Is companionship synonymous with sex?
Some persons believe that to have a companion means you must indulge in intimacy. Is that so? What are your thoughts?
the first thing I thought of when I read your question was my dog, Shadrack, who is the best companion I have ever had!!! lololol...Herein lies the conflict for me...for I DO NOT include, nor wish to, at this stage of my game, sex into the companionship package...perhaps because I have not met the "right one", I don't know...but sexual intimacy is a sacred thing to be shared between two deeply committed people who are in love...I cannot give myself in this way without the emotional intimacy that it deserves...sexual union between two people committed in love is truly a holy thing,physically, emotionally, and spiritually... anything less cheapens it. That is just me...hence, I walk a lonely path, for most folks expect sex should be part of the package... so there it is! I will start ducking now so I don't get hit with any rotten tomatoes or rocks! Great question!
tnderhrt23 - I love your response. It is fantabulous! At this stage, we can easily leave out Shadrack . He will always be faithful, that is what I love about animals especially dogs. However, I was speaking about human companionship, which you covered quite nicely. Hats off to you!
Companionship is the need to be in the company of another but is most often used in the context of the elderly and their need to connect to others in the outside world if confined in a nursery home for an example. Sex has much more intimate connations and denotes compatibility more so than companionship. Sure sex places one in companionship with the other but most often the association is physical more so then keeping company as in the case of the elderly.

Is sex more powerful than GOD?From my life learning's, it looks like sex wins. I have seen devoted Christians cheat, multiple partners. I thought this was all forbidden according to GOD so to me sex is more powerful.

Do you think in general that men crave more sexual intimacy than women?

Here's the deal.For the women who withhold intimacy to see if the guy will respect you for "who you are" instead of as an 'intimacy object' which he can then seek from other girls once he gets it from you...How is he going to respect you for 'who you are' when you withhold intimacy?No...

Do you think promiscuity and low self-esteem go hand in hand?I have seen many woman randomly give their most precious possession (their bodies) to anyone that would take it. I'm not one to police ANYONE'S sex life, but I can't understand why a woman would risk pregnancy, communicable diseases, and...
