The Female Biological Need for Sex


General Biological Needs

The human body has certain necessities for survival. These necessities are defined as biological needs. Homeostasis is achieved when the biological needs are met in adequate amounts. Human biological needs include:

  • Food: Food is responsible for the delivery of minerals, vitamins, and essential amino acids through the process of digestion.
  • Water: Water is essential for life and has many responsibilities throughout the biological systems that comprise the human body.
  • Air: Air is essential for life as well, with its own responsibilities throughout the biological systems of the body.
  • Temperature Regulation: This is also essential for human life. A regulation of temperature at the average 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit is essential for existence. This regulation can be accomplished through the building of protective shelters, clothing, and specific locations.
  • Sex: The survival of the human race is not possible without the process of procreation.

Sex: A Biological Need

Sex is a biological need. Procreation, the generation of offspring, is a biological necessity for survival. However, recent studies have shown that this biological need also comes with several other beneficial factors.

  • Satisfaction: Studies show that women are more likely to be satisfied with life and exhibit more happiness with the presence of a healthy and active sex life.
  • Exercise: Sexual intercourse requires some work. While it is not typically associated with exercise, sex increases your heart rate, breathing rate, and contracts muscles, all associated with exercise.
  • Endometriosis: Studies have shown decreased development of this condition associated with a healthy and active sex life.
  • Relief of Stress: There exist strong correlations between stress relief and sex.

Sex: Beyond the Biological Need

Sex is no longer completely used as a biological need for the necessity of procreation. Sex has developed into an integral process within relationships. Sex is not only utilized for purposes of procreation, but creates an intimate connection between partners fulfilling physical and emotional necessities for overall good general health.

Sex and Your Emotional Health

Commonly in women, a healthy and active sex life is associated with an emotionally healthy life. It is all too common for women not to enjoy sex because they fail to see how beautiful they are. Beauty is completely in the eye of the beholder, but it can present itself to be a sexual road block if the woman is not happy with herself because she is not the supermodel on television. Ok, so everyone isn't a supermodel, and if everyone was, as humans we would develop other ways to define superior looks.Generation and maintenance of overall emotional health, being happy with yourself, who you are, what you do, where you live, how you handle your life and situations, is important for a healthy sex life. Everyone is beautiful, even you! The sooner you start to believe in this and yourself, the better your health will become.

  • Bullshit.For a woman sex is not a biological need.They stay happier without it.

  • Amen to the previous writer

  • Well..... TECHNICALLY, if we're discussing humans as animals rather than as individuals, sex IS a biological need - we need to have sex in order to ensure the success of our species, just as we need to eat and breathe to ensure our species success. And on a personal level, do I NEED sex to survive? Obviously not, but I'm happier with it.
