Right. Sex can just be sex. Good, hot, unbelievably exciting (and safe,

of course) sex can be had with strangers. I think the idea that people

need to be mated for life (or at least a little while) in order to enjoy

their own and each other's bodies is quite questionable. What's wrong

with enjoying a friend/stranger/future lover? As long as everybody goes

into in consentingly and with agreeded upon limits (read very differently

for s/m), sex is, quite simply, a lot of fun. My one rule that is _never_

broken: anybody has the right to stop the action at any time for any

reason.

 

Is sex better with the one you love? Sure, it can be, but unfortunately,

it's not always. And who wants to wait around for "the one"? You could

waste your life away doing that. Not for me, thanks. Sex can be an

expression of love, but it can also be just plain fun, a way to burn off

anger, stress, aggression, or even a relief from boredom.
