Desmond Morris

English zoologist and writer
We never stop investigating. We are never satisfied that we know enough to get by. Every question we answer leads on to another question. This has become the greatest survival trick of our species.More Desmond Morris quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sexual behavior in our species goes through three characteristic phases: pair formation, precopulatory activity, and copulation, usually but not always in that order. The pair-formation stage, usually referred to as courtship, is remarkably prolonged by animal standards.More Desmond Morris quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The female covers her breasts, and then proceeds to redefine their shape with a brassiere. This sexual signaling device may be padded or inflatable, so that it not only reinstates the concealed shape, but also enlarges it, imitating in this way the breast swelling that occurs during sexual arousal.More Desmond Morris quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Biologically speaking, if something bites you it's more likely to be female.More Desmond Morris quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
