I thought of something today at work... where I think of a lot of stupid questions due to being so bored.

How did we figure out that sex lead to babies?

think about it.... "I had sex with a woman... BAM! 9 months later she had a baby." how did someone first make that connection???


/stupid question that' probably has a very easy answer I can't think of

Overanalyzing will only lead to headaches.

Pretty sure it had something to do with the sacredness of one's genitalia, and I'm pretty sure there was some sort of pattern eventually.

Explains sex, yes. But not the connection between sex and the baby nine months later.

How'd they figure out how babies were made?

1) Define the question - Where do babies come from?
2) Hypothesize - Maybe from having crazy sex?
3) Experiment - Two people have crazy sex. Two other people don't.
4) Analyze data - Couple 1 had a kid, wonder what that means..
5) Draw conclusions - sex makes babies
6) Publish results - PORN!!

yeah, i'm fairly certain they used the scientific method.

I guess it's just instinct.

There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

a lot of people misunderstand the question.... sex is a natural instinct, the reason you want to have sex is so that you will reproduce and make more people. same as with animals, animals don't think, "oh, i want a baby, I'll go have sex" they just know that they want to have sex.

the question is, how did someone realize that having sex causes someone to get pregnant?

brain245 has the right idea, but that has a flaw. where did the hypothesis come from? that's the whole question, how'd someone think of that?

Are we speaking in terms of humans, or just organisms in general?

Dude, give it a rest...just look up some Anthropology books at the library if you care that much. I'm pretty sure it wasn't one or two people who figured it out first, rather, most tribes knew sex lead to pregnancy, they all just had different reasons for it.

A lot of ancient tribes would attribute it to energy or spirit. There was good and bad energy in everything, and it was not an infinite supply. You could give some of your good energy to others, especially children. These tribes saw having sex as giving good energy to your wife or someone you loved, and the energy swelling inside her and creating a baby. The father would be drained of his energy, however, because he had just given it to the woman, so he would go out and hunt a deer and eat it, thus taking its energy. They saw life cycles just as we did, but they attributed it to different things.
