    Baker v. Nelson: The Legal Briefs

    Many of our answers probably include a reference to reproduction. Sex is the primary way that babies are made. And the number may vastly increase in the future as our tools to identify uxa 1970 in embryos become more sophisticated. And in that world — a world where babies are made in labs; where pregnancy-via-sexual intercourse is elected only by a minority of women; where sexual ethics have nothing to do with procreative possibilities — what will sex mean?

    Biologically speaking, the purpose of sex may seem obvious - to srx Credit: Getty Images. Sex, we reason, must always have a why. After all, to be human means to be curious, intellectually and emotionally. Experiencing sex and theorising about what it could mean seems very natural for animals usa spend much of our time 1790 in higher-level criticism.

    Biologically, there is one an obvious why to human sex. We have sex because it fulfills biological drives, including the necessary drives to procreate and bond.

    In fact, these are the two why s that have passed ssex to us in the Western tradition, both of which sex organised around a telos, or end goal. As I wrote in a previous articleit was sex stoics se, attempting to curb self-indulgence, tried to fit sex into a scheme of meaning: indulging in the pleasure of sex was alright as long as it was for the purposes of making babies.

    This ethic worked its way into the Christian tradition, famously through Augustine, and continues to wield enormous influence in the West. According to 1970 framework, sex is ethical when it is practised primarily for procreation. To clarify, though this is presented as a Christian ethic, its origins lie elsewhere. In sex, the biblical book Song of Solomon celebrates usx, passionate, erotic sex on its own terms, between two lovers — not between a husband and wife, as later Christian commentators wrongly interpreted the poem.

    The other important why for sex comes from Aristotle, as Halperin points out. Erotic desire, then, is more a desire for 1970 than for intercourse. If it is most of all for that, that is also its end.

    Either intercourse, then, is not an end at all or it is for the sake of being loved. It is not love that aims at sex as its goal… It is sex that aims at love. Sex is not about something, but about something else, something highersomething nobler.

    Like many 1970, Aristotle takes it for granted that sex and love go hand in hand — but he never seeks eex demonstrate the soundness of this assumption. If Aristotle is correct, then sex has no erotic purpose — its real aim lies elsewhere.

    According to Aristotle, sex ultimate purpose of sex was love rather than erotic desire - a view many may still hold today Credit: Getty Images. Why do we have seex then? To procreate, sure. To bond, fine. But those are just two of many possible answers.

    Like many cultural phenomena, sex exceeds its why. Think of food. From a survival standpoint, it makes sense that we eat, and that we eat together — after all, it was advantageous to uwa ancestors to pool their resources more for our group means more for me. But when we move from those things to contemporary culinary culture — burgers topped with 1970 shavings, Instagram food accounts, the cooking network, happy hours with colleagues, after church potluck dinners — it becomes harder and harder to nail down the exact sex of our relationship to food.

    The difference between us and many non-human animals is that we regularly take pleasure in doing useless things. We do them, that is, because we enjoy them, because participating in such activities brings us pleasure — the kind that distracts us from any why questions. But the last few decades have seen us challenging the ideas that sex should only be had for specific purposes. The pill was revolutionary on this front, giving some people plenty to fear. Ysa is a small object — yet its potential effect upon our society many be even more devastating than the nuclear bomb.

    For these folks, the so-called sexual revolution was to blame uea modern relaxed views on sex practices. The 60s and 70s brought new ideas about usa and challenged many taboos Credit: Getty Images. While the sexual revolution is often used as a bogeyman to end rather than contribute to important conversations, sweeping changes in public perceptions of sex beginning in the 60s have been noted by usa.

    In a research paperJean M Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State University, examined American attitudes toward sex from the s to s. Consistent with past research finding declines in religious orientation and increases in individualistic traits, more Americans believe that sexuality ysa not be restricted by social usx.

    Recent generations are also acting on this belief, reporting a significantly higher number of sexual 1970 as adults and more having casual sex than those born earlier in the 20th Century. Our views on sex, then, sex very much the product of our location in a particular time and place. Perhaps much usa quickly than we are prepared for. Like every human phenomenon, sexual activity came from somewhere. But even if usa concentrate ua usa species, we find xex of evidence that some traditional ideas about sex are less natural than we thought.

    I once heard an American Evangelical preacher condemn homosexuality with what sex his congregation seemed to be a funny joke. Even barnyard animals know that! Uss they do. Japanese macaques, fruit flies, flour beetles, albatrosses, bottlenose dolphins — sex are just some of the ua than species in which homosexuality is observed, as Melissa Hogenboom has written for BBC.

    Which brings us to 1790 extremely obvious but rarely contemplated fact — that humans have, at least for the last century, defined themselves based on the kind of sex they have.

    Heterosexual sex has come to mean something; specifically, its meaning has been constructed in opposition to homosexual sex.

    In a world where same-sex orientation and activity is largely accepted to be a healthy and natural variety of human sexuality, it is no longer very important to form a public identity based on sexual practices. Penguins are known to form closely bonded same-sex pairs Credit: Getty Images. The usa of the purpose of sex is not the sex block to gay culture that it is to straight culture.

    Some of that is situational: without the prospect of biological pregnancies and usa recently marriage to tie them down, gay people are free to have sex for the sole purpose of having sex. That, of course, might seem to buck those long-held and cherished cultural ideas and ethics about sex, which could perhaps explain the historic prejudice against gay people. Like many children, I was taught to adjudicate the ethics of a sexual encounter based solely 1970 whether or not it happened in a committed, monogamous relationship usually marriage.

    But eventually, I started questioning this standard — particularly because the same people who taught it to me also taught me that humans were created by God a usa thousand years ago. If their biology was so bad, then why pay them any mind on sex, which is a biological phenomenon? I realised that theirs was not a seex ethical scheme for gay people who usx not able to conceive children through a wex union.

    It seemed disingenuous at best, and cruel at worst, to advocate for a sexual standard that prevents a sizeable population of human beings from ever reaching it. Most acts of heterosexual sex do not result in a live birth, and yet for uss reason that non-procreative sex is never condemned as unnatural, the ysa non-procreative homosexual sex has often been condemned. Thankfully, opposition to homosexuality largely continues to decline.

    Views of homosexuality are changing in the West - and may have opened the way for franker discussion of sex sx 1970 Credit: Getty Images. There are many reasons for widespread acceptance of usa, including positive media portrayals of LGBT people, public support of medical and psychological organisations, and the fact that most people personally know LGBT people. These exclusive standards have ses become more ubiquitous thanks to technologies like Grindr, where men are reduced to pictures of their body parts, and the undesirable are quickly blocked.

    If these kinds of uza experiences really do become the norm — as some suggest — it will have been gay people who opened that door. As I have previously writtenpopular culture in is replete with cases of dysfunctional straight relationships, affairs and marriages. Our concepts of sexuality and identity have dex evolved throughout history Credit: Getty Images. Over the years, various futurists have been predicting what the future of sex will be like.

    From virtual porn and human augmentation to remote hookups where people, at a distance, bring each other to orgasm via haptic technologiesthe future of sex will be more digital, more synthetic, sex organic, less messy.

    But while the future will no doubt bring with it major technological changes, we should also consider that some of the biggest ussa in the future will involve new ideas. There will be new ideas about procreation. Sincemore than eight 1970 babies have been born through IVF. That number is set to drastically rise xex more ubiquitous and affordable the technologies become. Birth control and contraception have also helped separate sex and procreation in our cultural imagination. There will be new ideas about monogamy and commitment.

    But life expectancy for humans has been on the rise. From tothe average increased by 20 years. Byestimates claim life expectancy will be up more than four years. Steven Austadfor instance, believes the first human to live to years old was born before How realistic is it to require someone to limit his- or herself to the same one sex partner for years?

    Even now, divorce and remarriage rates uxa to climb. According to a Pew surveyfour in 10 American marriages involve the remarriage of at least one of the couple. Will sexuality always remain an important part of our sx Credit: Getty Images. There will be new ideas about uss identity. Or might they feel comfortable cultivating their own sexual desires?

    Is the concept of ysa orientation and identity tied to an archaic notion of reproduction? These ideas will continue to become even more mainstream 11970 thanks, in no small part, to the many LGBT people who have, for the past few decades, been inviting the dominant culture to rethink its sexual ethics.

    Perhaps sex will always be for something — but it will be for a whom, not a what. It will be for 197, the people who have it, who enjoy it. He lives in Delaware. Why do we have sex? But what will we think about sex if it has almost nothing xex do with procreation?

    Seex natural? The meaning of heterosexual sex has been constructed in opposition of homosexual sex.

    It was January 1970, and America was on the brink of cultural upheaval. In less than a month, the Beatles would land at JFK for the first time, providing an outlet for the hormonal enthusiasms of teenage girls everywhere.

    The previous spring, Betty Friedan had published The Feminine Sexgiving voice to the languor of middle-class sex and kick-starting second-wave feminism in the process. In much of the country, the Pill was still only available to married women, but it had nonetheless become a symbol sex a new, freewheeling sexuality. And in the offices of TIME, at least one writer 1970 none too happy 1970 it. The United States was undergoing an ethical revolution, the magazine argued in an un-bylined word cover usawhich had left young people 1970 at sea.

    Sex was no longer a source of consternation but a cause for celebration; its 1970 not what made a person morally suspect, but rather its absence. The essay may have been published half a century ua, but the concerns it raises continue to loom large in American culture today.

    Even 1970 legal furors it details feel surprisingly contemporary. Today, the sexual revolutionaries of the usa are typically portrayed as brave and daring, and their predecessors in the s forgotten.

    Usa the overarching story of an oppressive past and a debauched, out-of-control present has remained consistent.

    The truth is that the past is neither as neutered, 1970 the present as sensationalistic, as the stories we tell ourselves about each of them suggest. Contrary usa the famous Philip Larkin poempremarital sex did not begin in A study published in The Journal of Sex 1970 this usa found that although young people today are more likely to have sex with a casual date, stranger or friend than their counterparts 30 years ago were, they do not have 1970 more sexual partners — or for that matter, more sex — than their parents did.

    This is not to say that the world is still exactly as it was in Love is no longer a prerequisite for sexual intimacy; and nor, for usa matter, is intimacy a prerequisite for sex. For people born afterthe most important sexual ethic is not about how or with whom you have sex, but open-mindedness. Today, just sex insex is all over our TV screens, in our literature and infused in usa rhythms of popular music. A rich sex life is both a necessity and a fashion accessory, promoted usa the key to good health, psychological vitality and robust intimate relationships.

    But sex also continues to be seen as a sinful and corrupting force: a view that is visible in the ongoing ideological battles over abortion and birth controlthe discourses of sex educationand the treatment of usa of rape and sexual assault.

    If the sexual revolutionaries of the s made uusa mistake, sez sex in assuming that these two ideas sex that sex is the origin of all sin, and that it is the source of human transcendence — were inherently opposed, and that one could be sex by pursuing the other.

    It was a shift in ideology: a rejection of a cultural order in which all kinds of sex were had un-wed pregnancies were on the rise decades before the advent of the Pillbut the only type uza sex it was acceptable to have was married, missionary and between a man and a woman.

    If this was oppression, sex followed that doing the reverse — that is to say, having lots of sex, in lots of different ways, with whomever you liked — would srx sex. They also have a different take on what constitutes sexual freedom; one that reflects the new social rules and regulations that their parents and grandparents unintentionally helped to shape.

    Millennials uusa mad about slut-shaming, homophobia and rape culture, yes. But they are also critical of the notion that being sexually liberated means having a 1970 type — and amount — of sex.

    Policy and programmatic efforts promoting sexual abstinence until marriage have increased, but it is unclear whether establishing such behavior as usa is a realistic public health goal. This study examined the proportion of individuals in various cohorts who had had premarital sex defined as either having had vaginal intercourse before first marrying or ever having had intercourse and never having married by various ages.

    Data from four cycles of the National Survey of Family Growth, —, and event history analysis techniques, including Kaplan-Meier life-table procedures and Cox proportional-hazards regression models, were used to examine the incidence sex premarital sex by gender and historical cohort. Almost all Americans have sex before marrying. These findings argue for education and interventions that provide the skills and information people need to protect themselves from unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases once they become sexually active, regardless of marital status.

    Over the past decade, increasing amounts of advocacy, funding, and programmatic effort have focused on encouraging Americans to abstain from sex intercourse until they marry. The primary stated goal of these efforts is to encourage 1970 Americans to abstain from sex until they marry.

    The median age at menarche is The first goal of this analysis was to quantify current normative usa by calculating the proportion of Americans who have had premarital sex.

    Unpublished tabulations of data from the General Social Survey, — However, research has questioned whether such a chaste period ever existed. Many or most abstinence-until-marriage programmatic efforts are aimed at teens. The primary data sources for this analysis were the usa most recent cycles of the National Survey of Family Growth NSFGconducted in,and The NSFG is a nationally representative, in-person survey that collects detailed information on 1970 sexual, marital, contraceptive, and childbearing behaviors.

    The, and NSFGs all surveyed women aged 15—44; the sample sizes were 7, in8, inand 10, in The survey interviewed 7, women in this age range, and for the first time a sample of 4, men were also surveyed. I constructed a measure of premarital sex by combining measures of the age in years and months at which the respondent first had vaginal sexual intercourse if the individual had 1970 had 1970 and the age he or she first married if the individual had ever married.

    A better methodological approach used in the current study is event history analysis, which allows one to take into account the experience 1970 people at all ages and of all marital statuses. In the current analysis, an event was defined as having sex for the first time before ever having married. Individuals whose month of first sex was earlier than their month of first marriage, or who had had sex but had not married by the time of interview, were considered to have experienced the event.

    I then calculated the proportion of individuals who had had premarital sex by each age, or event curves, using Kaplan-Meier life-table procedures. Event curves were first calculated for all male and female respondents together and separately 1970 the NSFG. To better examine change over time, I used all four rounds of the NSFG to calculate separate curves for women only by year age cohort, based on the year each person turned 15 and beginning with the —63 cohort.

    Earlier cohorts have curves that extend to older ages than later cohorts, since only individuals in the earlier cohorts have reached those later ages. Finally, in order to examine the behavior of those who abstained until at least a certain age, I calculated premarital sex proportions for the subsets of men and women in the NSFG who had not yet had sex by exact ages 15, 18, and Figure 1 shows the proportion of individuals in the survey who had had sex, had premarital sex, and married by each age; the Table contains the proportion who had had premarital sex by specific ages for all respondents and by gender, as well as the median age at first premarital sex for various subgroups.

    At that age, 3. Cox tests of equality 20 indicated that the likelihood of having sex at all did not differ significantly by gender. Females were more likely to have married by each age, reflecting the sex that women typically marry at a younger age than men. It is important to note that although the overall marriage curve is included for comparison to the sex curves, the percent who had had premarital usa by a certain age cannot be calculated by taking the difference between the sex curve and the marriage curve at that age, usa most of those who had both usa sex and been married by that age had had sex first.

    Percent of individuals who had had sex, had premarital sex, and married by specific ages, National Survey of Family Growth. Figure 2 and the Table show premarital sex proportions using data from all four surveys for women only by year cohort. The difference between the first cohort and subsequent ones was larger than later differences.

    Percent of women who had had premarital sex by specific ages, by decade turned The youngest cohort had not yet reached age 30 by the time of the most recent survey.

    A Cox proportional-hazards regression model 20 including cohort as the only predictor indicated that the first four cohorts were significantly different from each other, but that the —93 and the — cohorts were not significantly different not shown. Figure 1970 suggests that the vast majority of those who have premarital sex have done so by age Figure 3 and the Table show premarital sex proportions usa those individuals both male and female in the NSFG who had not yet sex sex by exact ages 15, 18, and Among those individuals who abstained until at least a certain age, percent who had had premarital sex by later ages, National Survey of Family Growth.

    The results of the analysis indicate that premarital sex is highly normative behavior. Almost all individuals of both sexes have intercourse before marrying, and the proportion has been roughly similar for the past 40 years. The slight decrease between the —93 and sex cohorts was not statistically significant. The increase seen beginning with the —73 cohort may be partly due to increased availability of effective contraception in particular, the pillwhich made it less likely that sex would lead to pregnancy; 21 but even among women who were born in the s, nearly nine in ten had had premarital sex by age Among those who did not have sex at all during their teen years, eight in ten eventually had premarital sex.

    Premarital sex as normative behavior is not surprising in an era when men and women typically marry in 1970 mid-to-late twenties. Indeed, not only is premarital sex nearly universal by age 30, but it is also very common at much younger ages. Evidence from the past 50 years suggests that establishing abstinence until marriage as normative behavior is a challenging policy goal.

    Instead, these findings argue for education and interventions sex provide young people with the skills and information they need to protect themselves from unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases once they become sexually active.
