As we grow older we began to mature in many ways. Hormones take over and turn our world’s asunder until we go complete our metamorphosis into adult humans. During this time we find our passions, our motivations in life, change physically, and become fully immersed in a sex crazed world.
Sex is everywhere we look in our daily lives. Whether you are checking out the opposite sex when you make your daily travels or hopping onto a social media site you find sexual things. Sex is becoming a more comfortable subject with the public, and we all know sex sells. A fact evident by sexualized media promotions, songs, movies, and books. Novels by Zane, Maya Banks, and more recently E.L. James are all famous because our need to indulge our sexual thoughts.
This got me to thinking. Sex does a lot for us as a species, it perpetuates us, pleasures us, traps us, frees us, bolsters our economy, sends us to jail, helps us make deals, breaks them, begins and ends marriages. Sex is Damn near omnipotent in our lives in this day and age. So, I thought deeper, it’s not just us, some species of primates like the Bonobo use sex as a bartering tool. Dolphins much like many humans have sex just for the fun of it and not just to procreate.
If different species across the world are having sex for multiple purposes and we are using it in a multitude of ways that just means one thing to me. Sex is Sentience, or rather a necessary thing for sentient beings. It may be had for stupid reasons, but sentient creatures do it. Now I’m in no way saying having sex makes you smart because you can feel dumb as hell afterwards, but maybe Sex itself is smart. I say that because we may all not be having sex, but sex sure is having all of us…. maybe it is a sentient thing all on its own?
That’s just my own two cents on the subject.
