A man's greatest need?


Do men want respect more than sex, or is the need for sex greater than their desire to be respected?

My mind has been bombarded with this particular question for a while now.

Some say respect is more important to men than sex, some say the reverse is the case.

Clergy woman and influential life coach, Rev. [Mrs.] Funke Felix Adejumo believes respect is the thing a man needs most.

She’s been quoted saying, “The greatest need of a man is not sex; he can get that from a prostitute… It’s not food; he can get that from any good restaurant. A man’s greatest need is respect, particularly public respect…”

Tara Fela-Durotoye also said something similar to that in a recent interview with Pulse.

Several other persons have come out to say that men would rather be respected than have sex.

But then, there are other people who believe that this isn’t true. Sex, they say, is more important to men than respect.

Late Myles Munroe says sex is a man’s greatest need. In the video below he breaks down the need for men to always engage in sexual activity.
