Sex, an animalistic hunger

Everyday I witness that we are accepting our sexual make up as the force which drives us. There have been endless books on the topics. Perhaps some of these books struck a nerve for a few brave readers but so far nothing powerful enough has been presented to the current culture to stop the distressing momentum. I can well imagine the character of Spock in Star Trek raising a brow and saying “interesting”.

It is an interesting phenomenon that the human brain can become so self-absorbed by sex that nothing else is vital. Who figured out—which dark controller of destiny-- figured out that we could be controlled by an animalistic hunger. Who figured out that given time and a certain combination of events that we would believe today's sexual behavior a perfectly normal, natural, and acceptable outcome of being human? Most difficult to fathom is that we mistakenly label this hunger passion.

Let us say this like it is--the sexual prompt is a small part of our human self which enables us to co-create ourselves—which is another human. For those who demand scientific reasoning to support this premise you can find it in several scholarly works but my favorites are by Marnia Robinson and by Regina Jenson
