I understand this is subjective. Several yrs ago I would have said sex was not a need. Today I would say it is absolutely a need, totally lol.
Do you think its a need for some?
I think masturbation is absolutely sex for the purposes of this discussion.
How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong. Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these. GeorgeWashingtonCarver
