This is concerning whether "love=sex", which is bull. Biology and reproduction are irrelevant!
Here are a couple of scenarios you requested: During the 19th century, certain religious groups prohibited sex of all kinds, even if they were married. Modern case: Someone with AIDS being romantically involved with a healthy individual.
Thats OK you guys are youngins. Well IDK how old Assassin is...
Did you know almost all human physical contact causes your brain to release euphoric chemicals? The same applies to the one performing the act. Even stupid shit like petting your dog or cat, and even your dog or cat's brain reacts in a similar way. A sort of weird symbiosis. Both like performing and receiving. Ever wonder why it feels so damn good to have your back scratched?...
The act of sex and orgasm and all the combined touching, kissing, eye contact EVERYTHING is all a chemical response. With sex its multiplied enormously. Your desire to have sex comes from one simple biological necessity- To ****ing Reproduce! So saying its irrelevant is like saying the sun is irrelevant to life. Without sex life could not exist. Without sex our species would fail. Without sex YOU WOULD NOT EXIST! No offense...
I say this again, almost everything you do in life after pubescence is because of sex. Your "love" is all chemicals. Its not real "thing". The reason you love is to have sex. And once sex is performed, because of these reactions in your brain your "love" becomes addiction to these chemicals... Herp.
"During the 19th century, certain religious groups prohibited sex of all kinds, even if they were married."
Yep, all whilst the pastor was ****ing 10 year old boys behind the pulpit...
"Modern case: Someone with AIDS being romantically involved with a healthy individual."
See above. They still probably perform all the same shit minus actual intercourse. You can call this a IDK humans are ****ing weird anomaly. Even if reproduction is restricted we still use sex and relationships purely for gratification. Just like porn...
lol topic derailment
some folks get married at 87 just to have someone to play cards with

We are capable of love for the purpose of reproduction; that doesn't mean that's all that's there. I'm not saying love can't be explained by science, but I'm sure as shit saying our sentience plays a role just as much, if not more, than sex.
Haha This thread never really went anywhere anyway... /dead
Well, Im done with this discussion... Guess I was just grumpy. BTW Just in case, if anyone at any point in your life ever asks you to put an online finance application on their website... Tell em to FOaD! There's like 1-bagillion fields and literally 7 pages involved + about 10 hours work...For one GD form!!! And it all has to be SSL! Man I really low-balled this shit too...
Sorry Assassin :P
It's fine. I hadn't had a decent discussion since the month began. I was starting to get rusty.
