Human Sexuality. bug or feature?

Postby hyksos on May 13th, 2018, 12:12 am 

Back to the Religion Section of the Forum again. We play the fun game of painting ourselves into the corner with creationists and seeing what kinds of neat-o conclusions pop out.


The first rule of the game is to totally agree with the creationist's terms. We presume that human beings are the expressed designed creation of a deity and its supernatural interventions on earth -- whom I will name "Creator" with a capital C. Whatever attributes are near-universally present in human beings therefore must have been explicitly designed into humans from their inception as a species. Whatever humans do, Creator designed.

The question is not whether human sexuality is a flawed designed choice on the part of the Creator, but now it is rather : How flawed is it?

When designing human sexuality to his order, the Creator was clearly either absent, asleep at the wheel, or "on drugs".


Anal sex was investigated in this thread viewtopic.php?f=46&t=34405 Therein I tried to marginalize it as some sort of rare perversion that flies in the face of normal human behavior, only to fail in that endeavor against a wall of neutral facts.

Correctly Designed Sexuality would follow some, all or even more than the attributes found in this list :
  • When women are raped, their body would disallow a pregnancy due to some (unknown) mechanism where, if it is a "legitimate rape" the body would have a way to quote, "shut that whole thing down".
  • Men can only muster an erection around someone they love and trust, and in a situation of comfort and safety.
  • Women would find monogamy desirable, and sex would continue in most satisfactory ways with one-on-one experiences with a single man.
  • Men would be caring, want to have children, and become attached to whichever woman they happen to impregnate.
  • The anus would be universally reviled as an erogenous zone, avoiding a litany of HIV infections, urinary tract infections, and other general nastiness. This revulsion appears even to be "evolutionary advantageous". But apparently the Creator works in mysterious ways.
  • The male testicles would be inside the body tucked away in a safe place.


If the Creator had half an ounce of decency, he could have designed homo sapiens with the above attributes, ensuring thousands of years of safety, monogamous, nuclear families and their happy marriages. But the Creator is either crazy, incompetent, or malicious in this topic. (Accepting the creationists' terms), this is instead what the Creator decided he would actually do when designing human sexuality :

  • Despite some crotchety old Senator's declarations about "shutting that whole thing down" --- Women can become pregnant from a violent rape.
  • Childbirth is equal parts dangerous and painful. Women died from childbirth frequently, all the way up to the 19th century, AD.
  • Men can only muster an erection around someone they love and trust, and in a situation of comfort and safety. That would be nice. Now we will visit a brothel in Kolkata. We need not travel, you can watch documentaries about them on youtube. HEre is a woman in Ukraine who is addicted to heroin. She supports the habit by getting fast cash from her Johns.

  • Women would find monogamy desirable, and sex would continue in most satisfactory ways with one-on-one experiences with a single man. Instead what is desirable is closer to : one man in this hand, one man in the other hand, and a third man in my mouth.

  • Men would be caring, want to have children, and become attached to whichever woman they happen to impregnate. Real men in the real world act like alpha male deer with a mating season that goes 365 days. They desire to keep every female in their "territory" pregnant at all times. In the words of some Russian wives "men will naturally cheat.. it's how they are designed." While we are at it, through history harems existing in every major civilization -- even Charlemagne had a harem : he was a Christian King in France. Look it up.
  • The anus would be universally reviled as an erogenous zone, (for reasons previously listed). Instead some 9 out of 10 camgirls ram things in there that should never fit. The result is a chain of orgasms of unspecified number.
  • The male testicles would be inside the body tucked away in a safe place. Nope. The alpha males have to impregnate every female in their immediate territory.. so males have to produce around 300 million sperm cells per day. So much sperm would die from body heat. The human male (apparently) designed this way as well, so we all walk around with a scrotum that hangs inconveniently on the outside.

I have not even mentioned the now documented phenomenon of menses synchrony in women. The basic gist is thus: You have a bunch of women working together in a work place, their periods will begin to synch up.

The first theory to explain this is that there is a Matriarch "Trend-setter" who all the young girls are synchronizing to, based on pheromone signalling.

This theory was abandoned in light of the evidence. Experiments showed again and again, when it comes to menstruation synchronizing, there is no such thing as an "alpha female" in humans.

Having scrapped that theory , the door is open to more "exotic" explanations having to do with competition among ancient humans. The competition would look like a race to become pregnant from the the "Alpha Male" of the tribe. If this theory is the correct theory, this has enormous consequences both in biology , and even more dire consequences to creationism.

We would have liked to have dispensed with men being "international players" as some sort of recent perversion brought on by popular culture, movies, rock music, and other media. But if women have this aspect innately, genetically, then that argument becomes impossible to shore up.

One consequence of this theory is that human men do actually cheat as the natural course of events, and have been cheating with multiple sex partners for millions and millions of years. Whether this be due to design by a creator, or from evolutionary pressures, the theory suggests women have a innate biological aspect to respond to a male who "sleeps around" amongst them.
