A Necessary Warning

Anyone interested in how human and primate evolution helps make sense of our lives today should above all else avoid reading Eric's blog, The Primate Diaries.

That's because if you have any interest at all in the topic -- even just a little interest -- you will discover The Primate Diaries are so remarkable, so beautifully and knowledgeably written, so relevant to how we live today, that you will be inexorably drawn towards your monitor until you find yourself actually licking the essays as if they were the happiest candy in the world. And that could prove extraordinarily embarrassing should your spouse or significant other walk in on you to find you making love to a blog more passionately than you have made love to them all month.

It won't happen, you say? You're just too strong willed to make love to a blog, you say? Fine, you've been warned. So don't come running back here to sue me if clicking on any of the above links leads to your sleeping on the couch while your partner fumes about your betrayal of them.

Good stuff.
The post on "Sexuality and Double Standards" was great.

Wow. I've never heard my writing called lickable before. I'm just pleased that someone outside of my own head finds it interesting. Thank you so much, and keep the questions coming!

Ashwin, I loved that essay on sexuality and double standards! You might want to look down the left side of Eric's blog for some of his earlier posts too -- he has many -- and I do mean many -- that are professional grade essays.

Eric, Welcome! You've got one of my top two favorite science blogs! The other is Not Exactly Rocket Science by Ed Yong. That you so much for producing such excellence and distributing it for free!

Thank you for linking to Eric's blog. I'm really enjoying it as well, though I'm afraid to lick. These monitors we have at work are really disgusting.
