Sex. That's one powerful thing/tool/noun/verb... But really what makes sex so seemingly ultimate?
Sometime ago during lunch with two of my girlfriends, one very very sexually active/liberated/adventurous and the other, a virgin. We got to talking about everything from work to money to who's getting married, to who just had a baby, to who's travelling where and who just got a promotion, when in the middle of this very chaste/serious/boring conversation Miss Sexy suddenly asked our other friend "Come, are you still a virgin sef?". To which Miss V replied with an emphatic "Yes!".
I just read on Lifetitude's blog about a 36 year old lady who, like Miss V, has not only never had sex, but never been touched or kissed by a guy. Somewhere between her strict religious upbringing, her duties at church and her long work hours, it's just never happened. She says she doesn't miss sex (you do not miss something you never had) and also doesn't even think about it.
She wants to know if she's normal but what I want to know is if she's really missing something. My friend Miss Sexy said, probably 10 times in one minute to Miss V; "Ahh, you don't know what you're missing".
Are these ladies really missing anything? What makes it so big a deal, really? What exactly is sex for you, and to you; Is sex something you do because it's a pleasurable activity? Or because you need to make babies? Or because it's a bonding experience between you and someone you love?
Does an adult who's never had sex or experienced any sexual activity like kissing or fondling deserve sympathy? And what's the possibility that Miss V and Miss 36 are asexual without knowing it?
Oh, and lastly (the amebo in me just has to ask) can you live comfortably without sex?
