Life does become a little more difficult when they [the films] don’t have an IMDb entry...therefore, they end up here...films in dire need of publicity/promotion/marketing...

2004

Spain | 58 min
Es evidente que hombres y mujeres somos diferentes. Esta diferencia se demuestra en muchos aspectos como el físico, el funcional, el reproductivo, el psicológico.... ¿Qué más hay de diferente entre los dos sexos? ¿Cuál es la base de esta identidad de género u orientación sexual? ¿Es genética, hormonal, psicológica, familiar, social,....?
Eduardo Punset ha viajado por toda Europa en busca de respuestas entrevistando a expertos aporta su visión sobre la relación entre neuroanatomía y orientación sexual, las diferencias de la estructura cerebral en gays y lesbianas, e incluso de la importancia de la genética a la hora de encontrar una identidad sexual. Se habla de los últimos experimentos realizados respecto a estos temas así como de la importancia de la conducta, la familia o el entorno social. El programa trata de profundizar en una cuestión a primera vista muy simple y simplista: ¿Los homosexuales nacen o se hacen? Y si "nacen", ¿cuáles son los procesos bioquímicos, neuronales y genéticos que los determinan?
