Sex drive: sensual vs. reproductive: any thoughts?

Hello. I'm looking for ideas in the study of the human sex
drive with respect to the idea of a "sensual" sex drive (sex as a
desire for pleasure) versus a "reproductive" (sex as an instinct for
progeniture, "immortality through children", etc.)--and thoughts on
sex drive as a biologically-driven, non-mental function.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Could anyone suggest work on
the subjects?
