Memailed #1!

Congratulations to Dinitia Smith, whose piece in today's NYT (discussing Dr. Elisabeth A. Lloyd's new book, "The Case of the Female Orgasm: Bias in the Science of Evolution") is now MOST E-MAILED (MEMAILED!).

Ooh!
I call coinage:
"memailed"-- Described the NYT's Most E-mailed article.
Ties together an acronym (Everybody Loves an Acronym -- ELA) and the word "meme," to denote the fact that memailed articles stick in the mass consciousness.

Anyway, sounds like a great book.
I like that it pushes artifacts-- byproducts of the way we develop or are put together-- over evolutionary just-so stories that a clever biologist can make up to fit any trait.
A little Occam's Razor to take the wind out of the sails of people who thing attached / unattached earlobes and innie / outie belly buttons are for avoiding saber-toothed cats or communicating via pheromones, or whatever.
Anyway, I'm never going to read it. Busy, busy.

But if I link to it I can make all sorts of references to sex.
Which is sure to boost my readership.

So, let's all hear it for the female orgasm!
Explosion

Which, according to Dr. Lloyd (or, according to Smith's account of Dr. Lloyd), probably doesn't provide any evolutionary advantage, so women shouldn't feel bad if they don't have them frequently.

pheromones to attract woman said...

Hey The Litvak

I was researching pheromones cologne. This seems like a crazy idea. Can it really work?
