    QUESTION: I have always wondered... what would you do if your spouse or so went into a coma? How would you react sexually and/or how long would you wait before giving up and having sex with someone else? (especially since your so isn't really capable of agreeing or disagreeing with an open relationship) Just wondering....

    I would wait at least 2 years, I have a hand and several toys to use in the meantime. And if after the 2 years the doc says no hope for receovery I would likely move on. But since I have never been in that sort of situation (knock on wood) it really is hard to say until you actually have to make that sort of decision.

    Ditto with the knock on wood.

    I can't give a definate time... I just hope it never happens.

    I think when you love someone and see him/her being in a suffering situation you don't think about sex. Love is not self centered, it's about giving to the other person without expecting something in return.

    That said, it's dificult to put a time frame to a hopetetical question, any type of question.
