Abstract

Isn’t it obvious what sex is? Not really. True, everyone seems to think they have a fairly good idea of what sex is — but perhaps for this reason it is often not given a specific definition in the scientific literature. And when a definition is given, it often deviates from others. There are so many ways of making offspring and combining the genetic material of different individuals that it may be futile to hope for a single definitive definition.
