I would like to please you and/ or have an orgasm.

 

From The Associated Press By Seth Borenstein After exhaustively compiling a list of the 237 reasons why people have sex, researchers found that young men and women get intimate for mostly the same motivations. It's more about lust in the body than a love connection in the heart. College-aged men and women agree on their top reasons for having sex — they were attracted to the person, they wanted to experience physical pleasure and "it feels good," according to a peer-reviewed study in the August edition of Archives of Sexual Behavior. Twenty of the top 25 reasons given for having sex were the same for men and women. Expressing love and showing affection were in the top 10 for both men and women, but they did take a back seat to the clear No. 1: "I was attracted to the person." Researchers at the University of Texas spent five years and their own money to study the overlooked why behind sex while others were spending their time on the how.

We don’t mean to demean the collectors of this valuable, valuable data, but aren’t some of these the same? Did they have someone compiling? Is ‘I was sexually aroused and wanted the release’ and 'I was "horny"' not really the same thing? And how about ‘It feels good’ and ‘I wanted to experience physical pleasure,’ same? At any rate, we’re pleased that the researchers spent their own money on this. We find the bottom five reasons to be the best part of this. Some men, evidently, have sex to punish themselves. Are they doing unattractive women? And some because they want to break up (by cheating?). Women have much, much better worst reasons: giving an STD, club initiation and money, raise, job. We sometimes have sex for procreative purposes. And sometimes because our partners think we make funny ‘O’ faces, and we pride ourselves on being entertaining.
