I find love more important to me than sex. Love gives a more special bond in relationships, than sex. To know you have the affection of someone you hold dear to your heart gives a very soothing feeling. Also, love can bring people closer together. With love, you could look past sex. For example, I wouldn't mind having a life partner who has a disease or illness that doesn't grant him or her safe sex. As long as I loved that person, I wouldn't care. Sex, however, can be a important part of a relationship if the relationship is made from love. However, sex wouldn't have much meaning if it was just used for ones perverted desires. To my knowledge, sex is either used for the purpose of when two people love each other and they want to prove how much they love each other or when the people involved in a sexual relationship feel like having fun.
