Dear Poll: What Would Make You Give Up Sex?

Who doesn't love having sex? I think it's pretty fair to say that most people do, but what would you do if you were forced to give it up forever?? Gasp, I know! But if that was your reality, what would you demand to have in return for living a sexless life?

Definitely a lifestyle change... such as seeking a religious life... would be the only reason I would give up sex. But not completely give it up! No sex til after marriage of course haha. Luckily Protestant pastors/ministers/reverends can get married. :)

Sometimes I joke around that I would love to trade places with my cats, and just live my life napping, being pampered, and having my every need attended to. The only thing is, they're neutered - so no sex! They do cuddle like crazy, though. :)

I almost chose beauty, but no. I like sex and I don't plan to give it up for anything.

Hm, true love? I'm doing the long distance relationship thing, which has put the breaks on any sex that would have been happening.

Absolutely not! I would have a hard time believe anyone would give it up for anything. It's part of life.

hmm...I think that religious beliefs (either those of yourself or your partner) should be a choice here.I would definitely give up sex for true love, or if my partner strongly believed that sex before marriage was morally wrong.

my boyfriend of 1 1/2 years and i are abstaining from sex until marriage and he even said, 'it doesn't mean i love you any less, but we're not really ready for it at this point' which i totally agree. it's nice not having that pressure and getting to know the different things about him. i think i learn so much more from him daily. i don't think that i would want to have a sexless life, but i definitely don't mind what is going on right now :)

I said true love. Has anyone ever tried the "give up sex completely for a while so you can focus on other parts of your relationship" thing? I'm doing it, and its amazing. It really makes you realize why you love your bf/gf, as in, an emotional not physical way. Because (at least I think) isn't that the most important part of a relationship. When your old and sex isn't so important anymore, what will be left? hopefully that emotional relationship. Sorry to rant a little, lol, I just LOVE having that emotional love/cuddliness without the sexual part at all, between us. Its super amazing. :-D
