Philadelphia Enquirer science writer, Faye Flam, examines how the desire to 'score' has profoundly shaped males over millions of years. Sweeping from the origin of the sexes to the sexual foibles of 21st century humans, Flam shows how a small difference in the size of the first sperm and eggs resulted in an evolutionary trade-off that has affected both males and females. Within this tug-of-war context, Flam explores a wide range of male behaviours and courtship strategies and ultimately reveals that males have been shaped by competing for the favours of the female sex.
Faye Flam has been covering science for The Philadelphia Inquirer since 1995. In June 2005, she started writing Carnal Knowledge, a weekly column about the science of sex. She has also written for New Scientist, Science, and The Economist, and her search for a good science story has taken her everywhere from the South Pole to Greenland to NASA s zero-g plane. A graduate of California Institute of Technology, Flam was recently a Knight-Wallace journalism fellow at the University of Michigan. She lives in Philadelphia.
