In nature, most showy and beautiful creatures exist for the sake of sex. Plants, in order to spread pollen to as many mates as possible, produce gorgeous blossoms that attract bees. Some animals use their splendid appearances to attract attention from the opposite sex, while others become extremely talented singers or dancers. Every note and every movement they make is an anxious cry: “Pick me! Pick me!” They also duel with those of the same sex to secure successful reproduction and an excellent mate. The battle of the sexes begins, and Dr. Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation gives us a faithful account of this struggle.
