  • Yes.

    Sex is not the value of life but this generation got it the other way around. Of course majority would disagree because they all got raised through the same circle and it's part of them. In my perspective; It's a result of the raise of the porn industry and uncontrolled sexual liberation.

    The social values and life principles got exchanged when the generation started to transform through Millennials. New generation's values started to construct around sex more and more. For people like me; it is overrated. Sex is part of life. But for this generation; life is part of sex. Sex is the center of the universe for them. They literally communicate with their genitalia not their brains. It doesn't matter who you are; what is your character or what your name is. All they want is to get sex and let go of each other. Hello = sex. First sex; then we get to know each other if you were good enough. Just a temporarily station of each other's lives. Most of people nowadays are feeling great with this lifestyle and they enjoy it. Dating leads to sex. Interactions at any sort can possibly leads to sex. People literally put sex ahead of everything else in order to determine their relationship. They live and breath sex. They value each other through physical characteristics and the body sizes whether it's butt; breast or penis. They are so drowned into these games. Everything is just sex sex sex.

    I'm out of this circle so it is overrated for me. I've been raised differently. My values and principles are different. My goals and purposes are different. For me; sex is part of life not life part of sex. Sex is not the most important thing in the world. There are far more critical subjects and priorities than sexuality. And my life does not evolves around objectifying others for their body sizes; shapes; physical characteristics and these sort of measurements. For me; it is overrated and these sort of lifestyle people are having is unacceptable and unattractive to me.

    Sex is not everything. Not even the most important thing.

    Good Luck.

  • No. Infact, people these days tend to see it as nothing much, especially in the westren world.

    I mean, sure, sex *is* great fun. But you are giving your body to someone who gives his bodg to you as well, these two people has to worth something to each other enough to do that.

    It should be overrated again. Because we becoming more and more accepting of casual sex partners, like sex is just like playing basketball.

    My point is, sex isn't nothing. It isn't everything either, but it is something pretty big. Not saying you should be some saint, but don't do it with just anyone just because it's "fun".

    The answer is shortly, no. Sex is not overrated. We are seeing it more as nothing than everything these days in the westren world.

  • Yes, sex is definitely overrated. After you’ve had sex a bunch, you will start to lose interest in it especially if the emotional element is lacking. You’ll start to want more out of it, in other words. I’ve always thought casual sex was nothing more than an act to boost one’s ego, specifically men’s. It doesn’t serve a purpose and actually could be more detrimental than beneficial.

  • This is impossible to answer in universal terms, because "#overrated" depends on individual expectations and experiences. Some people assume sex will be mind-blowing but wind up bored or disgusted by it; others don't get what all the fuss is about and then wind up with steam burting out of their ears; still others expect sex to be divine and find it a failure in that regard but still fun.

    Importance of Sex In Your Relationship ↗

    Sex can be a much more passionate experience when you share it with a #meaningful #partner.

    Sex may feel like a mere means of pleasure and fun but there is a lot of good that it can do for your relationship.

    Sex may seem like a physical activity but it has an emotional appeal to it. It causes the body to release oxytocin which is also called the love hormone that will make you feel that you need to love and trust your partner.

    There are also ways to love without sex.

    Check out My Take.

  • No I don't think sex is overrated I think that is overused I think that it's oversaturated in our media and I also think that it's not worth as much as it used to be worth in terms of a relationship base but no it is not overrated

    "summer top wish HAIR feel crazy"

    lmao dunno why I try reading the pic line by line

    And yeah, comparative to the overall glorification and obssession there is over it in society, sex is great don't get me wrong, but its a bit overrated.

    There are quite a few rushes that comes close or even surpass amazing sex. Its definitely not the only feeling worth chasing after.

  • I'm a guy and I have to say that yea... it is. In the long run I've found many women to be the same and there's really nothing new with any particular vagina.

    There's so many single vaginas walking around where I live that it's like meh, maybe another day.

  • Depends on how well developed your emotions are.
    If you had really great sex or not, what it was that did make it stand out.

    Without mutual deep feelings with enough of the right kind of deep conections, it's pretty un profiling and mechanical.
    I must say in this case sex is overrated.

  • No sex is not overrated but with social media, movies etc it can numb people to the love aspect of sex and is creating unrealistic expectations while also blurring the line of abuse and manipulative people by making it seem loving and or tragic. But with the correct person sex is great and its also for both parties pleasure if you're not in it for the love

  • Over rated?

    It can make or break relationships, it can be a major factor in a persons career and employment status, it's a big part of religious beliefs, it's caused men to go war and die over it. Everything is motivated by sex and the constant pursuit of it. Look at porn and dating today... It's well known to be the #1 reason people use the internet...

  • You don't need sex to live and survive. Not everyone has to have it nor seek it. Decide what you want to do and not want to do, your life is yours to decide how you want to live and not how others tell you how to live. Some people will always have the fear of missing out on an experience. While others may simply feel and think that it's not important to them at all, that it just does not matter at all to them.

  • Yes I personally think that sex is over rated when almost everyone is bragging about it and thats the first thing everyone want to talk about or do really what happened to getting to know each other more than smashing on the first or second date? Really it makes those of us men who are more old fashioned seem like bad guys

    • How does it make you seem like bad guys?

    • Because we all get lumped in with the fuckboys that are only looking for a piece of ass to tag even though we don't really seek out women for just sex

  • Yup over rated. Is this all we think about? Yes it feels good and should be enjoyed in moderation but is so primitive. I know many people who go without sex for a while and doesn't bother them but others... they are like pleasure seeking missles with a happy go lucky attitude with simple pleasures in mind only. No wonder I hear us men talk about women like objects all the time.

  • No Sex is not overrated. Regardless of some of the crazy opinions I have read on here that it is.. Sex is actualy underrated and is the key component and foundation of any relationship. Women have been thought to use sex as a control tool over men to get what they want in relationships. They will stop having sex with a man to push a man to act, whether it's getting engaged , going on trip, getting the man to buy them something etc.. A man should never ever stay in a relationship with this type of woman when this happens. Run and run as fast as you can.. I mean , I am talking about real men not the men that posted on here that sex is overrated. Some men like their smart phones and game apps over sex but real men need sex. So again, a woman needs to know how to have sex and enjoy sex with her man. If that is not the case , then you better run.

  • Sexual pleasure is the greatest pleasure in this world. But it fades and gets old like everything else.

    They say guys do everything from taking showers and wearing deodorant to science and architecture just to impress the ladies.

    But once you get some, it's less and less enjoyable every time and you have to add to it to still feel some pleasure apart for the release of tehtion you get after ejaculation.

    And so you add. Some add roleplaying or other kinky stuff. Some move on to other partners until they get fed up again.

    But the best thing to add is a growing relationship. Arguments, compromises, highs and lows. As long as both of us are in it for the long run there will come a point when I don't even care about my own pleasure because I feel her's. And her pleasure is what I want. Same for her.

    When we get there, we don't even need to touch to feel constant orgasm. That connection is BETTER THAN SEX!

  • Yes sex is overrated because the average sex act last for about 10 minutes so then you spend about maybe 1 hour in bed having sex a week if you are lucky so giving you real luck 48 (to make it simple) hours a year. So 2 days with it versus 363 day without it. So let me ask if you had to give up one part of life what would you give up 48 hour having sex or 8,712 hours without sex.

  • Yeah, i've met lots of guys and girls who said they regret giving away their virginity because sex wasn't worth it at all, they said it's very overrated. In my opinion though, the more you do it, the more overrated ur gonna find it, that's why i'm against hookup culture, the person has sex with countless people and then stops to 'settle down' but he won't give his real girlfriend any good sex because he's already felt muvh better sex with many other people

  • Its very important in a relationship but that's sex, I can live without it, it shouldn't matter as much as it does in society. Where as making love is needed as its very passionate and it creates a bond with your partner. Its all healthy for the body but I think many good overboard with it all the time.

  • If anyone thinks sex is overrated that aren't doing it right. Sex is a great way to strengthen the bonds of a relationship using one of the most intimate acts 2 people can have together. I could easily spent 10-20% of my day on sex with a girl I really like

  • Sex is one of the most fundamental way of life, ensuring the existence of any species and the most primal expression of any living thing. It's simply reproduction. So how is that overrated?

    The media's portrayal of sex, in the industries respectively gives it a sense of it being overrated. However, bad publicity is still publicity no matter how you view it. Don't let the media cloud your judgement.

    Think about gender expectations too, males are usually seen as the ones to take the lead because of their masculinity and females are seen the more vulnerable gender, this perpetuates certain stereotypes amongst society. Affecting laws and policies, look the way both genders function in a society. This influence the way we view genders and sex related issues.

    Sex is subjective, to men and women alike, how do you define sex as an individual? To some it's the union of two persons in love, to some it's self exploration, to some, sex doesn't matter. Sex is about self and identity, the process is then carried out to reflect both partners. Then you have a relationship of a few kinds.

    So to me, sex is not overrated, because I know what it means to me.

  • Sex isn't overrated, people just have varying sex drives. Someone who is asexual or has a low sex drive is going to find sex less satisfying then someone with a high sex drive. That doesn't make it overrated it just means you place a different value on it, and there is nothing wrong with that. But it also doesn't make somebody wrong for placing a higher value on it either.

  • The first few times I had sex, I could not figure out what was the big deal about it. Let alone figure out why people would risk their marriage or careers over it. I just did not get it.

    So I stopped having sex for a few years since I realized I must be missing something about it.

    And then I tried sex again and realized that I could understand it now.

    Maybe you are just not ready for sex? That is OK, if that is true.

  • I had already experienced heavy petting with both girls and boys.
    And had great orgasms generally, not always but I was happy with them.

    When I had intercourse with a guy I was very disappointed and my first idea was it was very overrated. But it was not the right guy.

    Later on, with other boys, I found it was more satisfying than just petting.

  • In what context? Are you asking if the media makes too big a deal, if society places too much pressure, or if in general it just ain't that great?

    I personally love sex, couldn't be happy without it, and I love it when a man has a seemingly insatiable sex drive.

    The only reason media is showing it more is because people are finally beginning to realize that sex isn't something to fear or shame, and that women enjoy it as much as men.

    My only complaint is abstinence only education. Teaching avoidance doesn't educate individuals on safe ways to handle what is fast becoming an acceptable facet of teen romances.

    We should preach abstinence while teaching safe practice. I've never been pregnant, or had std in my life because of the classes I was required to take when I was in school.

    • It's easy for a girl to get laid, it's hard for a guy, guys have to put in all the effort and many times can't get a single girl to show interest in them, girls just have to look attractive and they've got endless options and can act any way they want knowing that they'll still have options regardless
