From the Paper:"Human sexuality deviates from all other animals in the animal kingdom in several important ways. Over the course of evolutionary development, the hominid ancestors of humans diverged from their closest primate ancestors approximately seven million years ago (Diamond 9). Relatively few genetic differences have occurred since then to evidence themselves in contemporary humans; humans differ from chimpanzees, their closest ape relatives, in only 1.6 percent of our DNA (Diamond 8). This small percentage of genetic variation, however, has produced major biological..."
