29 – Why do we love Sex so much?

Is it because it has been made into ‘sin’?

Is it because it gives us so much pleasure?

Is it because giving pleasure to our own body and to that of others is exciting, and beautiful, and never enough?

Is it because it awakens in us primal and collective instincts?

Is it because it let us feel the universal in us?

Sex is mysterious because it can take us into ecstatic and eerie trances, yet it is also such a physical feast to the senses. Violent, tender, carnal, sex brings out the primal animal that seizes us into immeasurable heights of pleasure, degradation, pain, wonder, ecstasy.

Sex is one of the strongest forces of Nature: It is the intimate intercourse from which we come into existence; it is what incites us to bond; it is what makes us universal; it is what drives our evolution; it is what transmits what we have learned into future generations, it is what perpetuates Life.

Ancient and universal, the sexual force pre-programs in us everything that seeks pleasure. Through sex, we are made into instruments of the process of creation.

One thing that has made human beings evolve differently from most animals is that our sexual drive is not seasonal but constant. And because it grows in force as we develop from early adolescence into young adulthood … when we are constantly on the prowl to satisfy the hormonal fire within us … sex has driven us into producing more offspring than our environment can properly sustain. It is thus that the inhibition of sex education and the use of contraceptives, especially among the disadvantaged and oppressed, are major causes for the exponential population increase threatening to overwhelm the environment that sustains our evolution.

There is no way to refute the fact that although we are highly evolved animals, we continue to be driven by the universal sexual instinct that compels us to act. How else can we explain the forces inside our bodies urging us to be released with the promise of pleasure, so the species can grow and evolve? How else can we explain the fact that in the sexual act our bodies release living creatures that innately know how to generate other human beings? How else can we explain the fact that we consume living energy sources to build an organism that shares a collective structural shape? How else can we explain the fact that our sexual feelings, although utterly personal, are complements of ‘something’ greater than us; ‘something’ that can be demanding, and destructive, and brutal, and wild, and insatiable, and creative, and self-generating, and exciting; ‘something’ that imprints our bodies from the moment we are created with the desire to seek pleasure, so a species can be perpetuated?

These are some of the reasons why we love sex so much.
