[Spoilers] Discussion Topic: Season 9 in Season 9 Posted May 24, 2016 1 hour ago, April said: The conversation wasn't about sex and his fears at that point so I'm sorry to say but I think your premise is faulty. It's a separate scene early in the episode and he was contemplating spending time with Amy on her birthday instead of going to the movie. It had nothing to do with sex cause he hadn't even made that decision yet. The conversation you are thinking about only comes later. Erm, yeah, it was about sex. Mayim thinks so too... 43 minutes ago, Lady in Red said: In 9x11 Sheldon realizes that he should spend his limited time on Earth to be with Amy, instead of watching Star Wars. Furthermore, in one of the interviews with Mayim about Opening Night, she mentions that Sheldon was so excited about coming up with the idea to have sex, that he immediately phones Amy in the middle of the night. Of course, during the conversation he realizes that calling her wasn't the smartest idea, and rings off quickly. But, I think this was one of the most romantic moments in the evolution of this character. As I said, there are no life threatening reasons why this should be Amy's last birthday, so no reason for any limitations. The limitation relates to sex. Do you really think Sheldon's actions were entirely selfless? He has no interest in sex.
