1) Why do people have sex?

There are many reasons why people have sex, but a few themes have developed over the years.

Physical gratification

First and foremost, people often have sex simply because it feels good.

This can be for pleasure or simply tension relief – or physical desirability when you find your partner attractive.

Emotional reasons

Many romantic people express their love and commitment to one another through physical intimacy.

Sex can be a way to establish a secure, deep bond.


Some people may have sex as a way of boosting your self-esteem and confidence.


Sadly it can also because of duty or feeling pressure from obligation.

To achieve goals

Others may have sex because of what it helps them to gain, be it status or power.


And some people have sex as a means of revenge.


For less self-centred reasons, people can have intercourse with the end goal of having a baby.


Some people see sex as a way to gain an advantage in a relationship.

Mate guarding

Scientists found that people have sex to “ward off poachers” or competition.

2) What are the differences between why men and woman have sex?

Researchers quizzed more than 4,500 people and found three reasons for sex among the top four for both men and women.

They were because it’s fun, because it feels good and for a desire to experience physical pleasure.

But other motivations varied significantly, the scientists from Ghent University Hospital in Belgium found.

The long list of reasons included boosting self-esteem, boredom, revenge, duty and to burn calories.

Study leader Dr Elia Wyverkens said: “Men tend to endorse reasons centring on visual sexual cues.

“In contrast, women are looking for expressions of love and commitment.”

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 42

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
