    Is it possible to have a relationship without ANY sexual activity at all?

    Yes, you have them all the time. Your relationship with your family is (hopefully) platonic. The one you have with your best friend is platonic.

    What type of relationship are you referring to? You can't have a lover without having some sort of sexual activity, it's contradictory. Are you referring to having a really good friend of the opposite sex that you are pals with?? Of course!

    i think it's possible...it would be very difficult if it was a true relationship where both of you are growing closer to one another and love each other and want to share that love... but if both agree to abstain from sex... then sure!

    and on a side note... technically... even though society doesn't uphold these truths... girlfriends and boyfriends aren't supposed to have sex. that is something reserved for a husband and wife. ;)

    Sex being ONLY for a husband & Wife? Give me a break! that's something that is fed to everyone by the bible...the world's best selling work of fiction!

    Who decides what is right and wrong?

    sex is supposed to be something special shared between two people who truly love each other. i'm not an animal that will mate with any other creature in my species... and actually i've seen animals that were more selective in a sex partner than some humans are...

    i'm just saying that sex is a serious commitment. you shouldn't take it lightly and think it's no big deal. it's something special.. you share a part of your soul with the person and it should only be shared when you know they are THE ONE....

    sorry.. i'm an old fashioned, romantic kind of girl. i knew i was born in the wrong era!!

    I'm with you there, lora! I do not believe that sex should only be between married couples, cause the simple fact is that sex is an important part of a relationship, and you really don't want to commit the rest of your life with someone only to find out that they never want sex, and you do. or that they are really bad at it, or that they are really scary at it . . .etc.

    However, promiscuity in Men and women is not an admirable trait. One night stands are not admirable. I made a joke about the fact that I had only one one night stand in my life, and that was on the 3rd date!!;):D

    anyhoo . . .I just wanted to applaud that comment, about sex being something you share with someone special.

    ok.. i'll agree with you to a point... many marriages have ended in divorce because of the bedroom... but... i also know for a fact that 'bad sex' can be improved... sex drives will change over time anyway, that's just part of life... and the scary sex part.. not going to touch it.. LOL!! not into bondage and pain and torture... but i think i am pretty open-minded...

    i also have to say though, that sex should not be the basis of the relationship.. which i know you realize.. it's an expression of your love and commitment, not the actual love or commitment...

    and most of the time, if you really love the person, then you'll be able to talk through it and compromise to reach a decision where both are fulfilled.

    That's why VIAGRA was created! :p



    As far as a "Couple" having sex, there's nothing wrong with it as long as:

    1. it's not Forced
    2. BOTH parties are MATURE enough to handle it!

    Other than the above...what is between two consenting people, preferably adults, is their own business!

    Yah know.. sexual frustration can be a bad thing and cause lots of tension... not only do you have to both agree to have sex but you want to make sure you are both on the same side of not having sex :)

    Depending on if 1 or both parties have already had sex, could be a big thing to be in a relationship all the sudden with out having sex could cause difficulty.

    Theres as much talk about not having sex in a relationship as there is in starting to have sex in a relationship. When it happens it happens... something you need to go with the flow on and not talk so much on...

    My first girlfriend and I dated for 6 years before we did anything sexual. When it did come about, it was her that did the initiating. I was so shocked that she intended to have sex with me that I turned her down.. Later, we split up. I believe a large part of the reason we split was due to me not having sex with her.. :rolleyes:

    Should mention, my sex drive is no longer what it was when I was 18.. Now I look back and think about the women I turned down and wish I would'ave been a little more wild while I was younger.

    ash: i have to disagree with you a little on this one... i think it's important to talk about sex upfront som both parties know where you stand..... i don't think you shoudl dwell on it... but it does need to be discussed.
    too many diseases and unexpected pregnancies come from 'just going with the flow'
