    well, just immagine being given that choice.
    And ONLY that choice - no ifs or buts - what path would you choose and why?

      If I were younger man I would probably go with a different answer, but the satisfaction of being with someone that you truly love is in my opinion much more satisfying than just sex.

    Love without sex? Depends on how you define sex. One can be intimate without having sex. I think in both cases you can't have either without intimacy, and given the choice I'd choose love because love is simple more rare, more precious, more valuable, and more satisfying.

      I have a friend who's husband became paralyzed from the neck down 2 weeks after they got married, as the result of a horrific car accident and they are so deeply amazingly in love....maybe its becuase I am a girl, I dont know, but I would choose that kind of lasting love over any physical thing in a heartbeat.

    Love without sex...I don't know that I'd be capable of sex without love, but to love and be loved is much more precious than temporary physical pleasure. Of course, my SO is considerably older than me, so there's a good chance that I will eventually have to experience love without sex, and I know I'd much rather be with him and celibate than not with him at all. Besides, I know where to buy more batteries tongue.

    That's the thing - I know it's a very, VERY hard choice, especially when you get into some situation where it's inevitable..

    And that's why I asked that question in the first place.

    Love without sex please, I long for that rue deep everlasting love and all that gushy stuff

    BUT

    I do wonder if given the choice- I'd be okay because I'm a virgin so I don't feel like I have needs to satisfy, even though I get HORNY.

    Does that make sense?

    I think if I was having sex it might be sex without love, but like I said I long to be in love so erm hmm

    Sex without love, ONLY.
    Love is an illusion we create to justify our actions, no more.
