237 Reasons - Why Humans Have Sex

ParkPlease don’t think that this is some porn article…. hehe…  Its Not. And all people who came here expecting to see some, I’m very sorry to disappoint you. Infact its exactly opposite to that. Its Research. Survey. :D

I found a link about some reasons for sexual behavior while looking at the mysterious (and disgusting) Oedipus Complex… and when I investigated a little further, I ended up with a PDF document which analyzed 1,549 persons to find out that there are 237 different reasons why people have sex. I have to say, I was pretty surprised. I thought people had sex for three reasons only:

  1. Reproduction
  2. Pleasure
  3. Social Relationship

So I downloaded the pdf and when I looked at the contents, I thought I HAD TO share this. Very very hilarious reasons. Have a look at them. You will Roll on the floor Laughing. You have to admit that having Sex “to change the topic of conversation” or because “It was an initiation rite to a club or organization”is funny. I know that this was supposed to be a very serious investigation into human sexual behaviour and everything, but I can’t help myself but burst out when I look at SOME of them.

As it is my duty, I warn all the children reading this, there may be some adult content present here, and you are not allowed to view this. Exit immediately… :D

The Complete 237 Reasons are given at the end.
