It seems that there are many conflicting opinions on the roles of sex and intimacy within a relationship (and out of one, too).
It is difficult to really get to the bottom of this problem because no two people have exactly the same ideas on sex. In a traditional framework, sex would come with long-term commitment, or marriage, which would be associated with the couple having an intimate connection with each other (and usually wishing to procreate).
However, in an increasingly promiscuous society, the connection between sex and intimacy can be a tenuous one.
Intimacy is at the heart of a strong relationship. Intimacy is about knowing someone deeply and being able to be completely free in that person’s presence. It is an emotional state that is often reserved for just one person. Ideally, sex in a loving relationship should be the physical embodiment of intimacy. It should come from a place of love and connection. Within a relationship the two are inextricably linked: intimacy builds sex and sex builds intimacy.
What are your thoughts ? Can you have sex with someone and have no type of emotional involvement ? As long as you “Climax” is that all that matters? What’s better, “Just Sex” or “Sex with Intimacy Involved” ?
