Like life.
That was the same reasoning for the creature in It Follows. It's the reason why the curse was passed through sexual intercourse; it's one of the earliest acts of adulthood when death is more prevalent than childhood.

Interesting! When you say death is more prevalent than in childhood, you mean adults are more likely to die than children? Or just that adults are closer to dying of old age than children?

I'm not sure I'm following you as to how sex makes death more prevalent. You know, anymore than puberty does. Thanks!

Speaking of which, why do horror movies always show people getting killed during or after having sex? Is it because people let their guard down and become more vulnerable in that situation? I personally don't think the movie makers are trying to imply that sex is evil it's more like they are trying to scare the audience. Like the scene in Psycho when the woman was being stabbed to death while taking a shower. It's a scary idea to be attacked when you are naked and vulnerable.
