My old man: The truth about men's biological clocks

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

Women have long battled with their biological clocks, but with men like Tony Randall cranking out kids in their seventies, many men don't really think about their biological clocks. In the wake of new studies, though, that might change. Lisa Belkin, New York Times Magazine contributing writer, makes the case in this week’s Magazine that there’s now even more evidence that when it comes to making babies, men have a sell by date.

Lisa Belkin's article will be available in the New York Times Magazine on Sunday.
