you know i have to agree with you. a little. things get so pent-up over time that you can't think straight, but what i'm trying to say and have felt for years is that you really don't 'need' it.
there was a time when i could go months and months without sex nor even have the need to masturbate. the older i get, the weaker i get and the less i can control myself from some sort of sexual release. i always thought it would be the opposite.
