The Naked Woman - Wikipedia
I wonder how many specimens Desmond Morris inspected before deciding that "every woman has a beautiful body", the statement which launches this book. Not enough, anyway, or he would surely have come across at least one that had gone wonky or started falling apart. He says our bodies are beautiful because they are "the brilliant end-point of millions of years of evolution". But you could say that about a slug. Still, the admiration evinced throughout Morris's "guided tour of the female body" will make a nice change for women who have come to detest their unwieldy carcasses for not resembling the bodies of unusually thin pubescent girls, and fear the consequences should they ever stop attempting to disguise the general wear and tear that men find so nauseating in our sex. With a lack of restraint that verges, occasionally, on the reckless, Morris rhapsodises everything that takes his fancy. Most memorably, hair, which stirs reflections on men's "quest for the softly flowing locks they dream of caressing".
It describes the female body from an evolutionary point of view. It is divided in several chapters, each dedicated to a part of the body, from hair to foot. For each, Morris explains the structure and function of the part, discusses its evolution, the social importance throughout human history, and the artificial modifications and decorations employed by different cultures.
However, if a couple were having intercourse in the water, pregnancy would be just as likely because the sperm would enter directly into the female reproductive tract. The outside temperature and physical environment would not have any impact on sperm survival. How long can sperm survive if frozen.
Scientists believe that sperm cells can survive indefinitely once they are frozen, as long as the temperature remains stable.
