Sex and death

Dear Editor:”… The [human] male has the largest penis of any primate.” “The Naked Ape” by Desmond Morris.”A single teaspoon of male sperm would be sufficient to father every member of Homo sapiens alive today, and all would be different.” “The Social Contract” by Robert Ardery.Sex is necessary for our survival as a species. Accounting for the time and effort it took to evolve the fit and function of our male and female genitals can cause cognitive difficulties. We have come a long way from the days when we were single-cell creatures and reproduced by splitting in two.It seems weird that nature has created great complexity in the development of reproduction when it’s nature’s law that everybody dies.Be brave comrades.KNCB MooreSanta Barbara, Calif.
