Like a Virgin PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Like a Virgin free pdf Most cultures tell the tale of a maiden who gives birth untouched by a man, and in the wild there are plenty of creatures - turkeys, Komodo 'dragons', and the 'Jesus Christ' lizard (which even walks on water) - that take various approaches to making babies without having sex. Soon, humans will have that option, too. In Like a Virgin, biologist and science writer Aarathi Prasad examines inconceivable ideas about conception, from a Renaissance recipe for creating a child (bury semen in manure for forty days) to the search for a real-life virgin mother in the 1950s. She then takes us to maverick, cutting-edge labs that are today inventing sex-less reproduction, from manufactured eggs to artificial wombs and beyond. Like a Virgin delivers an astonishing exploration of the mysteries of sex and evolution - past, present, and future.
