I said it wasn’t all about sex not that sex wasn’t involved. Men generally do want sex and obviously the more the better. Sex is one way that men feel connected to their partner.
Men also feel appreciated and wanted when they have sex with their partner. So for men, sex provides the first four items on our list plus physical pleasure that allows men to focus totally on the present moment. In a new relationship the sex tends to be a lot more frequent. At least initially!
