    Uber, If you thought the quote was interesting enough for a sig line...why bother grumbling about the lack of sex?
    Because I'm beginning to feel like a loser because I haven't gotten any. People who have sex do seem to be more successful in life than those who don't.

    What I'd really like to do is find some way to get rid of this unusual animal desire and feelings of loneliness so I can keep my intelligence and independence.

    That sounds like an option. Dead people have been known to get laid.

    But I want to find out why I even have this desire.

    And why can't anyone ever give me a straight answer as to why people do such things or why the practice is so enjoyable? In theory, it just sounds kinda gross.

    Reproductive value. That's the short answer anyways.

    Do you have a link or advice that can teach me how to do this?

    But people who don't want to reproduce still do it. Why? I cannot figure it out.

    Darwin wants you to get laid. Organisms that enjoy sex have more sex and make more babies. It's a beneficial trait.

    because orgasms are fun! (ok- you can have them without anyone else, but it's fun with a partner as well!!!)

    I simply spent most of my life immersed in a religiously conservative environment where most of the people did not possess inner homosexual inclinations but simply were brought up believing homosexuality to be wrong, for many reasons:


    "Common sense" coupled with holy writ told them that homosexuality was not the ideal and was wrong. So it's more of a training/intellectual thing.

    There are also those who just happened to be repulsed by it, just like some people are repulsed by various sexual practices that are not "pure vanilla."

    So right there are at least two alternate reasons besides yours why people might oppose homosexuality.
    An intelligent person who pays attention to the world around them gets over this crap pretty easily. I find the concept of male homosexual sex disgusting, but it's none of my business unless I'm in the same room, and thus it has nothing to do with "morality." People who actively object to it have some kind of agenda for making it an issue.

    - To produce offspring naturally, you need a male and female.
    - God made males and females just for this reason.
    - Males and females are different.
    These are theoretical considerations. Honestly, I don't even feel the need to argue with them, simply because they're all irrelevant. Nothing on that list implies a topic of legitimate public concern. Why even think about it unless it's already on your mind for some personal reason?

    But mainly I was joking.

    Darwin is dead.

    Why do I want it?

    And why can't anyone explain it to me? I know what it does, but no one gives me an answer of what it's like. Why? I need to test the waters before I dive in so I can make sure that it's worth the trouble in the first place. Can't someone give me an analogy of some kind?

    Moreover, my username notwithstanding, because I think this way, am I less than or more than human?

    By the way, I am actually not the one who turned this into a sex topic. Someone else disagreed with my views, and everything went to hell. This should be cut into the Philosophy & Spirituality thread...oh wait...
