ask lena: does sex bring you closer? or make him bored?

feminist sexiness!

    very good video. it really depends on the couple. it brings husbands & wives closer, for sure. so it can do the same thing for unmarried couples. however, it's a big risk– there are no guarantees. i wouldnt suggest it. especially in a relationship that's not entirely stable. if you've been together for a long time– at least a year– and are 100% sure he's committed emotionally & not just physically, well, it's your choice. but i'd HIGHLY reccomend against it, especially if those requirements aren't met. just think it through really well before you do anything.
