'You can't keep a relationship without sex' - Actress Tope Osoba

Below is what the fast rising Yoruba actress said when asked if she believed sex is only for married couples...
I think sex is meant to be enjoyed by two people who have serious feeling for each other. Sex is good, it is there for two lovers to enjoy themselves and share the secrets of their hearts.
On whether one should engage in premarital sex or not, I would say, yes. Premarital sex is okay as long as it is a safe sex. Our society allows  it. These days, you can hardly keep a relationship going without sex.
Who agrees with this statement? If you decide to zip up, you can't keep a relationship?
