STUDY FINDS THE 'WHY?' BEFORE THE 'WOW!'

It is a long-established fact that birds do it. Studies have confirmed that bees do it. Now the University of Texas has determined why it is that we do it. Researchers there spent five years - and their own money - trying to find out what makes men and women want to have sex. And they found that men and women pretty much want to have sex for the same reasons.

Researchers first questioned 444 men and women - ranging in age from 17 to 52 - to come up with a list of 237 reasons people have sex. Then they asked 1,549 college students to pick their top five from among those 237. After tallying the votes, they released the top 10 and bottom five reasons for each gender.

So, without further ado:
