    The “new” research she links to is… that same 2002 article from Gordon Gallup. Who’s an evolutionary “psychologist,” not a doctor or even a biologist.

    Old geezers like Prof. Gallup and I might wish our semen could drug college coeds. Or even that the alleged benefits of unprotected semen consumption outweighed the confirmed risks. Unfortunately in order to persuade our partners to forgo barrier methods we’re going to have to continue relying on ordinary charm, confidence, respect, and trustworthiness — oh, and history of condom use with previous partners.
