Blackfire. Well I did leave sexual attraction out of the equation. If it is the simply the spark that sets of the reproduction cycle then it doesn't need much explanation. An interesting question to ponder: If reproduction did not involve the need for sex or the nurture of offspring would love exist at all? And if in that scenario men and women still had sex drives would heterosexual sex be the prevailing choice as it is now for most people?
