In brief: We seek friendship

Truth is that we do care more about relationships than sex.
By nature romance excites us quickly and we can't always control this, and no two of us have quite the same turn-ons. We all notice how other men look, and many of us do some safe sexual exploring especially as teens; this means nothing. The great majority of us want both a lifelong, loving wife and a rock-solid, always-there buddy system.
