One question we get a lot is, “If you’re in a serious relationship, do you have to have sex?”
No. Sexual intercourse is just ONE way a person can express their sexuality and their feelings toward their partner. In a relationship, both partners should communicate what they want and what their boundaries are. Both partners have the right to abstain from sex or practice safer sex, but if one person is not ready to have sexual intercourse, then the COUPLE is not ready.
