    Anyone else feels this way? It's funny how we are supposingly an intelligent species yet we lose our minds and act on sexual instincts more often than not. Our subconcious need to reproduce and pass on our genes to our offsprings with the best possible mate out there is laughable. The act of sexual intercourse itself is very primitive. Let's not go into details, I'm sure you understand. So what are your thoughts on this?

    I'd say I agree, you can go from doing physics equations to moving your hand back and forward in an instant. I personally dislike how we have these feelings as it defo makes us less productive, however its needed for the species to live so. ya. sex is good but its bad.

    how can you say it is laughable, not only the obvious reason that you're here because of sex, but also our species has only become this intelligent through sex. The need to pass on genes is the basis of life, such a fundamental concept of reproduction is not something that is trivial. An intelligent species would, in theory have as many sexual partners as possible in order to produce the maximum number of offspring possible. that would make for an incredibly successful organism. You saying sex is primitive is like saying life is random... duh. if sex/reproduction wasn't primitive, there would be no life.

    But moving your hand back and forward is masturbation not sex😂 But yes same concept, still the same hormonal release and urge to reproduce applies.

    Yes never said sex is not necessary. No one would be here without it😂 But it is very primitive. I'm kind of wondering why the process of reproduction hasn't evolved in some way

    At the end of the day, we are all animals that just happen to be smarter than other animals, but that does not mean we leave behind our carnal instincts, heck, 5000 years ago all we were probably doing would be eating, ****ing, sleeping and repeat

    Yea, I guess so. Tbh its kinda devolved in a way, womans hips are smaller and stuff meaning they get injured more when they give birth. I guess we got stronger babies in a way?

    Nope, I don't.
    I don't think that's the reason. I mean, if it was, then I must be defective somehow, lol (same goes for all gay people). I think it's purely about pleasure. It feels good, that's why we are drawn to it.

    Women's hips are generally larger than men's hips:lolwut: But yes men are generally stronger than women. Because the male had to provide food and shelter for his family back in the day, and still in our current era too most of the time.

    Define how it's primitive, relative to what?

    But still, being a slave to pleasure shows we are actually not very intelligent. We can't resist basic animalistic instincts for prolonged periods of time.

    Actually, would not mind at all. I have a decent body and average face so maybe, just maybe, it could potentially be useful to me soon

    I'm not so sure, really. The most primitive versions of humans mated out of instinct to pass on their genes. Modern humans are much more inclined to seek pure pleasure, and sex is just one of those pleasures. Same way that we get cravings for certain types of food that our body doesn't really need or substances that our body definitely doesn't need, and we feel like we have to fulfil those cravings otherwise we'll go insane.

    Relative to the modern civilisation and world we live in. Penetrating an orifice because "it feels good"

    It's not like we are complete slaves to it. Some people can resist it. Like some priests or monks. I will never understand them. Why do that when it feels so good.
