Heinlein on The Purpose of Sex

September 20, 2012

Excerpted from Stranger in a Strange Land, by Robert Heinlein:

“Babies are the obvious result…but not the primary purpose at all. Babies give meaning to the future, and that is a great goodness. But only three or four or a dozen times in a woman’s life is a baby quickened in her…out of the thousands of times she can share herself-and that is the primary use for what we can do so often but would need to do so seldom if it were only for reproduction. It is sharing and growing closer, forever and always.”
