I've had a strong sex drive since puberty that continues.

Not sure about that conclusion.

We humans do a lot of self-destructive things that go against our biological well being.

I wasn't aware that we were considering theories from thousands or millions of years ago.

The neurochemistry I am referring to is in the present, where we all live and breathe.

Our neurochemisty in the present, where we all live and breathe, is identical to that of the anatomically modern humans who settled down and started practicing agriculture in the range of 8,000 to 5,000 BC. The time elapsed since then

All that oxytocin speculation was debunked long ago as wishful thinking on the part of creepy

I'm not sure how religion or abstinence plays into all this but I don't think there's a soul out there who would say that, overall and on an emotional level, casual sex is not harmful - much more often than neutral or beneficial.

Also, I don't think STD's are a recent invention of mankind. Perhaps I'm wrong though.

Wow, the conservatives have had themselves a field day on that Wiki page...just another example of how unreliable that site can be. There are valid reasons for any person, teenage or adult, to make careful choices about sexual activity. Wouldn't it be much more honest, though,
