couple of months

    but I would not lose my mind, I would just be like.. "what's even the point?" lol

  • I could go for a day without pleasuring myself. 😻

  • I've not so much as been hugged in fifteen years. So, so far, that long without sex.

    • Awe :(

    • Well, I'd let myself go for a bit when I was diagnosed with some mental health stuff. Then apparently I'm also very... dense. Oops.

  • I'm guessing till I die of natural causes. It would suck

  • If WE ABSOLITELY HAD TO DO WITHOUT, I guess it could be indefinitely, but would we want to? No.

    • The main question is if we survive, the poll talks about losing the mind. There is the answer, if you can keep yourself from losing the mind you can survive. That depends on the circumstances. Men who get castrated say they don't think of sex anymore, so that's a way to fix our mindloss.

  • If I go for more than a week I start having erotic dreams. My body takes care of itself one way or another.

  • It's been over 26 years since my last fuck and, I probably only have a wank about once a month.

  • I could probably do better if I did not know there would be a time limit. If I had to think about it I would last about 15 minutes.

  • I went one in a half years when my girlfriend passed away after 10years gone just like that I did not want anyone and I lived just fine with out sex yes I worked my jobs like a mad man and train and worked out like a mad man other than that I was clear minded after awhile and physical strong which I still am lol !

  • I follow your thinking- longer than I would like to think, unfortunately.

    The scientific numbers before damage can set in for our bodies:
    no oxygen - 3 minutes.
    no water - 3 days
    no food - 3 weeks
    no touch - 3 months (not necessarily sexual touch, just touch/socialization)

    This is NOT to say that people haven't lived for more than three days without water, for example, or 3 weeks without food : in fact, they have, and pearl dives can hold their breath for 5-6 minutes- repeatedly- with no ill effects. This is merely a list of when bad things START to occur to the body with the specified lacks.

  • I regularly practice orgasm denial w my SO, but there’s plenty of playing in between. With NO touching whatsoever, I’d be in trouble by day 7 or so. At least with edging you get the pleasure of play even with no finish.

  • 130 to 140 days

    • Lol it's tested and proven multiple times sexual stimulation is equal to only mastrubation. Sometimes it's so much pressure like i want to hit someone 🤣. By the way I like the steward 😉

  • Any form?
    I can rarely go more than 24 hours

  • D if you count masturbation. I’m still working on quitting porn because I’m so lonely… (not an excuse. just the reason.)
