Reproduction is the only constant in human history – from our beginnings as single cell organisms to the sexual practices we see today.

Many of our social behaviours have been built and altered by our attitudes towards reproduction and the methods of passing our genes on to the next generation. Technologies frequently manipulate this most basic of human instincts to produce new ways to sexually interact with one another.

Our authors consider the future of courtship, contraceptives, conception, childbirth, and some of the things in between.
