Should Sheldon Ever Sleep With Amy

Recommended Posts

This is a question that has been bugging me my answer split into yes and no yes bacause if Amy gets pregnant it would be intresting to see how Sheldon reacts and a version of Amy and Sheldon together.

No because it might ruin the show and Sheldon.

Your Opinions?

Given that Sheldon's genitals are "functional and aesthetically pleasing" it seems a shame to waste them.

:D

Not unless it's one of those "phew, it was only a dream!" episodes. But with that as an excuse/escape, it would definitely be a jump-the-shark moment. Something they might want to hold off on until they're ready to wind things down and wrap up production. But who knows where the characters might be by then. I think it would go against his character a great deal were he to actually go through with sex like the other three guys.

He does seem to be showing her a bit more affection lately, if not romantically then at least in a innocent, kindred spirit, best-buds sort of way.

For me, that wasn't jumping the shark since it was still in line with both of their personalities. They have both already shown in previous episodes that each of them can get too drunk and let their sexual desires get the best of them, only to awaken with little to no knowledge of the night before. I don't feel that that instance of Penny and Raj was nearly as surprising as a sexual episode between Sheldon and Amy might be. Amy has been written to be somewhat of a sexual wild card whose appetites outweigh her opportunities but Sheldon is still too far reserved in regards to any situation that might call for physical contact. If he were to submit to Amy's advances it would be too different a character than what we currently know him as. They would have to have several episodes leading up to it, for me to buy it. But given the events of the most recent episode, there is solid evidence that Sheldon CAN be changed.

I'm not 100% against the idea truthfully, I just think it would require the utmost of care. That's just me and my opinion though.

Maybe a couple of seasons from now, yeah. Characters develop over time and realise new things. He might realise that he likes kids and he might want to start a family, or he might realise he needs a heir to continue his work when he's not around. He claimed it was a waste to have sex with someone for reasons other than reproduction, not a waste to start a family. I think Sheldon would want that at some point of his life.

No way. I don't like the idea of Amy-Sheldon. It's weird. They're too much alike but...Sheldon's so much better.

I think Sheldon's character needs someone who would challenge him, not just with the occasional dull conversation like Amy...but creatively, emotionally, and maybe even...hormonally? :) He needs someone who is his opposite. Opposites attract. He needs someone to compliment him like Penny did with Leonard. Plus it would be a LOT more interesting than Sheldon-Amy.

BUT with that said, I do hope that one day his character does end up with someone...just not Amy.

No. Although Sheldon offered up to Amy the idea of "copulating", it was more of a curiosity rather than a hormone driven need. Sheldon seems really reserved on the idea of sex, probably because of all the germ contamination involved. ;) Amy is obvious much more sexually conscious, with all the sexual innuendo thrown about in her quips and her advances on Sheldon a few times. She's a bit of a nasty person in some ways. I know Sheldon has a crude side to him as well, due in part to his social ineptness, but he's more harmless than Amy. So in the end... no, I'd rather not see Sheldon and Amy go beyond just casual friendship.

I wouldn't mind seeing Sheldon experiment a little more and let himself go, perhaps making out with Amy at some point... but stopping short of coitus. I'd also like to see him provide a shoulder for Amy as she deals with a terrible break-up. I think she could help advance his social education, in spite of her dysfunctional nature.

Yes, I think their relationship should progress to perhaps the point of making out, but not sex. If that happened, Sheldon just wouldn't be Sheldon any more. I like the idea of him becoming attracted to someone who is a polar opposite, though. A bit like Amy's reaction to Zack. Something that sneaks up and takes him completely unawares.

Yes , I understand the complex sheldon but he is but human and science proves you cant beat your natural instinct not just yet but i think sheldon should fell jelousy , then they kiss and then sheldon likes it but dosnt want to admit it then amy should become frisky and sheldon willing finds a guy to have " coitus " with someone but he should stop it at the last moment and say he " loves her " and have sex then in the morning he should wake up and go INTERESTING ;D

Absolutely not.

I often see people using the argument in favor of Sheldon and Amy having sex that Sheldon is "human." Uh, what? Does that mean someone who isn't interested in sex is less human than the rest of us? What a flimsy argument.

In addition to Sheldon's utter disinterest in sex, the writers have infantilized him, so it'd be extremely uncomfortable (for me) to imagine him having sex. Funnily enough, I think sex would have been more believable in the earlier seasons. It's as if his character has regressed.

It's as if his character has regressed.

I blame Season 3 for that. His interactions with his mother are the first taste in Season 1 but Season 3 was when they made him more childlike.

In Ep. 7 The Guitarist Amplification'.

He runs away when there are arguments around him. Penny and Leonard have to go and find him and he's sitting on the comic book shop floor. Penny buys him a robot and comic books and talks to him like he's her son.

Ep. 8

The Adhesive Duck Deficiency'

They sing the soft kitty round. I know 'soft kitty' is well liked by fans and I like it too, but I feel its overuse has made him seem very undeveloped.

In Ep.13

The Bozeman Reaction

After the burglary he can't sleep alone in the apartment and wants to stay with Penny and Leonard and climbs in to Leonards' room.

In Ep. 14

The Einstein Approximation

Bernadette makes him go to bed when he's stuck on an equation, talking to him like he's a little kid. Later he gets in the ballpit and Leonard can't get him out.

In Ep. 20

The Spaghetti Catalyst

Penny takes him to disneyland. They both discuss him like he's their child.

Ep. 21

The Plimpton Stimulation

Sheldon says "she's my friend and you're playing with her!" and runs off to his room when he finds out Leonard had sex with his Dr Plimpton.

These are the examples I can think of, but there may be more particularly in this season. I like many of the episodes but they did regress him emotionally. Without addressing his emotional growth sex would seem wrong to me as well. They would need to take him back to the more mature style Sheldon of S1 and 2 or it won't work. Maybe this is what they have in mind next season. Quite frankly, while I found many of those episodes entertaining and funny I would welcome them making Sheldon more mature anyway.

I do think some of the episodes listed above were good in showing more about Sheldon as he was growing up, how someone like him handles a crisis, and how he is on the verge of a total breakdown (3x7, 3x8, and 3x14). My personal opinion, I think those were great episodes in walking that line between child and innocent-genius. BUT some of them pushed him over the edge.

Personally, there were certain episodes that I remember watching that I just shook my head at when Sheldon acted like a child. Episode 3x20... I see where they were going with this and I found it amusing that they referred to him like THEIR child since he was in a tug of war. But for me it was that scene where Penny and Sheldon return from disneyland that somehow felt like it was less about poking fun and more about stating how much of a child sheldon is. I'm not sure if I'm wording this right but I don't think they should have added that last scene there.

Anyways, there were a lot of child-like things that I don't think should have been in the season 5. For me, it was the worst season for changing Sheldon into a child. The Ornithobia Diffusion (5x9) - Sheldon and the bird, drawing pictures of a cat? Trying to shoo it away? Really? Um...no. Sorry but after that scene it was hard to see him as an adult. Even a quirky one. Another example is when Sheldon tries to sneak into work wearing the 'disguise' (The hat/hair)...that was something a child would do. In (5x3) the Pulled Groin Extrapolation there's that scene with Sheldon putting the train in his mouth. Need I say more?

I definitely feel that at this point, they shouldn't have Sheldon having sex with ANYONE. It would definitely be too uncomfortable to watch. Maybe if they cut out a lot of the random child-like antics they've been using all season 5 and get back to the Season 1-2 Sheldon then MAYBE in a couple years they would have evolved him enough to consider it.

I'm not actually expecting coitus because the only thing I'm focused on is for Sheldon to initiate his first kiss with Amy. I mean once he's passed the point where he experiments with kissing/hugging/cuddling hopefully he'll move on into something else.

I think as a Shamy shipper, it's still quite surprising to watch Sheldon have fantasies and getting turned on by his little vixen. I mean, TLA is my favorite of all the Shamy episodes. I don't know what non-shippers think about what happened in it but I thought it was the funniest episode. I find it amusing and many Shamy shippers disapproved of the idea of Sheldon engaging in any sort of physical activity but eventually does realize how much they enjoy it once they see it on screen. But they're pretty much on board with some physical stuff, and I'm not so sure about the coitus though. It's just difficult to imagine... ya' know cause it's Sheldon. And it's a possible scenario that seems unlikely, but really isn't.

Anyways, I worked on an mv and used clips of Chuck and Bill to explain Sheldon's situation, and Chuck said he didn't want Sheldon to miss out on living his life on his own terms. At first, I thought Chuck meant the fans made him aware that Sheldon is missing out on experiences he's never been through which made me think that Sheldon probably lived his entire adult life only one way and he doesn't give himself too many options because he makes rules for himself. So I think maybe it's okay for him go to that place because he's missing out on something he might like and if he does find it intriguing then he could learn to experiment with it. I don't know, he isn't necessarily living life to the fullest atm and it's little more interesting to see him slowly dive into it.

Good post snow*flower.

I agree with you that even for shippers is difficult to imagine a likely scenario for them to get that physical.

But you are right, he may have child-like regressions very oftenly, but in TLA, describing his fantasy and then looking at her from the couch and begging her to "not stop" in the doctor game, well, he was not that childish, maybe he is finally entering puberty? :icon_mrgreen:

sarah, snowflower - I agree, and I think the show is with us in this matter. Remember that Penny used the term 'puberty' with reference to Sheldon and his romantic possibilities, right on the show. We may be right on where they're going with this. :)

I honestly thing that despite his resistance to his mother's religious beliefs, Sheldon still carries a lot of old fashion traditonal values about how men are supposed to treat women. So with that said I think Sheldon won't have sex with Amy until after they are married because number one he won't want to piss of his mother because its just like when Penny threatened to tell her about him making a baby with Amy in a petri dish. Sheldon realized his mom would be mad if he had sexual relations without marrying first so I think that he will wait until his honeymoon for that unless one of their following were to happen.

1. He got really really super drunk or high and Amy was too and they both woke up the next morning in bed together not remembering what they did. But they already did that with Penny/Raj so I hope they dont do it to Shamy.

or

2. It happens in a dream in which case it could be Amy once again hiding in bathroom with Gerad imagining she's with Sheldon instead. This could be funny cause they would make us all wonder what IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING!! and then we know its not real when we see Amy in bathroom brushing her teeth :icon_lol:

or

Sheldon as he is going through puberty experiences his first wet dream in bed involving Amy dressed up as Princess Leia and they are about to do it, but then SHeldon is woken up by Penny and he freaks out because his sheets are wet and things get awkward real fast after that xD.

But as for actual sex, I don't think it should happen til the very last season of show maybe even the finale episode if Shamy does actually end up getting married then after Amy drags Sheldon off to bed..it flashes foward several years in future where they have two super genius kids and they live next door to Penny and Leonard who are married also with kids of their own too.

I know that's not the "gist" of the question, but, do you know what would be interesting? To see them actually sleeping together (and I mean, just sleeping, 'platonically', if you want)

I remember Amy mentioned in season 4 that she was prone to "night terrors", it would be fun if, for some circumstance they are forced to share a room (two beds initially) and then Amy suffers a crisis and Sheldon finds himself obliged to comfort her or something like that. She needs (or pretends to need :icon_cheesygrin:) to be near him to calm down, and then they fall asleep.

Of course, someone would find them together in the morning for the necessary confussion to happen :icon_wink:

Very interesting. This scenario has actually been the setting for more than one fan-fic. :)

If Sheldon felt obliged to comfort Amy should she have night terrors (which I'm 100% sure he would), he'd better watch out---Penny got bitten when she tried...LOL

This is what I was thinking when I saw this thread. There could be some comedic value in having Amy and Sheldon just spending the night together in the same bed or room but I have no interest in them engaging in coitus.

And nice idea with the night terrors.

A better way would be to have them share a bed one night, and think they had sex, but then later find out they didn't actually do it right.

Penny: Sheldon and Amy had sex!

Raj: Did they know that's what they were doing when they were doing it?
