Is Make up Sex a Good or Bad Idea?

Breaking up is hard to do even if you know, at the end of the day, that it was the right decision. Missing the constant affection and companionship of a loved one can take quite a bit of time to get used to. While closing off all contact is the best way to move on, it's much easier said than done, leaving some couples holding on to any lingering connection they can grab.

We have all had moments of weakness whether it be calling your ex after one too many glasses of wine or purposely running into him, whatever the scenario, hoping to spend one more night together. So how do you feel about dragging out the inevitable? Do you feel sharing an intimate night with your ex is a good idea or a bad idea? Some women feel a night of break up sex will close that chapter in her life while others are left guilt ridden and confused. What's your take?

What an incredibly stupid pole question. How about answer #4 It will probably just be great, uninhibted sex with a soon-to-be-friend who you have some history with. You don't haveto be reconciling to have sex and then move on. Hopefully we both realize that the sex and the life together wasn't all that great and move on with no regrets

make up sex for me is after a fight... it would be called reconciliation sex after a break up

bad bad bad. that is assuming that the couple's opinion of sex is one where two people shares a physical/emotional/spiritual connection. if its just the physical act, then it wouldn't really matter in the first place

Haha, the comment above me just said it. Such a bad idea (worst ever) yet I still did it once. Surprisingly it brought the relationship back together, stronger than it used to be just because we were both young, stupid an unexperimented. But probably there were bigger reasons behind, that we couldn't live without each other for too long and that everyone else seemed to not understand us.

it's such a bad idea and we all know it, but that doesn't mean we won't do it!

after a break up it is a nono, if you just fight bring it on (and on and on)!

I agree with Daylyn... in fact I thought that is what the definition of "make up" sex is. Like when you have sex to make up after a quarrel. In any event, if its after you break up, I think its all fine and dandy ONLY if it was a mutual break up. "Party like a rock star, pound like a porn star, play like an all star!"

I think Make up sex is only a good idea if you haven't brokem up. Like if you and your significant other get in a fight, and 20 minutes later you "make up" :)hehehe But in the sense of whether or not its fine AFTER a break up, I say no. There could be too many feelings there, and I think it's easier for someone to get hurt.

There is always a reason that you broke up in the first place and usually one person who initiated the break-up. Having sex after you break up is really just bound to hurt the one who still wants to be together as they will think it means something. And to the other person it is usually just physical. Never a good matter how good it may seem late at night or after a couple of drinks. I speak from my own experience on both sides of this.....
