Jared Diamond

Pourquoi l'amour est un plaisir

€10,50

Pourquoi notre sexualité diffère-t-elle aussi radicalement de celle de nos plus proches ancêtres, les grands singes?

L'animal humain, dont le pénis est d'une dimension au-delà de toute nécessité, ne s'adonne qu'à des relations intimes et privées. Il peut faire l'amour à n'importe quel moment, que le partenaire féminin soit fécondable ou non. D'ailleurs, ce dernier n'en sait rien précisément, et ne fait pas connaître son état aux méles en arborant des couleurs voyantes ni en émettant odeurs et petits cris.

L'homme se distingue également en demeurant la plupart du temps auprès de la femme qu'il a rendue féconde et il l'aide à élever ses enfants.

La sexualité de l'homme, comparée à celle des animaux, est des plus étranges, mais elle a joué dans l'évolution de l'espèce un rôle comparable à celui de la taille du cerveau et de la station debout.
