Quote of the Day
The world is well supplied with spiders whose male ancestors died after mating. The world is bereft of spiders whose would-be ancestors never mated in the first place.
Romantic love allows you to focus mating energy. Attachment sustains that relationship as long as necessary to raise your baby.
In general, men are wired to notice obvious signs that convey interest in mating - a warm smile, for example - and ignore other subtleties, like if your lipstick is faded.
Love between a man and a woman is founded on the mating instinct and is not free from desire and self-seeking. But to have a friend and to be true under any and all trials is the mark of a man!
The genus Drosophila is one of the great success stories. There's hundreds of species within the genus.

I am a very good shot. I have hunted for every kind of animal. But I would never kill an animal during mating season.
I think by and large, humans prefer to think of themselves as minds from the neck up. We don't really like to think of ourselves as another animal, another digesting, excreting, mating, snoring, sleeping kind of sack of guts. I don't think we like that. I think we'd rather not be reminded of it.
Thus mating of females was strictly along the lines of paternal song.
Peter R. Grant
All nature's creatures join to express nature's purpose. Somewhere in their mounting and mating, rutting and butting is the very secret of nature itself.
