With the increasing pace of life is sex becoming more of a release than an act of love?

  1. Sex like truth, is subjective. As some people are really into food and everything related to it, while some people just eat to not be hungry. Besides, Sex has always been about release. Its one of the best stress busters available naturally. A lot of people try to put labels on it, by calling it an emotional bond or anything, but the truth remains — Sex is a great release.*p**p* *p**p*If you feel sex serves a much bigger purpose other than reproduction and release, good for you, but it would be unfair on other people who love to have sex purely for pleasure if you will try to add love and feelings for it in a general context.*p*

  2. This is quite true. We are rushing so much that sex is becoming mechanical. There is no room for feelings.*p*

  3. Aman I agree,  one's sex life is a clear reflection of his or her relationship with the partner. *p**p*However, if a relationship is platonic, by definition there is no scope for sex, it is all emotion. *p*

  4. We really can't generalize it. It can be both of them at the same time or it can be even neither sometimes. Your sex life is a clear reflection of how happy you're with your partner. If you're in a platonic relationship with someone the of course it becomes an act of a release which doesn't have any emotions attached to it. *p*

  5. Sex to some point is always an act of love. It's a curious amalgation of love n release. Talking from a woman's point of view if she doesn't get her release/ orgasm after two times ove will soon fly out of the window and frustration will set in. It will manifest itself in burning food or terrible migraines and finally investing in a dildo. *p**p*For men there is always release. But also an act of love coupled with pleasure.  at least I hope so. Busy times or stressful times have nothing to do with it , when they have time for release I am sure they can add some love to it.*p*

  6. Mechanised approach to sex has become common. The hectic pace of life is affecting the pace of making love. But with the jugaad/ innovation approach, couples actually manage to introduce love in sex, as much as they can. Hope they manage to save time for it during the weekends and holidays. *p*

  7. It doesnt have to be either or, could at times work as a form of release and at others a means to show intimacy. It entirely depends on the situation but life becoming more fast paced could have increased the frequency of more 'for release' intended sex!*p*

  8. Sex was always both. Depended on the indiviual. It's just that now with technology we are more exposed to sex. Also, with life's fast pace, people are more geared towards immediate pleasures, perhaps. But love is still all around.*p*
