Love and sexuality
   
Sex without love
Everyone’s sexuality is different. For some people, love is a prerequisite for sex. For others, love isn’t a factor. It depends on the person!

More than a friend, less than a boyfriend or girlfriend. Maybe you’ve decided to have sexual encounters occasionally, or even regularly, with a person you consider a friend but for whom you have no romantic feelings and to whom you have no commitment. In slang terms, some people refer to this type of partner as a “fuckfriend.”

Before getting into this kind of situation, take the time to make sure this is for you. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
  • Your values: Do sexuality and love go together in your mind?
  • Your motivation: What are you looking for? Pleasure? Sexual satisfaction? Hope that romance will bloom?
  • The consequences: What will happen if one of you develops romantic feelings towards the other? Have you talked about preventing pregnancy, STIs (STDs) and HIV/AIDS?
  • Your limits: Do you respect yourself and do you feel respected in this relationship? Do you want your partner not to have sexual relations with other partners? Why? How would you feel if your partner told you he/she was in love with someone else?
On the same wavelength. If everything is clear between the two of you, and you have the same vision of sexuality, you have a better chance of avoiding disappointment and misunderstandings.
