Sex. We love it! And we need it to keep the party going and by party I mean the human existence. But not so fast, says science. Professor Henry Greely (if that is his real name) says that with the advent of test tube designer babes our future-selves will no longer care for the old in-out.
“‘In 20 to 40 years, when a couple wants a baby, he’ll provide sperm and she’ll provide a punch of skin,’ Prof Greenly told The Times.”
Wow. That’s depressing. But it’s not because the old fashion sexy time will become boring, rather old style baby making will just be much less safe than test-tubing it.
Professor Buzzkill, I mean Greely, goes on:
“[Greely] said that after weighing up the prospective advantages and disadvantages of the healthier embryos, the parents will choose one to be implanted into the woman, which will become their child.”
It’s true as we learn more about the human genome and what to avoid when mixing our DNA together, things will get better for our offspring. But we’ve got to believe folks will keep knocking boots if for nothing else it’s pretty damn fun!
