Why Do you Have Sex?

at the University of Texas spent five years trying to figure out why we have sex! Professor Cindy Meston concluded that her findings refuted a lot of gender stereotypes-- that men only want sex for the physical pleasure and women have sex because they want love.

After asking 2,000 people why they have sex, all their reasons were assembled and categorized into a total of 237 reasons, including the desire to burn calories, to help them fall asleep, because they were drunk, to feel closer to God, even to get revenge. Thankfully the top reasons were mere attraction to one another, the desire to express their love for each other, and the desire to communicate on a deeper level.

So ladies, since there are already some crazy reasons out there, tell me, is there a reason that you have had sex that isn't already on this list?!
