Of course you were. On a macroscopic level, your parents fucked in order to propagate the species (or just for the hell of it), resulting in you. It's your turn now.
On a microscopic level, to quote Lazarus Long, "A zygote is a gamete's way of making more gametes." Sperm and eggs can't reproduce themselves on their own, so they get together and make a factory for producing more of themselves. That chain can't be perpetuated without fucking.
So stop noding and get out there and practice your birthright already!
