Their emotional impact is powerful enough that we find it hard to look at them objectively. We don’t often question them. We recognize the act of sex is the way we conceive our children. We accept sexual drive and attraction as potent forces shaping our personal identities and our relationships.

Likewise, we accept that our lives must end. But what is all this really about? Can science provide insights into the deeper meaning of sexual attraction? Can it explain why we must die?As scientists grapple with these questions some surprising discoveries are coming to light. It seems that sex and death are both inventions, weapons evolved in a never-ending battle against parasites.
