    It helps to have someone who is on the same page as you when it comes to sex otherwise there are huge problems. Sex does play a big roll in some relationships and in others it is not that big of a deal. With me it is a big deal it means a lot to me to have someone who is into me and wants to be with me that way, it makes me feel like we are one.

    Sex is the only thing that keeps a relationship together when its the only thing you had in the first place.

    Sex is important because guys primarily bond physically. They play sports with the guys and bond. Girls bond more by being emotional intimate. They sit and chat with thier girls, cry on each others sholders, and bond over thier problems. Emotional intimacy is as important to a realationship as sex. Also important are trust, common interests, and respect. If you don't have respect and trust, you have nothing.

    But I would guess that would get old pretty damn fast. Why have a relationship if you are both only wanting the sex. Have sex and stay single, would be my advice. A relationship means more than sex to me.

    Usually at first glace, physcial attraction happens. Thats usually the spark, the sexual urge. Thats probably what you would call puppy dog love. I've had it, everyone has. There are times when you can get to know a person before you're attracted to them, and not even know it. I'm actually in that position right now. I'm really liking this girl and it was before any sexual attraction.

    Look, people don't want to admit it but a great sex life will make you forget about all of the little annoying stuff that makes you want to choke your mate. After the big O, you realize that what you were pissed about wasn't all that important.

    I've been married for 15 years. You need more then just sex to stay together. Love is the most important. Lust comes and goes, but love is the only reason it comes back.

    or at least it shouldn't be
    if you be with someone for the sex your body will be satisfied but your emotional sense wont be. You obviously don't know what you're doing if you've only had relationships to have sex because a long lasting happy relationship is based on love, trust, and all that other good stuff and sex is somewhere in there

    Sex should be the cream at the top.

    You can see how cream would be a bad foundation.

    I don't think so because if a guy really likes and cares for you he won't care if you want to have sex or not until you're ready

    In some cases yes, but not in my relationships. But sex should play a role in a relationship at least once.

    Sex is great. However, it is not enough to hold a relationship together.
    There has to be more. Affection, friendship. the sharing of dreams and ideas, conversation.

    No, not a good relationship anyway. That's not say sex isn't great and that a relationship can't revolve around sex, but it should in no way hold it together.

    There seems to be a support group out there for anything from A-Z. People don't discuss their issues with their partners any longer...they do it with strangers on sites like this one!!! Sooooo, sex at times is all that is left in a relationship. Then again...there are sites for that too.....so never mind

    Lotta people are together only becouse they would miss the sex.
    I think, I am the real proof, that sex is not enough. My partners never had any problames in bed with me, I have quite a technique (fast fingers from guitar lessons, etc.), but they ditched me all the time, becouse I can be quite a lunatic sometimes... :(

    I think good communication is what actually keeps a relationship together. I do feel that sex is a very important part of any relationship though. When the sex isn't satisfying or frequent enough for both partners, I think over time that can wear on a relationship. We all need to feel loved and wanted.....
