Incidentally, I don't buy the idea that only a few animals find sex pleasurable, that makes no sense.
I think what that person meant is that only some animals have sex purely or partly for pleasure rather than solely for reproductive purposes. The physiological processes of arousal and orgasm are largely the same across species, at least in mammals. Of course because sexuality is also controlled by emotion and conscious thought, we humans (and possibly those most intelligent animal species) can have a much more intense experience than just the release of a few hormones.

Because if we didn't enjoy it, we wouldn't do it, and then WHERE WOULD THE BABIES COME FROM?

For god's sake guys, other species only mate at certain times in the year because of their menstrual cycles which only allows them to ovulate at a specific season. Therefore, I'm guessing since less evolved species are more concerned with simply having babies than having sex for the fun/pleasure of it, then it only makes sense that someone would assume that other species don't enjoy, which is wrong of course, but still.
Hormones make sure you enjoy it, otherwise every species would have gone extinct in no time (bacteria must have sex like 5,000,000 times a day... lucky)

Urm, bacteria does not have sex. It's asexual... (unless you're joking?)

Apparently, only humans and dolphins enjoy sex.
The males emit ultrasound waves to pleasure her.
I'm still waiting for a guy that can do _that_

Errr no.

To the OP, there is no more discussion required; the Darwinian explanation is simply that it feels good so that animals will reproduce.

Incidentally, I don't buy the idea that only a few animals find sex pleasurable, that makes no sense.

i think what she means is that humans and dolphins are the only animals that have sex for fun... and not just because of instinct or because the time is right (ovulation) or whatever reason... of course they enjoy sex... (well at least the males do, lol)

because its quite an effort getting pregnant and giving birth, as well as feeding the babies. So Mr. Nature tricks us to having sex and pay for the price later.

In humans it has a role of creating a strong long term bond between partners as well as for procreation. This is important because the father plays a significant role in bringing up the child.
