    Psychology deals with human behaviors. People look for sex. They behave like animals on bed. It’s just human sexual acts.

    Psychology is based on the basic animal instincts – survival and procreation.

    Psychology is a very broad field, and in fact most of it has very little to do with sex. Psychologists are not all clinicians; there are many different subdisciplines like developmental and cognitive psychology. They may study how babies acquire language abilities, or what part of the brain is activated when people are solving math problems compared to word problems. My area of study is social psychology, which investigates topics ranging from stereotyping and prejudice to attitudes to the ways people form impressions about others. Sex may occasionally be addressed as a research topic, but it certainly is nowhere near being a predominant focus of the field.

    You are probably thinking of Freudian psychoanalysis, a very narrow area, which does place quite a bit of emphasis on sex and sexual desires. Even among clinical psychologists (the ones who treat mental illness), Freud’s ideas have largely been revised or replaced by more recent theories about behavior and the causes of mental illness that are far less sexually-based.
