do you think we should do sex as much we need it physically or we should restrict our self with social boundaries.
do you think not doing sex as much our body needs makes us sex starved or addict or insane???????????
I say, if you have the time to fit it into your daily schedule, then it will keep you extremely healthy.
One will go insane, should they follow the second doctrine of religions to the maximum. The second doctrine of religions calls for one to oppress their inner desires, all of them. After a period of time, a person will go completely insane and most likely hurt or harm someone.
That's just a thought. Interesting questions though.
Why do priest and nuns do just fine without sex? Or, do you think the whole Catholic Church is insane? I think like you as far as religion in general goes, but, I don't think Catholic Priest and Nuns show mental illness more than people of any other religion or no religion.
I find your post revolting to say the least. These people claim to abstain from having it, yet they do, not only with each other, but with children too?
Not all of them, because most are just perpetuating the hoax known as religion or god, whichever the case. However, I would like to point out- pedophiles in churches don't give you a clue to the mental state of some?
I'm glad you have your narrow view. Do keep it, it suits you.
However, if any single person attempts to live their life, within DOCTRINE of their religion- just getting through the first three is unattainable and will drive one insane.
Hence, a self-realization comes to be that religion is a hoax purported/perpetuated by others, for power, influence and wealth, and Nothing more.
Elpaso do you think banning something this natural and human phenomenon is religious? I am not attacking christanity as hinduism, buddhism too have same theroies but every creature do it and this is so natural. we need it for having baby and you know if sex was not satisfying or entertaining and was suppose to be only a process, do you really think as much selfish we are right now we will do something boring and hard exercise just to have children. Why would nun or monk or pope wouldnt do it. is it sin?
Why is it sin because its bring pleasure, and i question those religion who abandon pleasure, i question if it is of god way but i believe thats human stupidity.
I think it's stupid and downright unhealthy not to have sex as much as you can. But, you are a Hindu and I'm not religious. So we have no say in what practices Catholic Priests and nuns believe are their CALLING! Their reasons make sense considering the responsibility they take on. God Sustains them. They seem fine to me.
Not that there's the most tact on this thread, but coming from a highly religious background, I was trained not only to abstain, but just plain not think about it! Believing that God made me and life was about living for Him, I did everything in my power to whole heartedly follow what I was taught. Considering we didn't have a TV nor easy access to the internet, I ended up not releasing any of that tension until I was 23! (well, except for nights when those dreams just went wild!) It was so bad for my health and I have so many muscle tension issues and others. God, I wish I was corrupted at an earlier age! So yes, sex is definitely very healthy. That's not to say moderation isn't important, but each person has a different definition of moderate, and I say, to each his own!
*Disclaimer: Letting lofty unrealistic religious rules dominate one's life often is unrealistic as man contorts and misinterprets and makes religion a misery. That doesn't mean there isn't a god(s), and that spirituality doesn't exist. I just find that man tends create religion, rules, regulations, and impossible standards that bread hypocrisy, misrepresentation of what they believe to be the truth, and turn religion into complete. tomfoolery.
Another Fantastic, Highly Motivational and Sexually Charged Thread
What WE do is a matter of Personal Choice Not a matter of Herd Mentality.... Unless of course you are a two headed Bull.
In Answer to your question: Clearly with the nature of your question along with the number of ????s here... you suffer from that fine line between sex starved and an over indulgent use of your dominant hand
Were you attempting to demonstrate that to an audience?
Sex alone is an awful word for me. I use the term "making love, sounds better for me...It is noted to relieve stress and one of the best physical and mental exercise a human being could have..If couples perform it with full emotion, heart and all, the result would be awesome...also, it is the best "side-effect free" (even if taken "overdozage") sleep-inducer...hahaha..(is there such thing as sex overdose?).. the best alarm to wake us up in the morning....for ladies, it makes the skin supple and glowing and radiant...young looking...beautiful...It is also a glue that binds marriage..couples.... I was told by a close friend last time that ONE of the things to keep husband at home is "sex"..u can go to a restaurant for good food to fill ur tummy, anytime...but not sex with love.....
Huh...Me would like to think that perhaps what you might have sauid somewhere earlier could be the case but Me can not think straight this morning for some kind of reason???
I like sex! Anything that feels that good should be done as often as possible! Denial though is good for discipline and raising anticipation makes for a pleasurable and satisfying sexual experience!
that's why am I abstaining from sex for the next 40 years...
I want to have a killer orgasm on my 80th birthday!
oh!....better have a "rehearsal" first before your big day!....smile....
stop hitting on me please.... and come back in 4 decades
stop thinking about your age...the more you think about those digits, the more you feel...#@*&%$......!....instead, ...think young...feel young......love a lot.....laugh a lot.....smile always....be happy...hmmmmmuah!...
Hit on me!!! I am old, though I can hold!!!!
Yep, sex feels good and does wonders for your mood, but it's also fantastically great for your health. Research shows that people with active sex lives have stronger immune systems, less pain, a lower cancer risk, healthier hearts, and less stress. The best news: It can even make you look younger—up to 12 years, a study shows.
i do not.
i think that those who feel the urge should satiate that urge in an acceptable manner (which varies from person-to-person) and when they do not that can make them less mentally fit.
so repressing those urges=bad
it causes a slew of other problems, sexual and otherwise.
i think that for those that do innately have stronger/more sexual urges should either find someone willing to accomodate or choose to go solo (i mean single, having sex with various people...)
i do not think this is bad, i think society as made people believe that the "correct" way to live is the typical tv family, but i believe some people are meant to be single. date around. eternal bachelors...ahhh the life...
but the wrong part is when you expect someone else to match your sexual desires in a relationship...or go elsewhere when they do not...
if you choose to be in a relationship...respect your partner.
other than that...anything goes, IMO. *shrugs*
is it the same question like, are sexless people mentally unfit? I say NO.
I was sexless for 8 years one time but then but I was not mentally unfit, in fact I was in a graduate studies.
A little bit dizzy always yes hehe
No...it's just sex! It not like food and water.
Check this out, if it wasn't for food, YOU would not be here. If it was,'t for water, YOU would not be here. What comes next? Do you see we=here I am going? IT is integral to perpetuating life, thus survival, the same as food, and water.
I'm starting to worry about some of the people here, sex is not necessary, sex is not important...I got to get personal: just what kind of sex are you having? Have you had GOOD GOOD sex?(Dr. Ruth)
http://exopoliticsnews.wordpress.com/20 … -megagasm/
I do, because it helps a person to maintain an emotional and physical balance in their lives- it's just as important as eating and sleeping. As for all the religious hoo haa, well...
Do you think sex is as much mental as it is physical?
I think sex is one way the body stays in homeostasis harmony with itself. It helps the body as well as the mind. It is probably one of the most healthiest activities and exercises that people do, both mentally and physically.
OK honestly chick, that avatar ROCKS! Love you even more!
don't care if i am off topic, being sexy plays a big role in sex
You Go Girl!
I don't know about mental fitness but it gives you a good cardio-vascular workout. The rest is so much cultural / social morays. (Obviously, I'm not confusing love and sex here.)
If sex were the only exercise during a lifetime then the answer would be Yes.
No, I don't think we need sex to stay mentally fit. I don't even think we need sex to remain alive.
Sex...safe sex... is one of the basic needs of humans..as long as they are able to....c'mon.guys...let's be honest to ourselves....
Sex for the sake of sex is nothingness. Sex as a true act of love has no comparison.
When are you going to change your name to Homer?
So you shouldn't do sex just for the sake of sex, otherwise you wait 40 years for nothingness
Sex leads to babies and babies are by no means "nothingness"!!!
...some people like "sex"...some people don't..those who doesn't like sex, MAYBE are the ones who haven't had experience the real act or maybe did it just for the sake of experience with a "paid" partner..and some are incapable of doing so...due to age perhaps...or health status...."the mind is willing but the flesh is weak"...
There's a man in our place who fathered a child at the age of 72 with a 27 yr old lady...they later have 8 children and he died at the ripe age of 102..And also. there was another man in our place who was already 97 and yet, he married an 18 yr old girl..they had 5 children and he lived a long life..Shouldn't he have not been hit by a falling coconut, he must have lived till 130 yrs...he died at age 125...i think, "sex adds life"...so, you guys who wants to stay fit and live longer, ..."make love"..."sexercise"... ...ah, yes...more babies...
Having sex just to say you are having or have had sex is pointless.
What I'm referring to is loveless sex. I want no part of loveless sex - If I'm going to have sex in order to have a baby then by damn the man had better love me (first!!) and I had better love him (also first!!).
Now, sex as a true act of love has no comparison.
What I'm talking about is the kind of sex that lasts for hours and hours and brings two people together, spiritually, as one. The kind of sex that doesn't' tire you or bore you, but ignites further desire for more.
Now, to answer the question again - No, I don't think we need sex in order to stay mentally fit, unless it's the only form of exercise one chooses throughout a lifetime and how sad a life that would be.
Now remember, some guys will tell you, "I love you" just to get sex that lasts for hours!
but if I don't love them they ain't getting it
I'm thinking you're a bit confused..... um, ya.... sex is not needed to stay mentally fit! lol
For whom? You? The whole thread is bit confusing!!! Take Tiger Woods for instance; he is not doing so well in his golf performance these days. Some think that if he goes back to his old ways,i.e., multiple girlfriends and sex, sex , sex, then he would probably get back to winning on the golf course. Perhaps sex kept him "focused", because before he got caught, he was winning. Focus = mental.
Tiger Woods is not a good example to use right now! lol
Tiger Woods is under a lot of stress and no matter what else happens in life, Stress causes one to lose focus! And, let's put it this way, shall we? Tiger Woods caused it himself by cheating on his wife with how many other women?? So, again, I have to say:
No, sex is not needed to stay mentally fit!!
In fact, if you ask me, based on Tiger Woods I'd say - No Sex is better for mental fitness than Sex with someone other than your spouse.
Or, No Sex is much better for mental fitness than believing Sex is necessary for mental fitness.
Tiger Woods + wonton sex = WINNING!!!
Tiger Woods + getting caught = stress = no more wonton sex (for the moment) = loss of focus = NOT WINNING ANY MORE GOLF TOURNAMENTS!!!!
He is a great example!!!
Tiger Woods + getting caught = stress induced loss of focus
Tiger Woods + wonton sex = lack of priorities or would it be morals? Probably morals.
I thank you for proving my point for me.
TW + wonton sex = a lack of morals due to his misguided priorities.
Obviously his priorities were right where he wanted them so I can't say they were in the wrong place, but I think its safe to say they were misguided. Look what it got him - a loss of focus and not winning his Game of Golf.
No. You proved my point, yet disproved yours. Sex does not affect everyone's mental health the same way. Tiger was on top of his "game" when he was "sexing it up". Marriage made him "crazy". Are you going to...never mind.
Tiger changed up his habits, that is what led to his golf decline. Sports is all about routine, when he was sexing it up, he was winning. Perhaps that is what KEPT him "focused" odd as it may seem.
Sorry, but at this point I have to say your replies are a typical male response.
Except for this statement: ----Sex does not affect everyone's mental health the same way.---- this statement of yours proves my point; sex is not necessary to stay mentally fit. If it was, the Pope and Mother Theresa would have gone downhill mentally rather quickly, don't you think? Therefore, to stay mentally fit through exercise is a much more reasonable conclusion.
Back to the typical male response: Tiger was 'on top of his game' due to his constant reaffirming of his sexual self. Now that he is no longer sleeping around he is missing the 'reaffirming' beliefs and struggles to focus on his Golf Game. In other words, Tiger struggles to believe in his own worth, as a Golf Pro, without the reaffirming beliefs of his 'sexing it up'.
What is your basis for saying sex and morals don't mix?
I believe they do.
Do you REALLY think the Mother and The Pope were "sane"? As for your last question, direct that to the Mother and The Pope. In the Judeo-Christian thing, sex is usually equated with shame and morals.
Like I said, sex is not necessary to stay mentally fit for whom? You? Sex is reptilian, no need to attach morals and guidelines to the act. I don't know if Tiger was on top of his game because of his"constant reaffirming of his sexual self." I just know when he changed his "routine", his focus waned. He is not sleeping around NOW. Only Tiger knows what the future holds for Tiger. In America, you are valued for your suck-cess, when Tiger was outed, no more suck-cess.
A scorpion man speeking out against sex. Strange new world we live in.
Morally speaking, If your sex is not hot, and funky, and dirty, like God intended, why bother?
I ain't against sex mister. Just talkin'. I think Scorpios probably think about sex more than actually engaging in the act, not to say that we do not engage, we are too busy plotting and scheming to take over the world or working to severely upset some clandestine organization, with sexual deviance of course!!!
I really can't attest to whether or not the Pope & Mother Theresa were sane - but I don't believe they were insane!
I don't believe you have to be a Christian, or even religious for that matter, to have morals. Standards of behavior come from knowing what is right and what is wrong. So, it appears to me we are on opposite sides of the morality fence regarding Tiger Woods.
Tiger didn't lose focus due to changing his routine - he lost focus due to the stress associated with his struggle to believe in himself as a Golf Pro since he no longer has the 'sexing it up' to reaffirm his masculine belief system.
BTW - I'm not attaching morals and guidelines to the act of sex in general. I do for myself, but when it comes to someone else then its their responsibility, not mine.
I don't believe Tiger knows his own future, either. He can only know what he wants for the future - but whether or not he gets it is another story.
Tiger's routine was sex, sex, sex, win, win, win. Perhaps for moral reasons he was duped into thinking that marriage was the way to go. Tiger knows his future, though it does not vibe with the ways of society and the morals attached to the Judeo-Cristian way.
Does Tiger want success as it is judged by society? Or does Tiger want reality, which is Tiger being Tiger,"flaws" and all? What I am saying is, perhaps sex played a part in what we admire Tiger for, boatloads of money and "suck-cess". This thread is dealing with a loaded question, sex is a very reptilian act, it does not require a lot of thinking.The problems occur when we try to attach morals with something that is very natural, thus trying to establish control.Perhaps you should have asked,"dose sex rule your life?" And if it does , so what? The problem is, if it rules your life, does it involve hurting another person?
Sex and morals do not mix, never did, never will. I am going out on a limb to make an ass out of myself, and assume that the Pope, and The Mother were not indulging in "the act", and because they were not "indulging in the act", do you think they were REALLY sane?
bsscorpio8, this really is a fascinating conversation. But the question is - do you think we need sex in order to stay mentally fit? I don't think using Tiger Woods as an example fits the question due to my belief in his 'sexual self' reaffirming the male belief he held that states: sex is the only way to evaluate my self worth. Maybe its easier for a woman to understand this than a man? Because many women suffer from this belief also - in fact, probably more so.
I have major issues with your first paragraph - I think its a typical male response. (sex on the mind, sex on the mind, sex on the mind - do men ever think of anything other than sex? and if not, how did Tiger Woods ever learn how to play golf??)
Sex did not play a part in what we admire Tiger for. Sex has nothing to do with Golf! Sex has nothing to do with whether or not he could hit a golf ball. Sex has nothing to do with whether or not he could play a good game of golf. Unless, of course, you think Tiger Woods had been having sex ever since he first learned how to play.
Did you know the natural response when angry is to hit? Watch any two year old who's most likely feeling that particular emotion for the first time. What do they do? They hit. Now, as a parent, do you allow the two year old to continue to hit whenever they're angry? Or, do you teach them that hitting goes against your morals? Just because sex is a natural act doesn't mean there can't be any limits applied. It isn't about control. Its about self-control, or more accurately, control over the self.
"Just because sex is a natural act doesn't mean there can't be any limits applied. It isn't about control. Its about self-control, or more accurately, control over the self."
I have to agree with BSScorpio8;
The more sex you have, the more you have an even, calmer attitude, and can concentrate better on complex matters. His performance before and after marriage proves that point.
I do not have problems with sex.I can take it or leave it. You have issues with my first paragraph, emphasis on the "you". Sex had a lot to do with Tiger's golf game, because when he was exposed, his game changed. You are trying to tell me that sex has nothing to do with golf, yet we all know that golf has to do with focus. Perhaps sex helped to keep Tiger focused on his golf game. You are treading on shaky ground when it comes to sex as it pertains to women , men, and morals. You cannot tell me that sex did not play a role in what we know Tiger for. Because Tiger was exposed for being a sexual "deviant" leads to us judging Tiger. All I know is that sports is about routine, and if Tiger's routine was about "sexing it up" and winning then so be it.
I bet you women think about sex as much as men, if not then more so. You see? Shaky ground, if it were to be discovered (which I feel that it already has been) that women think about sex as much as, or more than men, there would be a stigma attached to it, i.e. "women are sluts and whores". Tigers "sexual deviance" may have had to do with his focus on hitting the golf ball, perhaps. the sex "kept him focused"
How are you going to limit a natural act such as sex? A natural reaction to anger is hitting for humans. Animals will kill when it is related to survival, a lot of times they will run away. Remember, the Bible and morals are put in place because we are convinced that we have dominion over animals. Do we really? Are we not too animals? Who is putting the limits on an act that is very reptilian and used o perpetuate he race? You? The Church? Who? Do you see where I am coming from? The question is loaded.
"Maybe it is easier for a woman to understand this than a man"? I once had a girlfriend and I asked her,"take away the sex, and what do you have to offer?" Men want sex, women ave it, and control it. Period. Let's not even get into women sizing up men for the amount of money and assets the possess before a woman will sleep with him., or clandestine one night stances to preserve the reputation. Sex and mental fitness? That is a loaded question base on antiquated presumptions born out of the Judeo-Christian attitudes of the west.
Wow. Okay. Like I said, this has been an interesting conversation, but I think you're going way off base. It's a simple question with a not so simple answer. I don't think TW is a good example to use, you think he's the best example.
You don't know that TW is doing poorly now because of not having sex. You are assuming its true. Personally, I think its because you are a man that you feel that way. I could be wrong.
You believe TW's golf game changed because he no longer has as much sex as he wants. I think his game changed because his private life is no longer private and that makes for a very stressful life. Stress levels have more to do with focus, or lack of, than sex does.
Are you serious? I'm not the one who puts a limit on sex! LOL There is a natural limit to how much of anything a body can handle. Don't try drinking a gallon of water too quickly - it can kill you. This is called a natural consequence. What happens if there's no limit to how much sex a person has? Well, I think it depends on the person. But, one thing I can say, I don't believe too much sex is healthy - mentally or physically. How much sex is too much sex? Again, I think it depends on the person.
----and I asked her,"take away the sex, and what do you have to offer?"----
Let me tell you, if you had been my boyfriend and asked me this question - YOU would have seen the LAST of ME!
I don't believe I have anything else to say. Thanks for an interesting conversation.
Most likely, you are wrong. I do not give a shit about Tiger Woods, though you make statements, and I am able to debate them to the Nth degree. Yea, you would have been offended by the question I asked my ex about the sex because, perhaps that IS the only thing you have to offer (sex) therefore you would have been offended, and "I WOULD HAVE BEEN THE LAST TO SEE OF YOU". You are just telling me that IS all you have to offer (I did not just ask that question for folly). It is never good to use sex as a weapon!!!!
The more you respond, the deeper I can go.
Who is putting the limits on the sex? What are morals? Who is setting the guidelines? "There is a natural limit to what the body can handle." Whose body? Yours? Everyone knows their own limits.
"What happens if there is no limit to how much sex a person has?"
Then there is just no limit. Your body will tell you.
Like I said, loaded question. It leads to meaningless banter. Witness the two of us.
No, You think that I think Tiger Woods is the best example. He is just an example, that is all.
I did not know we were talking about you. I was keeping it "general".
... it takes a second to say "i love u" but it will take time to get that person into sex.....
...yes....."some"....especially some of those younger and aggressive ones who can't control and balance thier sexual urges....."sex is all in the mind, you know...whatever the mind concieves, the rest of the parts of the body follows"...some people are addicted to sex because they often think about sex too much...and the pleasure it brings....but for those who are mentally and physically occupied by other things..like business, work, etc, and some who, are holding on to thier own personal beliefs and principles, sex is not really thier spice of life.
Those people who get into sex easily are by no means those people who really experienced the real pleasure from thier previous sex experiences....It's human nature....if it "feels nice"....one good turn leads to another....smile and be happy!....
some people are addicted to sex because they often think about sex too much...and the pleasure it brings....but for those who are mentally and physically occupied by other things..like business, work, etc, and some who, are holding on to thier own personal beliefs and principles, sex is not really thier spice of life.
I like the way you say that.
I don't believe, though, that being addicted to sex makes a person mentally fit. Addiction is an illness, no matter what the drug of choice is.
Some people are addicted to sex because it allows for temporary power and control, or it makes them feel "loved" or wanted for the moment, no to mention the temporary get away from reality, you know, feeling good.
The last part of your post i am in total agreement with.
So on that note, the question if sex makes US mentally fit can only really be answered on an individual basis, thus changing he US to YOU.
thanks vanessa lol I'm thinking some people just don't understand - sex as a weapon or an excuse is just plain old inexcusable.
But, if a man I love loves me back and wants to show it through sex...then let's go!! lol
What is it that some people do not understand?
Of course you do realize that sex IS often used as a weapon.
apparently you missed the part where I said
sex as a weapon or an excuse is just plain old inexcusable.
Or, maybe you missed the part where I said
I don't believe I have anything left to say Especially to someone who thinks women are only put on this earth as a sex toy.
Do not be so presumptuous. At no point did I EVER indicate that I thought "women were only put on this earth as a sex toy."
sex as a weapon or an excuse is just plain old inexcusable. I believe that we are in agreement on this statement.
For someone who believes that they have nothing left to say, you sure are saying a lot.
I hope I don't actually need sex to stay mentally fit. I haven't got any in simply AGES!!!! Maybe that excuses my not being able to figure out the missing letters in va***a!
LOL! Just shows you have a clean mind my dear, unlike others we could mention.
I think the problem was, actually, the word "vagina" isn't a dirty word to me. It's a body part, like an arm or leg or eye or penis. They're ALL great when they're working parts!!!
Too much sex, or deeply inappropriate sex, is much more likely to cause mental illness in my opinion. What precisely is a 'lack of sex' anyway? Some people would be happy being taken home once and a while, whilst others are constantly on the look out for sex.
Personally I would rather be somebody who is happy spending time with themselves than somebody who needs to get drunk and find a lay every weekend.
There you go, that's a good answer! The need isn't for sex so much as it is for meaningful and comfortable human companionship, and if that isn't available, to be happy by oneself.
That is precisely what I was trying to convey
In fact, I think that you may have hit the nail on the head. It is not the sex which makes people happy in the medium to long term, but the love or positive emotional attachment which can accompany or associate itself with the activity.
Ah, good, thanks Ryan, glad you aren't PO'd at me on account of the Mark Knowles thread...I really do like Mark, by the way and wasn't intended to bash him publicly or anything like that.
No not at all, I am not that fickle. I actually agree with most of it, the only bit that I cannot condone is people getting called out in a forum title.... I have seen a negative thread with 'ryankett' in the title, and it can really unsettle you... because it is effectively an attempt to get people to gang up on the individual. But Mark is a big boy, he can stick up for himself (and I am sure that he will when he stumbles across the thread).
Making love in the morning is a great way to start of the day !! Exercise , love puts a smile on your dial & everyone wonders what you have been up to !
If you wake up a bit earlier its well worth it ! ( lol too much information ??!)
Couldn't agree with you more, though it's been a LOOOONNNGGG time for me. I just smile at the memories, now! (Having a great long dry spell while getting my head together better! Though just yesterday the plumber propositioned me, I had the good sense to turn him down!)
Sometimes I think sex, just sex, the actual act itself is overrated due to media hype. We think about it too much, and maybe THAT'S unhealthy.
whT? what wer you sed bout being sexy is what?
smart? yur brain needs what? is this gonna be on the test?
love can make you sick... sex, when it is really good, is sick
No of course we don't need it to be mentally fit, but it sure does do a nice job of aleviating stress. It's much more fun than running or yoga or bicycling or cardio, etc.......
is masturbation kinda like the mind's way of jogging on the spot?
hahaha why not kinda has the same effect.
Good on you mate!
You Know Kiwis Don't Give Up yeah?
Sir Ed and Sherpa Tensing Used to argue like this too... all the way to the top
So... Namaste Nepal... A scarf for you Mate
Do we need sex to stay mentally fit? We need sex to stay fit... mentally, physically, and emotionally... period!
To be honest, it doesn't matter what you call it, "making love," "sex," both involves intimacy. Sex is sex. The only thing that distinguishes love from sex is the person you're intimate with. Do you really care about that person? And if you are with your wife or husband, I don't believe that even their intimacy is always what it is suppose to be. Sometimes husbands want to have a quickie before time to go to work, and wives likewise. Every kiss doesn't mean "I love you." Sometimes, the kiss simply means, "good-bye, see you when I get back from work." I will say this, to answer the question, yes and no. Yes, you can stay mentally fit, but there will always be a desire in the physical body for intimacy in one way or another. That was God's gift to the married believers becoming one in the flesh, and through marriage. No, you will not stay mentally fit if the celebate lifestyle wasn't your calling. Very few people can be celebate without periodic sexual deeds sometime in their life. Not everyone is called to do that. Look at the Catholic priests (a whole lot of them), and you hear about what they've been doing to boys. It wasn't their calling to be celebate, the same way, it was not meant for mankind to be alone. The woman is the helper. The man is head of the house. The one can't do without the help of the other. So, the answer in my humble opinion is Yes and No.
For some sex is something that people use to express theirselve's and their love. For some people, sex is something people do for recreation.
Sex is not a physical need. It is so pervasive in society and it seems like we should have it. Many people have gone a long time without sex and they are just fine both physically and mentally.
I don't agree that sex is not a physical need. The desire for sex is a primal instinct, it is part of our genetic makeup, one of our major survival instincts. Sex ensures the survival of the human race.
Whether or not it is an instinct is really immaterial (and I am not going to get into that argument)because it is not a need like food or breathing.
While we yearn to have sex and we want to have it, a person can be mentally fine and happy and in good shape without it.
Society tells us otherwise.
Most people myself included enjoy sex but it is not a need.
For both men and women it helps muscles. Sex is the best form of exercise, because usually during sex you use all the muscles in your body. Arms, legs, abs, etc.
I dont know about everyone else but I do!!! I am misserable if i go to long without it...
Prostate health is a concern as men age. Sex is good for that, apparently. I'm good with that idea.
so who cares whether it makes you smart or not!
I believe that sex is necessary to anyone's healthy mental outlook - but that said, I think things like eating properly, exercising adequately, and taking good care of yourself emotionally and physically are right there at the same level.
Will not having sex make you insane - I doubt it! Although I've never tried going without it - lucky for my husband! I just think that the endorphins released are good for brain stimulation and that is about as technical as I can get on a 'family oriented' site!
Sex is a very pleasureful experience and is a good thing to have in a relationship.
you are right pal.
Some people are more active and want that, others are happy just to cuddle every night with their partner.
..poor tiger...i think a lot of it really helped his mental health...got caught...and he's crying!
Hey everybody!!! Seek out and watch the Seinfeld episode that deals with,"The Master of My Domain." Check out Costansa!
I love great sex. I feel much better when i have a healthy lover. I just like one lover, but not big into commitments. Is that healthy?
I guess it works for me, until I find someone who charms me enough to commit emotionally. I can commit sexually.
It could get messy (not for you of course). The "best" sex could perhaps be the marriage of the physical and the emotional.
The funny part about all of this is that you have people who feel completely empty when they are not having sex, and then feel just as empty when the sex is over.
Not true at all, a needy attitude is there weather you have sex or not. That's something in your soul you have to fix. In the mean time, sex for sex sake is great for you and to you.
What is not true? These people could be getting of on the high released by the chemicals secreted during sex. And then you have the sex addicts.
I know people like this; sex is power.
I think sex is the symptom a sex addict has. I dont think it's the real problem. The real reason is in the head, and way over my head to explain.
That is, get off on the chemicals secreted during sex.
Obviously not because we are at it 7 days a week and I can't remember the way to the bedroom if she is not calling me
Sex releases endorphins- Endorphins make people happy- happy people have better mental health---so YES...SEX ROCKS!

How much sex should a happy and healthy couple have?How is a healthy sex-life defined in a relationship? How much is good, how much is too much or too less? What if the individual choices of two partners don't match?
