Having sex to enjoy physical pleasure isn’t in itself a good or a bad thing. By itself, it’s not the best reason. For one, there are many ways to experience physical pleasure that do not involve having sex. However, if the desire for physical pleasure is not the sole reason if it’s present, but alongside all the components of sexual readiness discussed, then it can be part of a healthy decision to have sex.
To feel mature that is, like an adult
What is maturity? It’s an advanced state of emotional and mental development. Having sex will not make you mature. In fact, one of the key components of maturity is responsible decision-making. Being an adult is much more about the choices you make and the values you establish than about isolated actions. Just as putting on a business suit or carrying a briefcase around doesn’t mean you have a career, having sex won’t make you more mature.
Because you have before
Participants who had sexual experience reported pressure from their partners as a reason behind their choice to have sex. Who doesn’t want the person they like or love to be happy? Of course, that doesn’t mean we should do anything to achieve this result. Your decision to see more as concerns sex should come from you. If the happiness you seek to obtain is only your partner’s, then you’re basing your decision solely on factors outside yourself and not paying enough attention to the other half of the encounter.
Intimacy is a special feeling of closeness shared between two people. Most romantic couples strive for some level of intimacy in their relationships; this can be achieved through physical means such as sex, cuddling, kissing or hand-holding as well as emotional means, such as the sharing of thoughts, feelings and values verbally.
