It’s sex week on The Loom. Carl Zimmer has a stack of papers on the evolution of sex that need blogging, so he will be covering the topic all week long.  Now, if you haven’t read any of  his stuff on sex, you may want to begin by delving into the world of kinky duck sex.  I owe Carl a special thank you for his Science Online 2010 discussion on duck genitalia, for it not, I may not have been the fasted tweeter in the South to respond to a trivia question regarding the shape of a duck’s penis, and thereby would never have won a copy of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot (which, by the way, is a FANTASTIC read!)
