Why Do We Consider Sex As Sacred?

Have you ever wondered why even in our secular age we still treat sex as something sacred? Consider the way that those who sexually assault others are considered to be the worst moral monsters. Why do we see sex as about far more than the raw evolutionary need to reproduce our DNA? Why do we long for intimacy? And could it be possible that sex is a pointer to a much greater story?
