(this is such a cabin fever / "is winter over?" post   Lol )

In a recnet survey, most women are willing to give up sex for a closet full of new apparel (ST.N ladies, is this true)?

Here's a link to the article on the above mentioned survey.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,250713,00.html

So, this has me thinking, would you give up sex for motorcycling?  If so, how long?  

For me, that's a tough call.  But, if I had to choose, I would be willing to give it up for three months.  But, if pressured, I could go a year if that's what it took for me to ride.  Afterall, I've been married for nearly 14 years (happily, I may add).   Inlove

No way would I give up sex. Luckily I don't need to worry about that. I would sooner give up a wife or girlfriend who asked me to give up sex for motorcycling.

I don't believe that survey. None of the women I have ever "dated" would have done that.

This said, I've had two kids and both times went without nookie for a while with little ill effect. And it's not because I have no lust in me -- I'm just a bad-ass.

Well, being camel-like myself, I guess I'm not giving up anything right now. And I can only hope that if/when I do find someone, they'll be on a bike with me, having sex at every little roadside rest stop we can find Banana

Giving up sex for motorcycling has some benefits... I believe that abstinence over certain periods does produce elevated levels of testosterone...

Ok, I get this IM from Thatman:

Thatman: Ihope you aren't one of them.
Thatman: https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,3878.0.html

So I check out the thread....

And I vote.....3 months    Bigsmile

Let me explain.....Yes I am married.  So there are always times when life just gets in the way, though we've not ever gone THAT long without.  But besides all that it would be quite an interesting experiment.  I would give it up to make a statement.  However, it would be an experiment that would affect not only me.....as we know that my dear Thatman can be irritable and we all know how much fun he can be in all these threads.  So probably close to the end of the 2nd month, you all would probably be knocking down my door telling me to do something about it.......So I don't think I'll follow through with the 3 month boycott.   Wink

Besides, the "sex" part isn't the most important piece.....to me....... Rolleyes

Chalk this up as one of the most thought-provoking posts in history...

I'm going to have a chat with my wife. We have a new reason for riding!  Smile

To answer the question: Love Both, Won't give up either.

Also helps that my wife gets, um, excited during a motorcycle ride.

Well. that depends on what your definition of sex is.  Or what your definition of "is" is.   Lol  (Sorry, I couldn't resist)

I did vote for a month.  That is about as long as I have been able to go without anything remotely defined as sex since puberty.  I would be glad to go on a four corners tour for a month and go without sex while on that tour.  A pretty good trade off if you ask me.   Bigsmile

Sadly, I know many people who have given up motorcycles for sex.  It's the old I won't marry you if you continue to ride a motorcycle, or race, or hang out with those dirty motorcycle friends.

Sex seems to always win.  Sad, very sad...

Great question and nice loophole.   Lol

I believe I was thinking a quid pro quo system like your example.  So, if you're willing to give it up for a week of riding then you would have to CONTINUE to give it up for the second week for riding.

On the flip side, I'm not so sure I was thinking of a ramification once you chose to do it.  For example, if I'm willing to go 3 months w/o sex to ride those three months, how long would I have to wait after sex before I could ride again?  

hummmmm.....  I suppose I didn't say you had to be "Master of your Domain" to ride.  So, I could give up sex forever to ride!   Bigok

That's why; Fox News?  C'mon.   Razz

I think it would be more interesting to see if men would give it up for, say, a full set of Snap-On tools and motorcycle lift.
