Lecture on Wednesday evening (21 May)
Elisabeth Lloyd (Bloomington) will give an Aspasia Lecture, entitled: The Evolution of the Female Orgasm, in the evening of Wednesday, 21 May, 2014.
The female orgasm in humans presents an evolutionary puzzle. The male orgasm has a straightforward evolutionary function: it makes males want to have sex more often, which in turn makes them more likely to have offspring. But how to account for female orgasm, when nearly three-quarters of women don't always reach orgasm during sexual intercourse?
