The subject of sex might be a bit taboo for a lot of people to talk about, but the truth is that it’s something that impacts everyone. For singles, sex can be an incredibly powerful tool for meeting new people and forging relationships if used properly. For married couples or those in committed relationships, however, it can become one of the biggest obstacles between partners if its use isn’t managed properly.

No matter what your particular situation is like though, sex does play an important role for everyone – especially since most people simply aren’t satisfied with their romantic lives without it. Without having some form of physical fulfillment on at least occasion sexual tension can quickly build up and begin to create issues that no one wants to deal with.

This collection of sex quotes is an attempt to help you discover new, exciting angles for love and intimacy.

However, sex is an enjoyable aspect of relationships for many people so long as both parties consent and engage in consensual activity free from abuse or manipulation.

Sex can bring joy and pleasure when shared between loving partners in a kind, passionate and consensual way. How you choose to express your sexuality in your private life is totally up to you; just remember to stay healthy by practicing safer sex at all times.
