    I have always felt sex was primitive. Animal like. Humans are so developed at this stage that sex seems outdated. Instead of choosing an intellectually suitable mate, humans are likely to choose one who is more attractive.

    Instead of planned pregnancies we have "happy" ?s. Rarely does a human engage in sex for reproduction. So, unlike the animal kingdom, humans have sex for pleasure... yet wouldn't you think that the most intelligent species of the planet would rise beyond these primitive means of pleasure?

    Sex is an incredibly important aspect of a healthy relationship. You shouldn't degrade it as some sort of 'base' act. Sex is a good thing.

    Have you ever had sex?

    (and I don't mean it in a sarcastic way, I'm just wondering)

    Sex is an important part of any relationship and forming a bond with another person. Yes, it gives us pleasure, but it also allows intimacy and closeness.

    Ramius, that was deep. Very deep.

    I'm glad you completely understood what I'm talking about.

    With a title like this, I had to see what it was all about.

    I'm not saying sechs isn't important or highly emotional, but I feel as though many times is mistaken for love, when it is anything but.

    When nature calls, it's clearly primitive and animal like. Of course, Ramius would tell me "dont go to the bathroom then"

    Is sex outdated? I'd say no.

    Remember that the primary purpose for sex is still procreation. We haven't yet found a better way to have children than good, old-fashioned sex.

    In a perfect world, we'd procreate on some special day, much like Christmas... only better.

    Sure sex is an animal act, but humans are animals. Big deal. Sex for pleasure will never become obsolete. Sex for reproduction may become obsolete in the far future, but not the act itself.

    It's too much fun.

    CarbonKnight, when you said I have always felt sex was primitive. Animal like. Humans are so developed at this stage that sex seems outdated it sounded like you don't like sex. I thought you were suggesting that we should all artificially inseminate or something.

    In a perfect world, there would be no guilt or negative associations attached to a vibrant monogomous sexual relationship. Since when did intimacy become primitive???

    Are you partially basing your opinion on any forms of Christian teaching? Because there are numerous instances in the Bible where the physical relationship between man and wife is praised, encouraged and lauded. It is a good thing.

    I don't think sex will ever be outdated. Even if we come up with some special way to procrate without it that is healthyer and safer, I think sex will remain even if it's only value is recreational.

    Have you ever read Brave New World? No? Well, in this futuristic society, they only had children through artificial means and sex was only for pleasure.

    This was a terrible idea and just made lots of promiscious irresponsible people that had no respect for the act of sex itself. Sex can be an incredible emotional experience for two people and I think the idea of it being outdated downplays its importance.

    Sex is the joining of two people and the most intimate thing you can do with another human being. As long as human emotions still exist, sex will.

    Sex is a great way to kill 2 or 3 minutes.

    You know what... I don't think we should eat, either! After all, that's an animal instinct, too! And we wouldn't want to be anything like animals, would we? So let's just not eat and starve!
