Sex is NOT a way to give love, unless she wants it too.

No woman should give sex when she doesn´t want to, because that would make her nothing more than a sex toy.

Woman up, Laurie.

There was an amusing article by Caitlin Flanagan in the New Yorker, Jan/Feb 2003 issue, "The Wifely Duty:
Marriage used to provide access to sex. Now it provides access to celibacy", which commented on your sentiment as follows:

"To many contemporary women, however, the notion that sex might have any function other than personal fulfillment (and the occasional bit of carefully scheduled baby making) is a violation of the very tenets of the sexual revolution that so deeply shaped their attitudes on such matters. Under these conditions, pity the poor married man hoping to get a bit of comfort from the wife at day's end. He must somehow seduce a woman who is economically independent of him, bone tired, philosophically disinclined to have sex unless she is jolly well in the mood, numbingly familiar with his every sexual maneuver, and still doing a slow burn over his failure to wipe down the countertops and fold the dish towel after cooking the kids' dinner. He can hardly be blamed for opting instead to check his e-mail, catch a few minutes of SportsCenter, and call it a night."
