The ability to reproduce came in when evolution decided on sexual reproduction instead of asexual reproduction. Animals probably could tell how they had to reproduce by instinct. Our kissing, hugging, etc came later and was invented by us.

Actually for more than half of the history of life, beings were limited to asexually reproducing photoplankton, which very very very slowly evolved into stromatolites (pic in the left) due to the change in Earth's environment. After a very long time these evolved the process of meiosis which lead to a huge boom in speciation. After that you have the Precambrian, Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic. (These ages measure and record exactly how speciation happened after the birth of meiosis but my point is that the majority of the history of life took place when organisms reproduced asexually.) Actually things were going pretty slowly up in the Paleozoic period, the only noteworthy living things were the small invertebrates and reptiles and clams and things before the Permian extinction. There's a theory going around that as Earth shifted around and started to gain some mountains, there was more nutrient runoff from said mountains leading to an explosion in red algae. This gave up and coming species the nutrients and surplus they needed to gain new parts and mechanisms. That's really the beginning of life right there, after that you have the trilobites evolving into all sorts of crazy things, dinosaurs were in the Mesozoic, just everything started around the end of the Permian extinction. Anyway, that's why we have sex.

The same way most great changes happen: self loathing. A single cell hated itself so much, it tried to rip itself in two. Except those two parts didn't die, they just became two more self hating cells who just kept splitting and splitting.

Well you have to remember.. we didn't just pop up as sentient humans one day. The original ape that lead to us was nothing more than another animal with the basic instincts of eat, ****, reproduce, sleep, and repeat until they die.
None of it happened in one day, it just developed that way over a period of hundreds of thousands of years. The same reason why animals besides mammals reproduce the way they do and such.

With how evolution is, survival of the fittest and all that, it's simply a way that works, so it survived while others faded away.

1) My original post was intended to shed light upon the fact that you all seem to be conflating sexual reproduction with reproduction in general. See post #113.

OP made no such distinction.

2) Sexual reproduction is NOT an interaction between two species, according to the biological species concept.

Sexual reproduction is at its core a means to most effectively shuffle DNA to maximize individual differences. The greater the variability within a species, the more likely it can survive a cataclysmic event. Bacteria practice a simple version with a Sex pilus and plasmid, with a protein tube to transfer a couple genes. Eukaryotic meiosis allows the simplest act of sex by production of gametes (with a half copy of genes which can be shuffled with a half copy of another). The act of uniting gametes has become more complex through evolutionary time, and many independently evolved methods exist. Internal fertilization in vertebrates started with proto-reptiles, which could lay eggs in arid environments if fertilization was allowed to occur inside the female, so that a shell could then be formed for protection.
