What Happens Once The Sex Is Over?

Here's my two cents worth.  For me, sex had better not be everything in a relationship, because what happens when you stop having it?  Get dressed, grab the keys, and drive home again?  Hello?

So, like, sex isn't just what happens in bed, I know (thank God!)  Still, at some point someone has to iron the clean clothes.  My partner and I might enjoy watching some television together, too, or perhaps going for a walk?  How about having a drink once in a while?

Relationships are super-diverse.  Everyone brings their own values and burdens.  There are skeletons in everyone's closet and the floor needs to be waxed every so often.  Not to mention, our clothes eventually get too worn out to be patched any more and we have to 'diversify' the wardrobe.  How does any of this get done in our relationships if all we're doing is having sex? 

The one thing I think is important to remember -- and I hope others agree -- is that, no matter how much you enjoy it or whatever you use it for, sex is just that:  sex.  It is not a relationship.  There's a lot more to it than that.

Sex is an important part of our relationship but nowhere near the top of the list. When you put it first and it start's to wind down over the year's, what then ? Nice to hear another man see it for what it is. Just sex.

You are right its a pity some people can't open their eyes to the facts even with age
