sorry for derailing, I just hate that mentality.
Let me begin by noting your clearly invalid move from the supposed naturalness of sex-having to its moral acceptability. Murder, rape, gambling, and rap music may very well be natural to the human condition, but obviously no rational person would conclude that they are therefore morally appropriate.
Beyond your logical failing, though, is your factual error in supposing that everyone who condemns sex-having deems himself to be "high and mighty." I am no saint. There are times when I am more Dionysius than Apollo--days when my appetite gets the better of my intellect. You presumably don't deem yourself "high and mighty" when you deign to condemn murders and thieves, do you?
You included rap music alongside murder... I'm starting to wonder if you have ever tried any of the things you find "morally reprehensible." Perhaps you could kill two birds with one stone by listening to rap music while you rail a chick. (You might find they are different than you think)
