Mutant offspring of a threesome

Author Grègoire Bouillier, born of a threesome, discusses his origins in the New York Times Magazine.

“You are a love child,” my mother used to tell me when I was little. I never knew quite what this meant, though the sound of it made me uneasy. When she revealed (much later, and under questioning) the circumstances surrounding my conception, she passed along something she claimed to have read in a magazine: that when two men ejaculate into a woman’s vagina, their sperm, instead of competing, team up to fertilize the ovum, and they create a mutant.

For some reason, slogans like “Make Love Not War” and “Set Pleasure Free” struck Bouillier, “at age 7, as slightly stale.” (Thanks, Amitava.)
