We were told that sex was transactional, something you provided your lawfully wedded husband in exchange for the security and comfort of family life. Needless to say, like most young women who came of age after the sexual revolution, I defied that bargain. Sex is fun, Mom.
Because of the DSK and Schwarzenegger scandals, there has been probably more than enough public consideration in the last week or two of questions like: Are powerful men pigs and if so, why?

Female pigs' reproductive systems recognize whether a sperm will produce a boy or a girl before it reaches and fertilizes the egg, and their oviducts fallopian tubes change in response. Scientists think this may be a way females unconsciously influence the sex of their offspring. The findings, reported in the open access journal BMC Genomicsshow that different genes are active in female pigs' reproductive system cells in experimental conditions when all X female or all Y male sperm are present. Although in nature, the ratio would normally bethis suggests females might be able to change the environment of the oviduct to favor one sex over the other, giving that sperm a better chance of winning the race to the egg.

I thought that was a rather bold statement — more than microaggression. My female colleague was looking me right in the eye and firing away, boldly. It occurred to me, in that moment of suspended time that occurs when people make surprisingly offensive comments, that if I were to venture such a bold statement about the female of the species I would most certainly be out of a job before the sun set on my patriarchal behind.
Some say that depositing the sperm closer to the cervix gives Y chromosome-carrying sperm a better chance to reach the egg first. Another urges would-be moms to eat a more acidic diet if they want to have a girl. Much of the advice focuses on how to give sperm carrying either an X or Y chromosome some sort of advantage, but for the most part, none of it has been validated by science.
