Bryant, you said something that was incorrect and I corrected it.
Then you got mad and got personal. Baker and Bellis did not say,
as *you did*, that:

Baker and Bellis *did say*, as *I did*:

To quote you: See the literature, for goodness sake: Baker and
Bellis 1993. Anim. Behav., 46: 887-909. And this time, read it,
and look up the appropriate refs from it and read them too.

Having read Baker and Bellis, I see you do have the refs, and in
fact you would have seen my correction of your inaccurate
statement was valid if you had just read their paper carefully.
I'm gonna have to stick to my assessment of your attitude; I don't
like it cause it sucks, even if uterine contractions during female
orgasm don't, as you mistakenly insisted.
