As a branding exercise, I've been working on tackling a fictitious start-up consisting of two fashion retailer brands.

How did sexual reproduction evolve?

How did we evolve separate genders? I assume it happened pretty early on, since most animals have a male and female, but wouldn't it have had to happen to lots of things at once for it to actually work?
