Whizzed down to Imperial yesterday evening to see the author of this book lecture on The Evolution of Female Promiscuity. The talk was clear, thoroughly prepared and elegantly constructed, if a little over-performed. While she insisted on drawing attention to some of her clunkier jokes, some of the funniest remarks Dr Judson made were those she made least fuss of. It was also fun for all the family. An audience of nuns would have stayed blush-free for the evening—she even made a point of not showing us her pictures of fancy penises.

The best bit for me probably sounds a bit esoteric, but if you are interested in female comb jelly pro-nuclei sampling multiple male pro-nuclei, here‘s where to go for photos of hot organelle-on-organelle action.
