It is the woman who conceives, bears, and suckles the child. Those activities that are most deeply sexual are mostly female; they comprise the mother’s role, a role that is defined biologically. The nominally equivalent role of father is in fact a product of marriage and other cultural contrivances. There is no biological need for the father to be anywhere around when the baby is born and nurtured. In many societies the father has no special responsibility to support the specific children he sires.

Sex can be cheapened, as we know, but then, inevitably, it becomes extremely costly to the society as a whole. In the most elemental sense, the sex drive is the survival instinct: the primal tie to the future.

They seize on the bomb as a reason for a life of child-free futility.
His love defines his choice. His need to choose evokes his love. His sexual drive lends energy to his love and his love gives shape, meaning, and continuity to his sexuality. When he selects a specific woman, he in essence defines himself both to himself and society. Every sex act thereafter celebrates that definition and social engagement. Without a durable relationship with a woman, a man’s sexual life is a series of brief and temporary exchanges, impelled by a desire to affirm his most rudimentary masculinity.
