Everybody I know is talking about sex. If they are not talking about how much they are getting then they are talking about how much they are not getting. There was an article published on WebMD.com that named 237 reasons why people have sex. So taking a cue from that article I wanted to learn why do people have sex.

The study conducted in the WebMD.com article was conducted by Cindy Meston, PhD, and David Buss, PhD, of the psychology department at the University of Texas at Austin.

They asked 203 men and 241 women aged 17-52 in Austin, Texas, to anonymously list every reason they had ever had sex. Those men and women were taking psychology classes or were participating in other studies at the Sexual Psychophysiology Laboratory of the University of Texas.

What they came up with from their study was 237 reasons why people have sex. Here are the top 10 reasons they found out that people have sex broken down by gender:

Here are women's top 10 reasons for having sex:

1. I was attracted to the person.
2. I wanted to experience the physical pleasure.
3. It feels good.
4. I wanted to show my affection to the person.
5. I wanted to express my love for the person.
6. I was sexually aroused and wanted the release.
7. I was "horny."
8. It's fun.
9. I realized I was in love.
10. I was "in the heat of the moment."

Top 10 Reasons Why Men Have Sex
In the study, men's top 10 reasons for having sex are quite similar to the women's list. Here are men's top 10 reasons for having sex, according to the study:

1. I was attracted to the person.
2. It feels good.
3. I wanted to experience the physical pleasure.
4. It's fun.
5. I wanted to show my affection to the person.
6. I was sexually aroused and wanted the release.
7. I was "horny."
8. I wanted to express my love for the person.
9. I wanted to achieve an orgasm.
10. I wanted to please my partner. (Source)


So do you agree or disagree with this list? What are the primary reasons why you engage in sexual activities, and do you believe women can engage in casual sex as easily as men or are they fooling themselves? And is sex really as casual to men as they make it appear to be? What Say Thee...
