Yesterday’s Daily Mail has an interesting piece by A N Wilson about the future of genetics and humanity. Wilson reviews a book “Like a Virgin” by a geneticist at Imperial College London in which the author argues that the future of reproduction lies in artificial wombs and sperm. I haven’t read the book, however, according to Wilson the author sees a world in which sex becomes redundant and in which men can have babies.
There is nothing new in this. Many years ago I read a book by Professor Lee M Silver entitled “remaking Eden in the 21st Century” in which the author argues that sex will become a recreational activity while reproduction will move to the lab. Eat your heart out Aldous Huxley!
