You know, sorry. The morning I discovered the email announcing that Snctm had a television series airing on Showtime, I began preparing to hate-watch it. I figured a TV show was just another way for founder Damon Lawner and his inner circle to congratulate themselves for building this emporium for the male gaze. After watching the first two episodes, I decided I was right about it. I hesitate to call Naked Snctm a reality show. It has some of the trappings of the reality show, leading the viewer along with Damon as he goes about his version of a normal day.
Some archaeologists say the image of caveman as macho big-game hunter is just a figment of our 20th Century imagination. Then what were Neanderthal gender roles? Most likely, fathers took more care of their kids as males and females approached the same body size. Human men and women are closer in body size than chimps. So when in evolutionary history did monkeys learn what pots and pans are all about?
The Human Zoo , a follow-up book by Morris that examined the behaviour of people in cities, was published in The Naked Ape , which was serialised in the Daily Mirror newspaper and has been translated into 23 languages, depicts human behaviour as largely evolved to meet the challenges of prehistoric life as a hunter see Nature versus nurture. The book was so named because out of species of monkeys and apes , only humans Homo sapiens sapiens are not covered in hair. Desmond Morris, the author, who had been the curator of mammals at London Zoo , said his book was intended to popularise and demystify science. Morris said that Homo sapiens not only have the largest brains of all higher primates, but that sexual selection in human evolution has caused humans to have the highest ratio of penis size to body mass.
