  • 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.

  • "hot GUYS butt ways SEX bed"
    "bitchy LIFE stuff plus bitchy MOVIES just WOMEN got naked NEW big"
    "tips gils touché
    "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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Sex is a wonderful way for me to express love by bring physical pleasure to my partner, it always makes me feel a closer bond with my partner, and of course it feels good to me. Not, it's not overrated.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Good sex is not overrated. Unfortunately there are many people out there who have no idea what they’re doing because they have a skewed view of sex thanks to porn and Hollywood. The kind of sex porn and Hollywood is portraying is definitely overrated.

  • 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.

  • Yeah, I never understood why is there always such a fuss about sex. I mean, it can be good, sometimes it can be great, but honestly I can find heaps of other things that I enjoy doing more. Sex is promoted like it's the best damn thing in the world, when in fact it's not. At least not for me. Or maybe I just haven't had THE sex yet.

  • Not sex itself, more of what people created it into with the porno shit and the expectations. for example people act like being a virgin in your teen years is a bad thing

  • 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.
