Of mice and men-Go go go!


Sometimes, in this troubled world of ours, a headline or news article jumps out at you, and screams out “YEAH BABY!” Sometimes it is about an appalling disaster or a tragic accident, at other times about some great new discovery which will benefit all of mankind, but all too often it will appear as a footnote that appeals to  for the  curious amongst us, or to those of us with a wicked sense of humour who might, very slightly, be insane.

So it was that with unparalleled joy I came across  a wonderful story about sex mad, and virtually sex-suicidal marsupials. What a story, and what a precautionary or maybe an uplifting story for us all; depending on what sex you are as a reader.

If you are a guy then , potentially, you might feel envious of your marsupial counterparts. The male mice are very much in demand during the breeding season, they can apparently copulate for 12 hours, and they produce super fit sperm which is avidly accepted by the female in question. What a stud, I hear you cry, Up and at ’em, You then join in as a chorus, but beware guys, life, for these fecund Little Sperm Donors, is not quite as happy s it may seem. Apparently there is  a price to be paid for such pleasures, as by the end of the season they are so knackered that very often they die

If you are a lass, then your view might be very different, in fact I imagine that may of you, upon reading this story will burst out laughing, before raising up a great cheer. Granted, in nature, the female mice suffer from a high mortality rate (reasons unknown or not stated),but if you are a woman, just think of the benefits that might accrue. 12 hour bashes, with a low risk of pregnancy; so long as you are careful. Multiple virile partners, all willing, and eager, and certainly keen to please. You don’t even have to look after them afterwards, as they’ll soon die of over time

Sp spare a thought, either way, for our distant cousins, and I can but leave you with the thoughts of the scientist Diane Fisher, for without her work on mice and insect life cycles, for without her work this story might never have seen the light of day

“I do feel sorry for the poor males of species with die-off. They are bright and inquisitive, she says, but “you can’t get too attached”.

Oh how true, how so very, very true!
