Sex is one of the most misunderstood human experiences. The very word triggers a whole gamut of conflicting emotions and ideas, eliciting thoughts that are pleasurable or otherwise. But rarely does it ever draw our minds to the fundamental reason for its existence in our lives. If we go back to the very beginning of human life, sex had but one purpose, and that was to ensure the perpetuation of the human race. Clearly, we have strayed from this very simple concept.
