  • Distracted, fixated, addicted to, but not obsessed

    Obsession is a compulsive and repetitive thought which drives someone to act in order to sustain the obsession but it never subsides. Some humans may have issues where sex is an obsession but the global mentality is not a sexually obsessive mindset.
    We are very distracted by it, and people fixate on building their lifestyle choices around being sexy and dressing sexy, but this is a learned behaviour from surrounding influences. I wouldn't say they are obsessed, more so confused and uneducated.
    Some people are addicted. This is not necessarily an obsession, but a strong urge to fulfill some form of sexual desire. Addiction may inflict obsessive thoughts at times, but once the urge has been satisfied, this generally subsides for a while.
    I do believe the lack of self respect, and respect of others regarding sex is a problem though. People do act carelessly, with todays smartphones people video and photo themselves doing all kinds of vulgar sexual actions and post it around like it is no problem, in fact it is almost like people do this for some kind of acceptance within a community of people.
    These are not obsessed people, these are troubled people looking for some belonging and validation.
    So these are some of the reasons my vote is no to a global obsession with sex in the literal sense.

  • Yes, people are obssessed with sex.

    Most of us have a sex drive but we also have self-control. There is now an imbalance between these two facets of our nature. Self-control has gone out of fashion, as we've been encouraged to believe that we can have what we want when we want it --- in all aspects of our lives. Efforts to help us overcome or avoid the guilt that was instilled in previous generations regarding sex has gone too far. We're encouraged to believe that not having an full on sex life means we're abnormal. Everybody thinks they're entitled to sex or to be able to see it played out in porn.

  • Humans are absolutely obsessed with sex

    As our society starts becoming more detached to the abrahamic religions such as Christianity, Judaism and Islam we see people feeling are acting as if sex is an entitlement that they should explore at any given time. Sex has been given such a respect in a way that we even allow abortions. We can sit here and argue that I going off topic but no. What's "the women's choice" in regard to abortion? It's either rape which doesn't even make 5% of abortion cases or it's simply a choice. A choice that could have been evaded if there was sexual protection or maybe if we weren't so desperate to have sex. If people stopped having sex as much as they do now stds and abortions would be diminished. Our society is simply very animalistic.

  • Humans do have a need an obsession with sex.

    All animals that relie on sex only to reproduce seek it out as soon as they reach an age where they are fertile. Humans are no different, our ancestor have been following this urge in the human mind that drives a teenage boy to think about every 9 seconds and dominate his mind. Sex is something that people think about every day whether about sex of a close member or sex of a stranger it even often enters dreams. Humans are obsessed with sex bacause it's been hardwired into us and every creature that depends on sex for the species survival

  • We are a sexualized society.

    There's no doubt that humans are obsessed with sex. Our entire culture is so sexualized, that even little children, long before they know what sex is or what it's for or how they do it, have an idea of it as a "dirty thing." We are simply preoccupied with doing it.

  • (Various sources of unknown address)

    Mainstream media in all of its' forms perpetually contains sex and sex related content. This is not a negative component to human society in and of itself. It is simply antagonizing to individuals who are not easily stimulated by the human body. For some the human body is in fact an offensive bundle of offensive odors and filth sewn up within a suit of skin. Mammals are offensive to the nose in general but humans have sweat glands. Those who choose not to partake in such activity due to certain qualms may in fact view the human species as being overly addicted to sex collectively. Humans have no mating season and the females do not "go into heat" so to speak. Humans mate all year round unfortunately and as such many humans are constantly thinking about sex. Compared to other species human beings engage in sexual activity far more than is needed. This is evident when we observe the global population and its' ever spiking numbers. Exponentially spiking numbers in fact. This species-wide inclination to sexual behavior is no doubt largely responsible.

  • Obsessed with success,

    I feel that we are all driven to be successful either in a career or the bedroom, to say we are obsessed with sex is to say we are obsessed with breathing, it's just something we do, it needs no training to complete, we are born with that ability. There are those that will take a concept too far, and instead of being asked why we will just judge them, categorize them and dismiss them as unfit

  • No, I Don't Think So

    I think that humans are genetically inclined to have a biological need regarding sex, to increase the population like with any other animal, but they do not have an obsession. The idea of an obsession states that there is little in their mind other than the sexual need, and I believe that the human race in general has many other obsessions, while sex is just an enjoyable behavior.

  • Very interested, not obsessed

    Reproduction is essential to life. Granted, in the case of humans that is frequently not the reason sex happens, but it is the origin of why so many of us have a high drive for sexual intercourse. There's nothing unhealthy about being receptive to somebody that you find physically attractive, if the chemistry behind that didn't happen we would have never made it this far.

  • More of a drive than an obsession.

    I don't believe humans are obsessed with sex, simply because there are too many daily activities that humans are engaging in otherwise. If we were all obsessed with sex, nothing would be done. We would all be having sex all the time. The idea is not only gross but also leans toward economic and organizational instability. And while we aren't obsessed with sex, we are highly interested in it as the media incorporates sexuality in music, art and commercial media.

  • No, humans are not obsessed with sex.

    At least no more so than any other animal. It is important to remember that humans are animals and all animals have a drive to reproduce, so why would humans be any different. Some animals spend a significant amount trying to attract mates, humans are no different. So although we may be preoccupied by sex, that preoccupation is not obsession it is simply the manifestation of our natural instincts.
