    Well, no relationship is the same, everybody is different, there for the way they interact, is different,ntherefore there is no textbook answer,no black and white about it,,, there is always grey area, What is important is there is respect, understanding balance and communication, when it comes to the physical aspect of it,
      thats the best answer i can come up with

    How important is that person to you, that should be the only thing you should focus on.  How can you maintain as well as keep this bond outside of sex?  You can engage in sex with anyone.  9 times out of ten people will have sex with someone they don't like and maybe even can't stand.  So why would sex be the main focus of a "relationship" with someone who you claim is important to you.  It's for you to cherish the person as well as the quality time that is spent with them, not an "act" that can be performed with anyone.  Sex/Intimacy is important but not the fore front of importance when someone is important......Maintaining that special connection should be your focus for if that connection fades or is broken due to careless, recklessness or simple behavior, there is nothing that will simply mend or replace it.  To be quite frank when someone is important to you  frivolous acts in no way takes precedence in the relationship.

    To people in their early 2o's I would say it is extremely important, to people in their 60's or 70's not nearly as important. And this is for both physical and psychological reasons. Sex in general is more important to males than females, and this is for biological reasons more than anything else.

    For anyone under the age of 90, sex is an essential part of a relationship.  Remember, sexual gratification is a need...not a want.
