I was just wondering, has anybody here read "Man of steel, Woman of kleenex" by Larry Niven?
It's really entertaining and actually quite interesting.
It's about why superman wouldn't be able to reproduce with a human female.
Here's a short section from the text.
"Assume a mating between Superman and a human woman designated LL for convenience.
The problem is this. Electroencephalograms taken of men and women during sexual intercourse show that orgasm resembles "a kind of pleasurable epileptic attack." One loses control over one's muscles.
Superman has been known to leave his fingerprints in steel and in hardened concrete, accidentally. What would he do to the woman in his arms during what amounts to an epileptic fit"
So what do you think? (and yes, it's a serious text, allthough quite funny at times)
Read it here:
Reply and tell me what you think about it.
I did not write the "article", it's writen by Larry Niven
