Sex is an integral part of any couple’s life. Even doctors acknowledge that a good sex life is important to a healthy well-being. Yet, what about sex and those who are single? Does sex figures importantly also? I have been single for the last 27 years of my life. No, I am not a virgin if that is what you think. But does sex without any semblance of emotional feelings different from those with it? As a single unattached 20-something guy, my sex drive is strong. Is it not that I do not want to find myself a girlfriend, it is because I have not yet have any success with my search so far. Call me picky, call me choosy, the fact remains that I am still single. And being single and young, sex is oftentimes on my mind. Thus, it may come as no surprise that I need outlets to release my sexual needs. Yes, I have visited spas, gone to massage parlors, and also did the bar scene. And yes, I occasionally do score, although scoring at spas may constitute as a given while happy endings at massage parlors fall short of the definition of a sexual encounter. Yet, to a certain extent, this is what is available for guys like me. This past week, I have paid for 2 sexual encounters. The experience wasn’t sexually satisfying as it could be. Both girls were merely going through the motions, faking grunts and moans all the way. They were more like automatons, and the experience wasn’t that great. They won’t accommodate different positions nor allow anything other that straight-up missionary, which is a bummer. And of course, since there were no emotions involved, it is just pure sexual release for me without any intimate connections. To some, this may be enough, but for me, this is becoming stale and leaves a hollow feeling within myself. So, as we are just starting the new year, I am endeavoring to have meaningful sex. This will probably entail having a girlfriend and to commit to a real relationship. Wish me luck in this endeavor, and with this, I can say goodbye to my days of going to spas and massage parlors! P/S: By the way, hello to everyone on this forum. I am a newbie here but the discussion and exchanges here have been enlightening. Thank you all, and keep up the good work.
