Hello Dr. Devore,

I am in my mid-20s and not interested in intercourse–does that make me strange? I love foreplay, body contact and all sorts of intimacy but sexual intercourse is just not appealing to me. Yes I have had sex of course but I would much rather have foreplay than sex–I was wondering what do you make of this?


Dr. Tiger Responds:

That you have a preference for the closeness of foreplay and the enjoyment of all the aspects of sex that don’t include intercourse is not a problem. You are clear that if intercourse was something you needed to do for a purpose, like getting your wife pregnant, that you could do it, its just isn’t your preference. If you had a fear of intercourse or could not engage in it, then there would be problem.
