For women who are looking for something deeper than one night stands, quick hook ups and ‘just sex’ in general, this is for you! Sometimes, denying or starving him sex could lead to a more meaningful, long lasting relationship, which eventually leads to true love. This article by Felicity Kay reveals what “leaving sex out of the picture” can do for your relationship.
IT TEACHES YOU TO LEARN TO VALUE YOURSELF.
You know your body is a temple, blah blah, but waiting to have sex teaches us to appreciate that on another level. Your body is a temple. It demands worship and respect. Your emotions, physical sense of self, sexuality, and even orgasms are valuable and you should actively choose who you share them with. Find a worthy worshipper and don’t settle for less!
IT DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T PLAY AROUND.
Not having sex doesn’t mean you can’t date around and get your kicks—in fact, you should! Test the waters and meet as many charming men as you have time for. Learn to get to know potential partners in other, more creative ways. And if you want to test the water physically, it doesn’t have to mean intercourse; you control the limits and what feels right to you.
IT GIVES YOU A SENSE OF POWER.
Being a little fussier about who you sleep with is empowering. You get to make the rules—whether you want to wait seven dates, two months, or until you hear those magical three words, you’re the boss. There’s something wonderfully powerful (and sexy) to letting your voice be heard, even if what you’re saying is no.
