You are confusing sex with sexual intimacy. Sex as a physiological need refers to perpetuation of the species. It is sexual intimacy that is a relationship need. Sometimes sexual intimacy includes sex, but not always. It is entirely possible to be intimate with someone without having sex, and yes I do agree intimacy is vital to a marriage. Sexual intimacy can also include hugging, kissing, holding hands, cuddling, and flirting.
