It seems to me that after a certain amount of time, sexual pleasure will be obsolete, due to greater advances in neural science. Not only is it not productive ( wow... what an incredible unintentional pun) in our current society, it can and will be superceded by greater methods of pleasure. Even today, for a lot of heroin users sex pales in comparison to the purely chemical high. Who knows what's coming next?

I'm reminded of the role-playing game Vampire: The Masquerade (I noticed some roll-playing buffs on this list) where the immortal (see a parallel, anyone?) vampires have replaced the lust for sex with the far more powerful lust for human blood, which is the sustenance of the species.

Might we be doing ourselves a favor to somehow link physical pleasure with that by which will sustain ourselves in the future?
