Why Do Humans Have Sex? For 237 Reasons... - There's a much more complex motivation than previously thought
By: Stefan Anitei, Science Editor - Softpedia



Many scientists assume people have sex for simple and straightforward reasons such as to experience sexual pleasure or to reproduce, but a new research at The University of Texas at Austin reveals hundreds of varied and complex motivations that range from the spiritual to the vengeful.

After conducting one of the most comprehensive studies on why people have sex, psychology researchers David Buss and Cindy Meston uncovered 237 motivations, which appear in the August issue of Archives of Sexual
Behavior.

People’s motivations ranged from the mundane ("I was bored") to the spiritual ("I wanted to feel closer to God") and from the altruistic ("I wanted the person to feel good about himself/herself") to the manipulative ("I wanted to get a promotion"). Some said they had sex to feel powerful, others to debase themselves. Some wanted to impress their friends, others to harm their enemies ("I wanted to break up a rival’s relationship").

Buss and Meston conducted two studies. In the first, they asked more than 400 men and women to identify reasons people have sex. In the second, the researchers asked more than 1,500 undergraduate students about their experiences and attitudes.

The Texas psychologists identified four major factors and 13 sub-factors for why people have sex:

• Physical reasons such as to reduce stress ("It seemed like good exercise"), feel pleasure ("It’s exciting"), improve or expand experiences ("I was curious about sex"), and the physical desirability of their partner ("The person was a good dancer").
• Goal-based reasons, including utilitarian or practical considerations ("I wanted to have a baby"), social status ("I wanted to be popular") and revenge ("I wanted to give someone else a sexually transmitted disease").
• Emotional reasons such as love and commitment ("I wanted to feel connected") and expression ("I wanted to say ‘thank you’").
• Insecurity-based reasons, including self-esteem ("I wanted the attention"), a feeling of duty or pressure ("My partner kept insisting") and to guard a mate ("I wanted to keep my partner from straying").

"Why people have sex is extremely important, but rarely studied," Buss said. "Surprisingly, many scientists assume the answer is obvious, but people have different reasons for having sex, some of which are rather complex."

The bottomline:

God designed sex for humankind to attain temporal immortality.
This smacks of a grand conspiracy to hide the non-existent, to identify the nameless, to paint a picture of the unseen. -- Benelynne

Jerjer is an equivalent to the term "toyi," and, to quote myself from somewhere else in this forum, owes its coinage to Teban of "Teban and Goliat" fame.  It was intended as a euphemism for sex but, by its own merit, eventually became a dirty word in itself.  I first heard of it in late 2003 and, since I'm usually one of the last to know, it may have already been in circulation even a year before that.
