The advice column in this month's GCN had someone asking what to do about his relationship. He is engaged to his partner, and madly loves him, but rarely has sex with him ('once a month at best'). He is cheating on his partner with someone who he has no real interest in on any level, but has great sex with. That got me thinking. If you loved someone - truly loved someone - could you do without sex if it wasn't there. Or, like that man, would you still need some from time to time? Before people start talking about cheating on someone, this thread is not about cheating, it is about how important a factor sex plays. Could you do without sex if you loved someone? Would you break up with someone if the sex life didn't meet your needs?
