Kristin Buxton around 3:07 PM -0700 on 9/14/97, made things perfectly
clear with this:

> I read a book not too long ago by Robin Baker that was quite interesting.
> _Sperm Wars: The Science of Sex_ (ISBN = 0465081797) It's a look at how
> evolution has shaped our behaviors about sex in general, and specifically at
> the evolution of sperm (which has proposes is a bit more interesting that
> has been previously though in terms of function).
> from the back cover:

back cover? back side? rear entry?

> "Less than 1 percent of sperm in the male ejaculate is designed to fertilize
> the female. The rest, what we have previously written off as "misshapen
> sperm," are there either to block the passage to the womb should other men's
> sperm approach or to engage other men's sperm in mortal combat.

sluts, they're all sluts...

> "Female orgasm heps a woman get pregnant by the partner of her choice.
> With orgasm, her retention rate climbs to as high as 90 percent, making
> orgasm a tool through which the woman can tip the competition in favor of one
> gene contributor or another.

and we're now saying biggest dickest is solely responsible for the big "O"?

> "Approximately 10 percent of all children born to married couples do not have
> their "father's" gene. A woman is more likely to be unfaithful during her
> fertile phase. Moreover, she is less likely to use or insist on the man's
> using contraception on such occasions. The fact that the apeal of the
> stranger is solely genetic--and does not lie in his promise to provide
> and protection for her and her offspring--may explain this finding, one
>of the
> strangest in this book.

sluts, they're all sluts...

> "Without sperm warfare, men would have tiny genitals and produce few sperm.
> Women would not have orgasms; there would be no thrusting during intercourse;
> no sex dreams or fantasies, no masturbation; and we should each feel like
> intercourse only a dozen times or so in our entire lives--those occasions
> conception is possible and desireable. Life itself would be very different."

well that would be an improvement on some people on this list's sex lives.
