As a guy; I can honestly say that, “Sex is more underrated than overrated,” By Far. It’s a known scientific fact that many relationships start through chemistry. Now, before anyone gets all bent out of shape and starts sending me hate mail because of this post just stop to think about it.
For many people, whether they want to admit it or not, their attraction to the person they are now with started for at least one of them on a physical level. “Yes,” I’m saying that there’s a very strong likelihood that if one of the party didn’t feel attraction at a corporeal level they wouldn’t have agreed to go on that first date.
Physical chemistry is the glue that keeps many relationships together, sometimes even unhealthy ones. If you run into trouble socially with a partner who you do not have chemistry with, you are going to be way less likely to want to stay in a relationship with that person!
Many men and women will put up with more if the chemistry is good and even more if the sex they are having is really good too! It is a motivator for a lot of folks to put more effort into their relationships.
“Now,” it is true that there are some couples who don’t mind not having sex and have great relationships. But these folks are found fewer and further apart then some would like us to believe. I’m not saying that it’s impossible to have a perfectly healthy committed monogamous relationship, or marriage, between a man and a woman without sex being a part of the equation. You will never hear me say that because it really is possible. “Rare,” but possible.
But for a lot of folks (myself included); if we are not with someone we have at least some chemistry with there’s a good chance that the relationship isn’t going to last. If the chemistry between us was good, working out the compromises between us based on our differences would come much more easily.
Of course, there are reasons that relationships fail even if the people in them are sexually active. But to sit there and say that, “Sex is overrated,” and condemn people for wanting more of it in their relationships is just such a huge myth to buy into.
I enjoy sex; How about you? Do you value it as a part of your relationships?
