Sex in Middle Earth

   You would have to assume that there was sex in Middle Earth.Where else did everyone come from? It seems Elves had few children , Why? I am not sure. Men it would seem were very sexually active as they were quickly becoming the dominant race in Middle Earth. As for Orcs, did anyone see a female Orc in LOTR? All I saw were the black Uruk-Hai of Sarumans gestating in some sort of muddy and slimy transparent uterus. What of Trolls aand Goblins? As for Dwarves Gimli states that there are dwarf women but that they look a lot like Dwarf men and so are seldom noticed as Women. poor Dwarf Males. While I am at it did you ever stop and think of how many bachelors there are in LOTR? Lets see, Hmm, well it appears they all were. Bilbo and Frodo, bachelors. Sam, Merry and Pippin, bachelors. Aragorn, Boromir, bachelors ( But I will give a shout out to Aragorn for having a thing going on with Arwen). Theoden, Denethor, either Bachelors or Widowers. Elrond and his Sons, bachelors. Saruman and Gandalf, Bachelors, but being Maiar maybe they were supposed to stay bachelors in order to focus on their mission. Gollum,bachelor and the head bad guy Sauron, bachelor. Maybe if these guys had wifes and kids they wouldn't have time for all this rings of power stuff. As for the women they all seem to be in some state of Old Maid kind of loop. Arwen and Eowyn but they do find their man at the end.Galadriel and Celeborn had been I'm guessing  man (Elf) and wife for thousands of years but I can't find any record of them ever having Children together, you would think after a few centuries they could come up with one pregnacy. No. i am afraid sex is one aspect of Middle Earth that Tolkien having been born into the Victorian age was not going to dwell on this subject. So let your imagination run wild as to what really went on in Middle Earth.I have a good idea of what your thinking and would just like to add "Shame On You".

  CORRECTION: After careful re-reading I have discovered that Galadriel and Celeborn did indeed have a child, one daughter called Celebrian. I apologize for the error.
