Can a relationship last and stay intimate without having sex? This is something that many teens deal with today. Growing up with a steady partner, most people feel that if you have established a level of comfort with your mate then sex should not be a problem. However that is not always the case!
Does it make a girl lame for not giving it up to her boyfriend even after dating for a long period of time? No. A person should not be forced or manipulated into having sex if they are not yet ready. Instead you can still be close to your partner by hugging, cuddling, kissing, and even spooning. These are some other ways to be intimate without engaging in sex.
Some other non-sexual activities to engage in to keep the relationship healthy and stimulating include: Cooking and learning new recipes together to sharpen your cooking skills. Some of the best communication and conversation is often times done while eating or preparing food; and any form of competitive games also makes for a healthy relationship. Whether it is a simple card game, going bowling, playing laser tag or virtual tennis on Nintendo wii. Being able to obtain the upper hand in a challenge will most certainly keep your mind occupied.
Of course trying to keep one’s mind off sex, especially at a young age when temptation and hormones are so high, is easier said than done. However it is possible and these are two ways to enjoy each other’s time and company instead of each other’s body.
