You can easily find a reason to hate a close friend, but it is difficult to find reason to like anyone. - me!!

SEX, CAN YOU LIVE WITHOUT IT? - Page 4

Life without it is so much better, especially if they are male. The more I live the more I am wholly convinced that men giving in to sex is a blight, a weakness. All any guy really needs to do is look real hard at how much effort they put forth, to sometimes have sex, compared to what effort women put forth and they are likely to be celibate. When they factor in the harm they have felt as a result of getting and trying to get sex, it paints a clear picture that sex is an affliction in men.
I won't even go into the part where women almost universally see sex as a weapon, or a means to an end, never as a mutual gift.

Agree, it may sometimes take too much effort. There is no doubt that one can live without sex - its not food, not water, you won't die starving. Sex is more like a spice in life.

There are many statistics floating around the web one is that around 20 percent of couples live “sexless” marriages
(Sexless meaning having sex less than 10 times a year) which I believe was quoted in Newsweek.

As a couple the first thing is to find out if you both think there is a problem and whether you are prepared to do something about it.

Are you unhappy with her/his sex drive?

Start being honest and start talking to each other about your needs.

You can totally live without sex, I am definitely a testament to that. This time round, I am about 1 year at no type of sexual contact with another. I think it really depends on what you want. I mean I occasionally get cravings but seeing as how I am not the type of person to crave intimacy, actually I strongly fear it in general, I tend to get over these cravings really fast. I think the big thing you have to define for yourself, is determine what sex is, what it means to you, and what it does for you. That will truly answer your question on whether you can live without it. It will not kill you to not have sex, there are multitudes of celibate people around the world.

People spend more time stuck in traffic in their lifetime than they do with sex.

Most people have sex that lasts about 20 minutes. That's 1/72 of a day which means that people spend 71/72 of the day living without sex.

It's not an accomplishment. It's the norm that everyone lives 98% of their lives without sex.

Yes.

I can't live without oxygen. I can't live without water. Not long without food. And barely a day without rationalization. But sex? Yes.
