Should Sheldon Ever Sleep With Amy


Recommended Posts

I think they need to be way more comfortable with each other physically first. Eventually I would like them to - after a slow, gradual intimacy increase. It really will be a huge step for Sheldon, it wouldn't be realistic if it happened tomorrow. Unless Amy just gets him drunk and ties him to the bedposts.

Even then, I don't think Sheldon would turn into a Howard! He'd still be "oh what again? But I have a headache..."

Oh of course, that's a given that they need to start showing him having sexual desires, I'm in no way advocating they have sex with him still being aloof and innocent!** But considering the ratings th

Did Ar really just use the wub emoticon?!  Talk about character development!

IMO I do think that marriage will happen probably before sex, but not because of the religious aspect, or because his mother would want it. I think Sheldon would be a fan of marriage, because marri

Being the shipper that I am... and being impatient... When I hear Shamy sex in S8 I'm like "YEAAAHHHH!!!!"

 

But if I'm being realistic, I agree it probably won't happen this season already. That's a big step. Give it time, they'll get there. They do need to reconnect a little and grow a little in their intimacy. Now depending how the season goes, I could still see it at the end of S8. Potentially. Ok my shipper heart is speaking for me again.... I just hope the jokes on it kind of slow down a little. 

 

I don't want TPTB just not doing it because they think coitus is their endgame. There is so much to expand on on the way to/after coitus happens. They're still in an incredibly unique relationship, that's what makes them loved by so many. Every milestone together is bound to be a big moment.

Agreed the idea of Sheldon having coitus with any female is kinda creepy and a tad contrived. Personally i dont care either way if Shamy stay together, break up, have coitus e.t.c. I think the masses are just interested in the comedy, and how Shamy being an interesting couple dynamic that adds to it. Outside the Shamy fandom or ff world, i dont think anyone is holding out for it generally. I also think apart from Sheldon telling Lenny he hasent ruled it out, and that kiss. Does not neccessarily guarentee they well ever go their. They have also dragged it out so much, that it well be just anti-climatic. I dont think Amy or Sheldom has any clue when it comes to articulating their emotions, and thats endering but physically the very idea feels creepy and so awkward lol. Like two robots going at it haha, just cant see it ever tbh.

I simply cannot imagine Sheldon having sex. It creeps me out a little just trying to picture it. He's like an overgrown toddler to me. His character will have to evolve a lot more for it to seem natural and not weird imo.

Sheldon was a Toddler when Amy came around, but you can't say that anymore I think.

And they have at least 3 years to get there.

Sheldon physically is still an innocent, i dont even think hes assexual but asemetric sexual. He prob has no idea how to have coitus lol, even the fundamentals, kissing constantly, hugging e.t.c. He has yet to fall into a regular patten of kissing, hugging etc. But like you said they have three seasons to get their i suspose. I guess purists or some observants gripe is, once the writers make Sheldon go their with any female, it well irrecovabley change the show. So i guess if your Shamy centric or follow FF, it well happen inevitabley, as they have been together four seasons. They have kissed, Sheldon suggested coitus etc. But in reality the writers may never go their, in the fear of alienating their audience and changing the show, their formula clearly works so dont want to mess with it. But come on can anyone actually imagine Sheldon kneeling on the bed or whatever Shamy do when theyre alone lol, feels very contrived to me. So maybe fans may have to rely on FanFiction, outside the Shamy fandom i dont think it really matters if Shamy had coitus either way, ppl are so obsessed with sex these days, i dont think its a neccedssity.

LOL yeah right. Sheldon said that him having coitus with Amy is possibility and was sort of a child prodigy meaning that he was good at school, especially science subjects, including Biology. So he obviously knows, theoretically, how to have coitus. If he doesn't, how would he know that it is something "dirty" and something that he is uncomfortable with due to his mysophobia? It is ridiculous to say that he doesn't know, theoretically, how to have coitus. And it does matter if they have sex because it is a part of the relationship growth and character development. If it doesn't matter, writer's would keep bringing it up in last two seasons. If they were only using it as a comic effect, why did they have Sheldon say that it is possible that he will eventually have sex with Amy and have him kiss Amy on the train and later add kissing in Relationship Agreement?

Also only because you can't imagine Sheldon having sex doesn't mean that nobody can and it doesn't mean that he will never reach that point if he didn't by now. Were you able to imagine Howard getting married and Raj talking to women without being drunk at first??

Look just because you see their relationship differently, does not mean my point of view was not valid. And knowing biology and the fundamentals does not mean he is adept at human and relationship construct. I mean if he is such a prodigy why hasent he had coitus at all in his entire life then? Oh i forgot he was waiting for Amy, yeah he really appreciates her ;). Your the one taking what i said out of context. I never actually said the writers use their relationship for comic releif, your words not mine. I said most casual viewers are not interested in Shamy having coitus, and are just interested in the comedy. And using Howard and Raj as examples are not very applicable. Those were circumstancial, when it comes to Sheldon its a characterization issue. Sheldon has never shown any interest in women, up till now. Howard did so getting married was as beleivable, he was also intetested in mating women Sheldon is not. Raj's mutism was his issue, using it as a point of reference as to "oh the writers wouldent of suggested it the past couple years". What suggestion? Just because Sheldon hasent ruled it out, does not mean he has the faintish clue of what it means lol. For the record i never said it would never happen, i said it was unlikely. Im aware others can imagine Shamy coitus good on them. Im just basing it on past behaviour predates future behaviour. In four years he has showm no interest in being in a physical relationship with Amy, tbh hes all talk. My point is general fans, purists, observants etc. Would prefer Sheldon never go their, thats all. I kno you like deconstructing my point of view but difference of opinion is allowed, just leave it at that. This is all speculation tho for all we kno it well never happen.

Sheldon's aversion to coitus can easily be product of his fear of germs, that he is slowly getting rid of. Altough having coitus is still a big step for him, he is comfortable with holding hands and kissing with Amy. It is also possible that he is demisexual, which is a condition where person can't feel sexual attraction towards another individual unless he forms a deep emotional connection with him or her, which would explain why he grows more fond of Amy and physical intimacy as their relationship progresses. I never said that their relationship itself is used as a comic effect, but his and Amy's differences regarding the physical intimacy. I believe that writer's wouldn't make him say that him having coitus with Amy is possibility and make him kiss Amy and like it if they don't plan to have then have sex eventually. Penny's commitment issues in her relationship with Leonard were used as a comic effect at times with some serious moments and actual development thrown in here and there and it progressed to them getting engaged, something that Leonard wanted for years-the same way with Amy and coitus. Raj's selective mutism and problems caused by it were often used as a joke with also some serious moments and development thrown in here and there until he got rid of it. Saying that Amy and Sheldon will probably have sex eventually is not having different view on a relationship but comparing the relationship development with other relationship and character developments already made on the show and events that preceeded them. The way Sheldon and Amy's relationship progresses is unique in it's own way but obviously a part of repeating pattern and based on that it is safe to assume that their relationship will progress and that they will have sex eventually.

Your point "why didn't he have sex before who would believe that he was just waiting for Amy he doesn't respect here" is sensless. It is the same as saying "Why would Penny propose to Leonard, she dated many other guys before and never got engaged." The same way Penny never formed committed relationship, relationship that worths getting engaged with anyone but Leonard before, Amy is first person that Sheldon formed an actual relationship with, the first person that he enjoyed kissing, the first person who, although on different sides with him when it comes to physical intimacy, loves him for who he is and is similar to him so much that he enjoys talking to her and dating her, and therefore the only person I can see him having sex with at this point. For Sheldon, having sex with her may be as big deal for him as getting engaged was to Leonard and Penny. Sheldon respects Amy comparing to his relationship with the rest of the social group, by all accounts she is the person that he respects the most.

Sheldon eventually having sex with Amy isn't an "issue of characterization" but part of character development. The same with Penny eventually forming an actual committed relationship with Leonard and proposing to him in later seasons, and with Howard finally forming an actual relationship with woman that isn't based solely on sex. And I agree that for all we know it will never happen but since there are three more seasons to follow for all we know Leonard and Penny may never get married and Bernadette may turn out to be a serial killer LOL. That claims may even have some foundations given Penny's commitment issues and Bernadette's short temper, the same with Sheldon's fears causing his aversion to coitus and his past actions. But nobody says that because comparing to character development made on the show and comparing to previous developments it seems very unlikely and sounds ridiculous. And relationships are big part of the show and not just humor and I believe that most if people watched the show because of the relationships too, writers wouldn't put so much focus on relationships if that wasn't so.

Not till they get married, but I do think they should have a couple scenes in the show where they share a bed, maybe in a hotel.

I believe that they will have sex before they get married but not before they get engaged. I agree that they should have more scenes where they share the bed.

He's still very much an overgrown toddler to me. He's definitely changed since meeting Amy, but not enough for me to not be creeped out at the idea of him having sex. It also creeps me out how eager Amy can be with him.

I don't think of Sheldon as "innocent" or a "toddler", I mean please, and I see nothing wrong with Amy wanting to become intimate with him. I think it is a matter of impression: we, ordinary people, see Sheldon as immature or too innocent at times but Amy is so much like him except in terms of physical intimacy that she is one of the rare people who sees him as an adult person who is simply different with terms of comunicating and views of life. I don't understand why so many people think that Sheldon is "innocent". Only because he has no interest in having sex so far and gets overly excited over geek things doesn't make him innocent, and the fact that Amy wants to have sex with him doesn't make her creepy. Sometimes the ways she expresses it are creepy but not the desire itself.

I don't see Sheldon as innocent or a toddler in terms of the concept of sex. I think he is fully aware of what its all about. He has constantly referenced 'coitus', has spent many episodes complaining about Leonard and Penny's bedroom adventures, has had the serious discussion about it with Amy and Lenny and for God's sake he watches Game of Thrones - you can't avoid it in that show. He's even made the odd innuendo laden reference to it - the chicken pecking corn reference regarding the British guy hypnotising Penny in 43 comes to mind - and has described his parts as fully functioning. His 'talk' with his mother after seeing her "doing the dance with the man with no pants" is another example of him being completely aware of it.

 

He's just not a fan of it for many reasons. His aversion to physical contact and bodily fluids/germs is obvious. His fear of intimacy is another. And not to be discounted is his upbringing. Mary Cooper's boy has been raised a strict Christian with a definite belief that sex is a no go zone before marriage. This belief was shaken by his mother's betrayal of that when she had sex. That may or not be a turning point. But he still has to get past his other issues. That will take time. A long time possibly. Eventually it will happen but I'm in no hurry for it to occur.

Amy isn't creepy for wanting to sleep with her boyfriend, but the way she goes about it is creepy. I'm still cringing at the spanking scene.

Knowing about sex isn't the same as being ready to experience it. I've been completely aware of what sex is and how it works since I was a kid, but that doesn't mean I was ready for it at that age. I just think they need to develop Sheldon's character a bit more before anything happens.

I really think they tamed Amy's comments about getting physical a lot in Season 7.  In fact, I only remember 2 scene that she actually verbalized anything. 

 

One when they were talking about the book "lies I tell to get sex" and she said "can I borrow that when you are done"

 

The second was in Raiders about loosing her virginity (but that wasn't really her mentioning it)

 

Yea, she makes faces and such but I didn't see her too pushy in Season 7 about it.

 

Now, as its stated, they aren't ready YET....it will get there eventually.  I agree, a lot more emotional stuff to break through first, but they'll get there. 

 

I also don't think he is naive about it.  In fact he really understands more than her how much that will change things.  I think for him, as of middle of Season 6, its more about what a big step it is rather than the germ thing.

The spanking was suggested by SHELDON himself! And I'm sorry but I honestly think he knows more than he lets on. I think he knew exactly what the spanking was! Did he ever suggest he spank anybody else, including Penny? No. He gives them strikes for not following his rules.

Well, Jim himself said that SHeldon didn't see it as a sexualized experience, but saw it as a matter of an infraction requiring punishment.  Remember, his first choice was locking her in the stocks in the public square.

And I think that the nature of his relationship to Amy, and the nature of her offense, have to do with the difference between his choice of punishment for her and what he may choose to do with other people.

Plus, I think the writers just wanted to play around with that juxtaposition of her way of seeing it and his way.

He's being simple and straightforward and doing what he believes must be done for a sick person--vaporub, singing, bathing, etc.  It's no less than he would want done for him (well, they haven't mentioned the bath part except when he mentioned sponge-baths to Penny.)

So he's just ticking off the list.

That she sees it as sexy, or a chance to have Sheldon "handle" her, is where the humor comes from.

 

I don't think, judging by how Jim apparently interpreted it, that there was any intention to imply that Sheldon was using it as an excuse to touch her or see her naked or that he got some kind of sexual thrill out of any of it.

Hahaha yeah unfortunately with Sheldon when you're thinking "He can't really be THAT naive, can he?".... yes, yes he can be.

 

I would love to believe he was doing it on purpose (so much, really, trust me) but Phanta has a point.

Well it's a matter of choice on both their parts isn't it? If they both want to, and the writers want to write him that way, then that's what'll happen.

This idea of corrupted innocence is only obscene if you view Sheldon as child-like. Whilst he has many immature qualities he is undeniably an adult, one of extreme intellect in fact (as he's written). Now, if it was the opposite and he was written as socially stunted but with a below average intellect would there be as many people objecting to him having a sex life? Should being a developmentally backward adult mean you can never express yourself sexually if you find someone you love and want to have sex with? Is consensual sex somehow obscene if you're socially stunted?

Personally, I believe the writers will go there, there's too much comedy potential to leave it alone.

It was suggested by Sheldon as a form of punishment. There was nothing to suggest that he enjoyed spanking Amy in a sexual way during the scene. If Sheldon truly wished to spank Amy in a sexual way, he need only ask.

I'm sure that their relationship will progress in the upcoming seasons. The writers have time to make Sheldon interested in sex in a natural way. I just don't think it will/should happen next season.
