Sex: The point of it? (40)

1 Name: Secret Admirer : 2006-07-31 03:51 ID:R+WW1uHk

I need some good reasons for why ("normal") sex isn't a bad/gross thing one needs to avoid when in a loving relationship with someone, whether it be very long term (even including marriage) or shorter term.

one-night stand reasons need not apply.

None of these reasons either:

  • "(´^ิ౪^ิ) It's fun and feels good! Durrrr" (none of the too selfish, short-term reasons)
  • "To reproduce!" (this thread deals with sex that isn't supposed/likely to spawn offspring)

I would like some practical reasons for why it's actually useful for the relationship, as well as for the people involved with it. I also would like reasons for why jacking off isn't in the same league as sex within a stable and loving relationship (even though jacking off isn't a bad thing to do at all).

Most of you seem to be a clever bunch, I'd be happy and grateful for any help with this issue. I hope it isn't a too tall order.
