Why Does Sex Feel So Good?
What do you think is the biological reason that sex, the act of sex, any kind of sex, feels just incredible?
I’ve heard that we were wired to enjoy sex so our species wouldn’t die out. The better it feels, the more we fuck, the more offspring we bear.
Well, that’s all well and good.
In the 18th century.
But now our planet is overpopulated, and resources are threatening to become scarce, and even replacing ourselves on this planet in a 1:1 ratio seems frivolous. So WHY is it that sex still feels good? Shouldn’t our bodies be losing the desire, shouldn’t our tingly bits be less tingly, if sex is meant to bring more babies in the world?
I like to think…
…the original plan of ‘sex-for-babies’ is being replaced by ‘sex-for-fun’. Because, let’s face it, so much in the world sucks right now, humans dying needlessly, rights being stripped, the rich becoming richer and more king-like, that maybe, fer jeebus’ sake, MAYBE sex is escapism. “Just fuck me so I can forget (insert angst here).”
I’m all gooshy and horny and can’t do a damn thing about it at work, and sometimes wish I could put my box in a box until a more convenient time.
