Sex is like air, it doesn't seem like it's that important until you're not getting any.


That was the best T-shirt I've ever seen in my life!

I think a lot of you are taking the question out of context.

There was never any mention of relationship in the original post. Why read further into a question when it's just not there? The question as I saw it was about sex, not sex AND relationships, just sex... "how important is sex to you".

Sex is very important to me.
Went without for way too long in my marriage.

Mind you... I do know the difference between love, lust and just sex.

a physical relationship does not necessarily lead to love... I know this.

I woulde love to have an intimate and caring relationship with a man...and ongoing thing... not just a one-nighter or casual dating. Got to face it..sometimes it is just about sex.

Sex is one of several important factors in a relationship. A relationship isn't the same without good sex.

Absolutely! But only with someone with whom I'm "into" as a person. One of the greatest pleasures in life should not be shared with anyone other. This is why God created batteries.

I have left relationships and my last marriage, due to the lack of sex from my partner. The physical contact I receive from sexual contact, equates to a form of intimacy between my partner and I. I enjoy sex daily and am hoping to find a partner who has the same desire as I do.

The post's I read regarding "no sex on 1st date" or "wait until the 3rd date" etc. are a little disheartening to me as if the woman I meet doesn't have the same desire for sex that I do, then I don't want to invest more into the relationship if we're not sexually compatible. Sex is a fun way to express yourself to another person, not to mention it gives a feeling of intimacy with my partner. Fifteen years ago when I was dating, I arranged to meet of woman for the 1st time however she lived in a security complex and asked me to come directly to her home to pick her up for a dinner date. Well she came to the front door to greet me...in the nude...and we got busy together, and afterwards went out for dinner...and after back to her place again for multiple session of mutual pleasure. We dated for a few months with sex occurring each time however it didn't work out for the two of us for other reasons.

Now that is the kind of woman I would love to find again. Someone who feels comfortable in their own skin, who's meeting their own needs, and one who takes the intuitive about their own sexuality rather than holding it out as a reward if you're good or to hook you for a deeper commitment. Sex is fun people. It's better with someone you love but it can be fun just between two consenting adults as well.

It is very, very important to me. Extremely important! There are other various aspects of a relationship that are important too though. Definitely others, but sex ranks very high to me.

What do you mean by Important? Could you quantify it? or at least prioritize it? Like more important than work? or more important than sorting one's DVD collection alphabetically.

well considering the fact that we are a species of animal in possession of the same evolutionary urges (to feed, to f*ck, etc.) as any other species, I would assume that sex is vitally important to all of us. Because, that is how we are genetically hardwired. We are nothing more or less than a collection of genes seeking to replicate themselves. The sexual urge with which every species of animal (including homo sapiens) comes equipped, is the corollary offshoot of the evolutionary instinct to reproduce., to ensure the survival of our bloodline, ie our genes. Nothing more or less. It is texactly he same in humans as it is in other mammals. In short, there is absolutely nothing "special" or "sacred" about "human sexuality." We only like to believe that there is because that contributes to the comfortable, ego boosting delusion that we are not "animals", that we are "human beings", ie that somehow we exist on a higher plane of existence than our fellow mammals.

How important is sex?Well it is the second most important thing to me. I would say the first and formost important thing to me is breathing. Yes, we dont take note of it very often but it is my number one important thing. Then sex rate behind. All kinds of different types of sex. Sex is amazing :)

mmm Breathing..
and then there's Eating. Delicious food.
and there's drinking: Mmm I like freshly squeezed orange juice.
and for me there's... photography, surfing on the internet, dancing, reading, cooking, listening to tunes on my iPod, and then sex.

kinky and freaky are just forms of foreplay that can heat things up to a fever pitch and enhnace and prolong the experience. The people MUST be able to communicate their wants,.needs, desires, and fantasies & know the other will accept them & not judge them or put them down for sharing them withthe one they trust

I have no interest in sex whatsoever.

I have my cats and dogs, they provide all the affection I need.

At this age? Very important for a healthy relationship. During these days of famine - my urologist says "why do you think you have two hands?"

On a scale of 1-100, probably about 110? I have the hormones of a teenage boy.

No sexual intercourse at all or never.Maybe this is why I don't get a date.Not that I don't like sex but unable to keep an erection during intercourse.I'm not going to take viagra though.There are many ways to have fun in the bedroom besides sexual intercourse.I enjoy Bdsm,fetishes,masterbation,oral sex and dildo .Just no intercourse.

I agree with bgrumbling and I'm also a guy

I'm not crazy about it, I've "done the deed" and i really don't care for it that much.
There are plenty other ways of saying i love you than having sex, for me, its not a stress reliever, but actually causes me more stress, I don't get what the big deal about it is, it feels good, that doesn't make it important. And just because someone doesn't want sex, doesn't mean that you aren't attractive to them, otherwise they wouldn't kiss you either.

but hey, just my 2 cents

it is very important it must be done lol. If not eventually they will cheat on each other, well I know if I'm in a happy realatshionship I'm getting good twice a week at least any ways, I end up with a bigger smile on my face when I go to work, which leads to some thing else that guys talk about a guy who is has girl friend who wants him attracts more and more women and if a guy who is single and who walk's alone is doomed trust me I know this If I go to a bar alone , the ladies have zero interest in me I could hit on 5 to 6 a night and get completely blow'n off. If I had a girl friend and if we went out id have 2 to 3 girls hitting on me WHY?
