I know that.
I had a lover for 4-6 years who was almost completely sexual. We got along well, but we were way way too busy in our individual lives for much more than that-and we had GREAT sexual chemistry.
At the same time, he wasn't part of my family.
I also had a beloved part of my family step backward into a role that was primarily sexual. Nothing about her was ever temporary, short-lived or shallow to me. Though the relationship ended, my love, adoration and respect for her did not, will not.
