I need to preface this somewhat and say that I am a man, which makes it an even more ridiculous question, and I am married, which makes it a more tragic question.

But why would anyone choose to have sex? For me, having sex 1. confirms my manhood, at least for a little while, 2. tamps down the urges, at least for a little while, and 3. keeps the peace at home, at least for a little while. I don't really get anything else out of it.

From my experience and perspective, sex is just way too…

Why bother having sex?
