From the essay: "Scientists have discovered that there is a brain region in the cortex, called inferior-parietal lobule (IPL) which is significantly larger in men than in women. The left side IPL is larger in men than the right side. In women, this asymmetry is reversed, although the difference between left and right sides is not so large as in men. This is the same area which was shown to be larger in the brain of Albert Einstein, as well as in other physicists and mathematicians.
Another study by the same group has shown that two areas in the frontal and temporal lobes related to language (the areas of Broca and Wernicke) were significantly larger in women, thus providing a biological reason for women's notorious superiority in language-associated thoughts."

Male, Female: The Evolution of Human Sex Differences by David C. Geary attempts to explain most human sex differences from a single theoretical perspective, Darwin's principles of sexual selection.
This book seeks to explain, not simply describe, sex differences in parental care, mating strategies and preferences, social motives and emotionality, physical attributes, physical development, play patterns, social development, brain and cognitive functioning, as well as academic skills, psychological and behavioral problems (e.g., violence and depression), occupational choices and status, among many other things. Moreover, sex differences in many of these areas are examined across cultures and historical periods in order to illustrate both cultural and biological influences on the differences between boys and girls and men and women.

Mating Strategies, Emotions, Body, Brain, Behaviour, Skills'.

Analyse any human emotion, no matter how far it may be removed from the sphere of sex, and you are sure to discover somewhere the primal impulse, to which life owes its perpetuation. ... The primitive stages can always be re-established; the primitive mind is, in the fullest meaning of the word, imperishable. ... Mans most disagreeable habits and idiosyncrasies, his deceit, his cowardice, his lack of reverence, are engendered by his incomplete adjustment to a complicated civilisation. It is the result of the conflict between our instincts and our culture. (Sigmund Freud)
We get a lot of people writing to us asking questions about sex. So we have added an 'Ask a Question' feature to our sexuality pages - to help share questions and answers as a way of helping one another.
