About two weeks ago, The Learning Channel (Cable TV network here in the
U.S.) broadcast a week of documentaries on sexuality (both human and
non-human). One of the fun facts (or maybe theories) that I remember
from one of the shows was that a woman's orgasm, if it occured at the
appropriate time, increased her ability to keep the sperm within her and
increase her chance of conception. I seem to recall also, on another
show (it may have been a recent one by Desmond Morris) they showed how
the female orgasm acted to 'suck' the sperm into the uterus.

It's amazing what one can find to watch on TV when one doesn't want to
watch a national political convention.
