Sex chat with peope around the world
Sincerely /me "Mormons" and attempting to differentiate the sects within this topic is merely semantics.
Procreation is the root reason for sex in the LDS and FLDS.
In 1990, the editor of the But scientists, like many in society, are prudish.
This is why nearly every psychological model of well-being ignores even a mention of human sexuality, and why nearly every recent book on happiness and well-being ignores sexuality. Just as there is no universal reason for eating hot dogs (whether trying to win a contest or scarfing them in front of the television out of habit), there is no single reason across time, culture, and history that people engage in sex.
Spend a month journaling about the motives behind your sexual proclivities, and carefully observe and talk to your partners about their own.
You might learn something obvious about yourself that you never noticed, and you might initiate some important conversations with your romantic partners about how you converge and diverge.
As far as "sex is a necessary evil for procreation" myth, the LDS church debunked it.
I was taught sex was only for procreation in the 90's - early 2000's from the official LDS lesson manuals in the official young women's program for preteen/teen girls. There are ways if you really want to, but you don't.
Thus, it is worthwhile to spend some time on what scientists have learned about sexuality.
We spend an inordinate amount of time and money in the pursuit of sex. When you consider AIDS, childbirth, or "honor" killings, our survival and death are often intertwined with sex.
Examples include ‘‘The person was 'available,'’’ ‘‘The opportunity presented itself,’’ and ‘‘I wanted to increase the number of partners I had experienced.’’ Women exceeded men in endorsing certain of the emotional motivations for sex, such as ‘‘I wanted to express my love for the person’’ and ‘‘I realized that I was in love.’’ These findings support the evolution-based theory that women, more than men, prefer sex within the context of an ongoing committed relationship, and feelings or expressions of love provide signals of that commitment (Buss, 2003; Townsend, 1998).
Also supporting this theory were findings that suggest sex without emotional involvement was a more powerful motivator for men than for women.
