The Shamy coitus was welcome, but I spent more time laughing than melting at the Shamy scenes. For one, Sheldon is still clueless. I cannot believe he had to ask Bernie and Penny if Amy would actually want coitus with him. Then after so many years of mocking sex, he looked stunned that the girls were questioning his consideration and readiness for it. Normally, Penny would be like "Finally. Yes. Go for it." However, she was actually feeling him out to see if he was sure. When he acknowledged that it was settled and he would give Amy his genitals for her birthday, he didn't seemed enthused, but more relieved that he found the answer he was seeking and his mind was finally made up about it. As already stated, it seemed to me that Sheldon was doing it mostly for Amy because he wanted to make her happy and show her how much she means to him, not because he wanted sex, per say. He made up his mind and went along with his decision, but if it didn't happen, I don't think it would have bothered him at all. I'm not trying to be a downer here. I loved everything they did, but I didn't get the romantic or desire vibes from Sheldon as I had hoped. It appeared to me like he felt this was something he had to do to make it right for Amy and to take their relationship to the next level. To me, he is still the same Sheldon as always, but he is thinking about his decisions and making a purposeful attempt not to take Amy for granted and to show her how much she means to him. As much as Sheldon loves Amy and tries to show his feelings, when left to his own devices, it seems he will always be somewhat methodical rather than idealistic about it. The fact they cut the cuddling at the end kind of sealed it for me that although Sheldon enjoyed their physical activity, and it was good for both of them, he is still somewhat reserved in expressing himself on an intimate level. Our romantic hearts want to call it lovemaking, but I think what has been said in the interviews is correct. To Sheldon, it is in fact just coitus. If Amy had never entered his life, he'd have no desire whatsoever to ever engage and would have been content to evolve into a superior being to live forever or die as a virgin. I want to reiterate that I loved what they did, but I got myself hyped up for more than what we got from Sheldon's side. Perhaps others' view points can help me to see something that I'm not. On another note, I would have thought Amy would have been more excited about the flowers, after making such a big deal about it last Season, but perhaps the other gift over-shadowed it. Jena, I almost always agree with your take on things, but not this time for the reasons I outlined in my post above. No one pushed Sheldon to this (besides his own subconscious), no one was pressuring him. Things with Amy were better than ever. He did it because he (and Little Sheldon) wanted to, and yes, because he loves Amy and knew it would make her happy. Of course, he wasn't sure how well it would go or even if he would enjoy it when push came to shove (pun sort of intended). What 37 year old virgin with his hang ups would be? I'm sorry you were disappointed, but the last scene proved to me he was more than happy with his choice, and it was good for him too. I liked his words to PP, "This is an important night for us.". Not just Amy but for both. He wanted it, too. BTW...my comment from a couple days ago about being sick of discussing Sheldon's "asexuality" apparently rubbed someone the wrong way based on someone's post. All I can say is it was never personal and if you read my comments completely you would know that, others agree with me, and don't ever threaten me on this forum again. It's childish, makes others afraid to speak their mind on here, and totally uncalled for. With that, one shall remain nameless, I will ignore you as others do. I would rather use my energy to debate one of my fave ships. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
