When I’m with you, time is suspended in an unfaltering frequency of bliss, pleasure, and irremediable smiling.

Your soft skin, your genuine grin, and your strong hands catapult my mind from reality to surreality.

And it just stays there.

We just stay there — here. Embracing each other.

A minute is an hour, and an hour is a second. Time is not a limit in this dimension.

It has long been theorized that it is because males are more prone to “injuries, accidents, and war,” according to this article by the UT Southerwestern Medical Center.

But this write-up by the San Jose State University really clears things up. X chromosomes are literally heavier than Y chromosomes because they have more genetic code, which makes X-chromosome sperm harder to swim upstream.

In fact, X-chromosome sperm have 4.4% more DNA material than Y-chromosome sperm. That’s exactly the same % of more male births and female.

Mind blown.
