In brief: Yes

Most people like to have sex for reasons other than getting more exercise.
But it is physical activity, so it will burn calories. If you enjoy and value having a sex life then you'll want to make it an important part of your lifestyle for many reasons.

In brief: Yes

We are sexual beings.
We are attracted to other sexual beings. If you are asexual, and/or others are not attracted to u, a void results. A satisfying lifestyle includes activities that bring pure pleasure without fear and without injury to self or the other. From birth, sensuousness, sexuality, seeking a sexual partner is part of our essence. Enjoy.
