I always share everything of myself with others who are worthy, and I expect the same acknowledgments in return.

However I find some you Pokemon partaker's view that love is special enough that sex should wait for it to be innocent, youthful, and refreshing.

Luckily my boyfriend doesn't think as such.
I have to disagree with you there. You say that any decent girlfriend would have sex with her boyfriend, but what about the younger generation - say 13, 14? Would you hold your argument when we're talking about children? Although, I don't believe that love and sex are the same thing. I believe that people who are very much in love can be in love without having sex. While sex would help the strength of a relationship, I believe that it isn't needed for a relationship to function.
history is interesting.
