BizReport.com might think Aussie men are happier surfing the web than having sex, but anyone who's met an Aussie male can attest to their are reputation for virility and sex appeal. Just ask Australian heartthrob, Hugh Jackman, who was just voted "Sexiest Man Alive" by People Magazine. And the best part is, they're spreading the love via the 'Australian Silent Sperm Invasion.'
Say what? Almost a third of sperm donors in Britain are foreigners with a majority of them Australian backpackers looking to earn money to support their travels, according to new report. This might explain all the trips my Aussie guy pal, Imelda Matt, has been making to the United Kingdom these days [kidding!] but it doesn't explain why the UK is facing a shortage of British men willing to donate their sperm [not kidding!]
Putting Aussie studs and sperm shortages aside, there is a fashion collection based on the relationship between sperms and eggs you should keep on your radar. Each piece in the collection challenges the commonly held belief that science and art are unable to communicate with one another. And, I must admit, it never ceases to amaze me.
"Primitive Streak," a joint venture of fashion designer Helen Storey and her sister, developmental biologist Dr. Kate Storey, is a collection of 27 garments elucidating ten key events in the 1,000 hours following fertilization. The collection has been traveling the world since 1997, and hopes to find a permanent home in 2009. And, if I'm lucky, it will travel to Northern California at least once before retiring to some faraway museum. But even if I miss it, there's always more fashionable sperm to keep me distracted.
