Can you live without sex?

I'm not against sex or anything, but I could honestly take it or leave it. Would we die without sex? Is it a need or a want? (Not referring to populating the human race)

  • Well, Im single, and I tell you what, I would rather be in my bed alone then be in a relationship that is not good for me,,,but seriously over the past few years I have hooked up with guys who where complete jerks. There are some pretty big perks to not having sex, when you know you are in a better place from not having to deal with everything else the relationship brings,,,

  • Actually, did you know that having sex regularly helps prevent prostate cancer and heart disease in men? True fact!

    Seriously though, I really enjoy sex. While I could live without it, I don't think it'd be much fun.

  • I love it. I don't want to sound mean but I think it is natural to very much enjoy it. I think that when people don't enjoy it that they either have something wrong with them or their relationship. Like depression, trust issues or sadly past abuse. This is just how I feel maybe people think that since I like it so much I have something wrong with me.
    I guess I would not die with out it though.

  • Sometimes I would rather go without. I love my SO dearly & with every fiber of my being, but sometimes I'm just so tired that I could care less about sex. Sometimes he falls asleep on the couch & I leave him there so that I can have the whole bed to myself. Maybe thats just me being a bed hog!lol
