We don’t have an urge to reproduce, or as you put it, “procreate.” We have an urge to have sex just as all animals have.
If we are talking humans here, do you really believe that?
“be fruitful and multiply”
How many woman feel incomplete until giving birth?
How many agonize over their inability to give birth?
I myself admit to having this profound feeling of joining the human race for real when my daughter was born. (and I’m a guy)
Sex is great, but there’s more to it than just getting our rocks off.
Heck this “need” to build families around ourselves is one reason we allowed this runaway population explosion to get so out of hand.
Oh and religions helped a lot too. ;-)
The need to reproduce is built into us. It’s an unconscious determining factor. Sometimes we can control such needs and sometimes not. If it was so easy—or even possible in some cases—to curb such a natural instinct we wouldn’t have an overpopulation problem.
