is 1 the lowest and 10 the highest, or vice versa? for me personally, i would say about a 5...at one time it was at a much higher ranking though.

10 being most important. Kerrie, to answer the poll I considered how (miserable) my life would be without any sex at all.

Woman often find themselves in the position of pleasing their partner. Men could learn greatly from the empathic intercommunication of mutual needs and desires - with ecstatic intimacy as a bonus.

I don't know, I would have to experience it first, and that is about as likely as the sun going supernova in my lifetime. If that makes my life miserable, well, I guess there are levels of misery, and there are always other activities (e.g. hobbies) that can provide one with pleasure in life.

If I was in a relationship that enabled me to have sex, it would be very important, but I haven't been in such a relationship for 3 years.

I haven't experienced it like cragwolf, but I got damn close...don't know if oral foreplay is sex? Ohh well, I'd consider it a 1 then.

funny, this is exactly what i'm trying to teach my girlfriend... she's almost afraid of sex... forces me to be very sensitive and communicate for two, but i guess that's positive in a way...

You know this needs explaining... is it because you haven't had relationships or were the guys somehow... broken? :wink:

Well, I come back after 7-8 months and this is the top-most thread (after the stickies) .... interesting http://users.pandora.be/eforum/emoticons4u/happy/045.gif

I voted 6. After more than 3.5 years of marriage, I still enjoy it quite a bit. Can surely live without it, but probably not for too long. :shy: :wink:

Hey, 3 and 7 are BOTH missing!

Anyway, I voted 6, but it was hard to put a real number to it. It increases in importance when I'm around a very attractive man who I want sex with, but I can manage without when circumstances require. Besides, there are always other ways to relieve those urges.

And for those of you who are still virgins, don't worry, it's something worth waiting for...it'll be even better if your first time is with someone very special.

Umm ... I dont quite agree. The first time is (quite understandably) a bit awkward ... anxiety levels are high etc. Its only subsequently that you can get more and more comfortable and the real fun begins :wink:

Yep, not that important. Unlike many of my peers, I have strong self discipline and believe that reframing from sex before marriage is essential for maintaining a clean mind and body. Many people struggle to reframe from sex because they indulge themselve's in the thought of it. Looking at porn and constantly checking out ckicks will only tornment you. Of course I do "check out chicks" but doing it constantly to every girl that passes you is perverted. Many men will compeled to do this constantly to simply prove to other guys there not gay. Good thing I don't care what people think my sexual orintation is.

that's too bad... even the most intelectually stimulating relationships cannot substitute the feeling of touch...
