Sex is actually EXTREMELY important from a scientific perspective. You would not be here to have typed out this answer if it were not for sex, and neither would your parents or any of your ancestors have existed were it not for sex. By scientifically, if it is not already clear, I mean human beings are a sexually reproducing species. With respect to that, our entire lives are affected by sex. The stages of our lives are defined as pre-sexually active (childhood, youth), sexually active (adulthood), and then proceeding to less and less sexually active, then death. If there were a scientific reason for our existence, it would be to replicate our DNA, much like any other species that wishes to continue to exist in the future. The whole cultural aspect of being obsessed with agism is actually about being obsessed with sexual attractiveness. That said, I do understand your perspective, and as rational, self-aware organisms we can logically decide not to let sex take such a predominate place in our lives. But I do think it is remiss to be so dismissive about the impact and importance sexuality has on the majority of our species.
@zeitgeist057 While I agree with you that sexuality is important, I need to differentiate a little.In the greatest part of the animal kingdom, sexuality is solely used for procreation, that means that animals become active when the female is ready and ovulation is about to take place. If this principle of nature would apply to humans as well, I could agree with you 100%. However, humans have made sexuality mostly a pornographic habit by copulating and fornicating outside this time frame. and by performing perverted sexual acts that have strictly nothing to do with procreation.And that is where I am differentiating. I agree on the principle, not on the means.
