I love sex
But that doesn't meant that i can't/won't be in a sexless relationship
I would respect my partners decisions

Pain does not exist...
Dating relationship-wise... yeah i could do without sex and all. If I were to marry that person or at least live out my days with them... I couldn't do it... Not only do I have needs/urges... but... I want babies... and I want them the good old natural way... or at least as natural as I can get it with whoever I end up with xDD

besides I'm a very intimate person just by nature... i don't think I could deny that nature very long...

I've tried... didn't end well at all ><
...in my dojo

pretty much what she said :3

I'm not sure if you need any more information, being as this was a few days ago. However, I'm asexual with a bisexual outlook. I have no interest in sex, and sometimes it even repulses me. So its hard to find someone who is interested in just having fun together. Hanging out. Like being friends but with a little bit more.

I think I could easily be in a relationship without sex. I really don't care about sex as far as pleasure is concerned; I care about the intimacy that comes with it, which I know that there are plenty of ways to be intimate without bringing sex into things.

I was in a relationship without sex.
It wasn't really that hard.....for her.

But to answer that question, no I wouldn't.

I was in a relationship that started out HOT.
Then things got cold and we went without for months at a time.
It was easy for her, extremely hard for me.
We broke up and she got herself a couple BOYFRIENDS.
So that explained why we weren't having sex.

& yes, I resent her immensely. I loved her & you don't ******** me like that.

I don't think I could do that.
If my partner didn't want to have sex with me, that would make me feel horrible and unwanted. I would want the person I love to want me physically and emotionally.

I think sex is very important (in an adult relationship, I mean. KIDS DONT HAVE SEX OK!?)
Sex teaches you about yourself and your partner, and the intimacy brings you closer.

I'm asking this out of general curiosity, and I also may be interested in writing a paper about this sometime. What the question is, is:

Would you ever be in a relationship if you knew for a fact that the other person had no interest in being sexually intimate with you?

The reason why I divided the answers into male/female/other, is because we all know it's been statistically proven that most males think about sex every 8 minutes, and the majority of male sex drive is often larger than females. Then I added "other" because silly me, many people conform to completely different gender identities than simply "male/female"!

Please feel free to reply with any details you find relevant, and include whether or not you'd feel compelled to commit adultery in such a relationship, because of your 'needs' not being met.

Thanks! heart

p.s. i'm posting this poll in a variety of places on the internet because i am deeply interested in your answers! <3

Yes, I would be in a relationship fully committed without sex.

I figure, there is a reason if my partner doesn't want to be intimate with me. Maybe She has religious views, or perhaps is just uncomfortable with sex. There are plenty of other ways to have romance in a relationship.

My self-esteem would be hurt, badly.
I need my partner to want me and I want to want them.
I don't need sex, hell I haven't had "regular" sex;
I just need the "one day we will have sex"

I could be in a relationship without sex, it would drive me nuts, but if I loved the person then sure, I would gladly do that if I knew it made them happy.
Who am I kidding? I love sex. Seriously, this drives me crazy.

I don't mind waiting. But I couldn't be with a person who would never want sex.

[yes I just read my answer and laughed at myself, I was half asleep]
hate to break it to you but you kind of are in a relationship without sex...for now. but still. yeah, sucks huh?

Yup, but like I said, I can wait, you're worth it. And don't act like it isn't driving you nuts too xp
