The best way a sexual relationship can bring positive result is when both parties have a better understanding of what exactly they want. In the event that you fail to tell your partner what you want, you will later discover that what you expect is entirely different things. One of you may be looking for an adventure, and what the other party seeks is nothing but marriage.
A lot of individuals find it very difficult to differentiate between love, dedication, and sex, or suppose the three are always together. There are different ways to show love, and sex is not part of them as it is not when you have sex that you show your partner that you love them. Sexual relationship with someone does not necessarily indicate that you are in love with them. But sex is important in a relationship unless both parties are not into it at all.
Sex in a determined relationship can make people closer and strengthen their love. Having sex in unsettled relationships can also be fun and encourage people to feel better friends. Whether you have one night or a wedding for fifty years, it is very important that you like, respect and has trust in your partner and that you feel liked, respected and believe in him or her.
Types of Relationships
When venturing into a new relationship and through a relationship (often due to the expected change over time!) Discuss whether you want a relationship that is:
Committed or non-committed: This has to do with whether you want a committed relationship such as a marriage, long-term relationship, child upbringing, sharing finance and/or sharing a home or what you want is a less committed relationship? Friend with benefit is quite common now, you know what kind of benefit it is. The busy work life are affecting people’s relationship, they tend not to go into serious long term relationship but just meet up for sex.
Friendly or Romantic: This involves taking a decision on maybe what you want is a relationship based on friendship or do you prefer a romantic and intimate relationship?
Sexual or non-sexual: Do you expect to have sex with that person? If this is what you want, are there any sexual activities you want to do and others do not want?
Monogamous or non-monogamous: Do you want your relationship to be with that person alone, so that only the two of you have sex with each other, or not so that you and your partner will have sexual intercourse with other people?
Do not forget to check each of these questions separately. All combinations are possible!
Common Relationship Structures
Asexual or non-sexual: Asexual people generally have no sexual feelings and/or choose not to have sexual intercourse. Individuals that are identified as asexual may want emotional relationships, including long-term committed, loving, non sexual partner. Other people do have sexual feelings, but do not want or are not ready to have sexual relations with other people. So, these categories of people are completely or selectively abstinent. Most of them are women, as some of them don’t even experience orgasm before.
Lifetime mutual monogamy: In this type of relationship, every person has only one sex partner in life. Both partners do not have sex with another person; they only have sex with each other.
Mutual Serial Monogamy: This is a relational structure which is common in many adults. When a person is seriously monogamous, they engage in sexual activities with more than one person in their life, but they only maintain a long-term sexual partner, where both partners are monogamous, they only have sex with each other.
Mutual fidelity: This is similar to mutual monogamy, except that there may be more than two people involved in this type of relationship. Groups or families of three, four or more may have sex with others, but do not have sex with people outside the group.
Sexually non-monogamous relationships: Non-monogamous sexual relationships include consensual/honest non-monogamy for example “casual dating,” swinging, polyamory, and open relationships, as well as non-consensual/dishonest non-monogamy, which is also referred to as cheating. There is a wide variety of non-monogamous sexual relationships structures that people can choose in which one or more members of a couple of groups have sexual relations with others.
