Lord. That's worse than here.
Eeek. And I thought we were about as bad as it gets...

The fertility thing: there's a book called 'Why Is Sex Fun?' by Jared Diamond which has some interesting insights into why human females, unlike many other mammals, have disguised fertility patterns (ie. they don't have radically changing pheromones, change colour or otherwise 'display' their fertility, but have sex at all times of the month even when unlikely to conceive). I don't have the book to hand, so this is generalising wildly, but it's apparently to do with the male tendency to promiscuity; if women only had sex when fertile, or were visibly fertile, the male would only hang round during those fertile times, knocking them up then moving on.
