The desire for a close relationship (intimacy) with another human being is a given for every one of us on this planet - it is something that we strive for (with the exception of hermits!).
The desire for sex is a pure physical desire - we are looking a physical release of sexual energy. This could be with someone we seek intimacy with or, frankly, it could be with a complete stranger we only met 5 minutes ago.

its all I want
its a natural feat we share with other male animals.. have as much sex as possible with as many as possible, and fight the competition
As one gets older they see that MORE is needed to maintain a healthy relationship. A "connection". Mind not body. Sex should come from a bond that one loving person has for another. It's damn near impossible for intimacy to come from sex. That's not intimacy, that's sex.
Do I practice what I'm preaching? Yup. I've been single for 4 years. I've also been celibate for 4 years.
