Who needs sex?

22 03 2007

For all of those who bemoan their virtually nonexistent sex-lives, behold; a creature which has not had sex for 100 million years. Somehow that makes you all feel a lot better about only getting it once a week, doesn’t it? Unfortunately for the men out there this comes with a price. You just know that every woman out there now has a new excuse to avoid sex. Long gone will be the “I have a headache” and instead she’ll cart out “Why do we need to have sex anyway? The bdelloid rotifers don’t”

Don’t believe me? Notice the key words in this paragraph:

The microscopic animals, less than four times the length of a human sperm, are all female, yet have evolved into different species that fill different ecological niches.
