The question of sex and its role in keeping intimacy alive in relationships is an essential one. Sex is an intimate act, and acting on sexual desires is a great way to bring a couple closer to each other.
The question of just how much sex is needed for that intimacy to be kept at a healthy level.
At the end of the day, there really is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. People who have intimacy and happiness in their relationships without having sex with their partners (or who only engage in sex every once in a while).
This might be due to several reasons:
Low sex drive or libido
If anyone of them has a medical condition
The hey could want to date each other for longer before having sex
A lot of people still believe that sex should only be had after marriage.
The truth is that they don’t mean that the relationship will be devoid of any intimacy at all.
Couples that don’t have sex doesn’t mean that there is no love between the two of you!
The other end of the spectrum; those who see sex as being essential to both their intimacy and the health of their relationships as a whole. Many people would like to have that sexual connection with their partners, and this is completely fine. At the end of the day, the most important thing is that they make decisions together and are both at the moment if they choose to have sex or not. While sex is a sticking point, there are several ways also to develop that intimacy that every relationship needs to survive.
So, sexuality is a spectrum. People who are asexual done experience much of sexual attraction, while allosexual people experience this. Because we all see sex differently, it is possible to have varying views on the role that sex has to play in developing intimacy.
Still, no one is wrong.
