The five men had come to the woods so they could better understand their better halves. Their wives had sent them on a weekend of male bonding. They all would take the genome pill and experience life in the woods as females. The effect was temporary, lasting only 96 hours. Once home the wives would have entirely more empathetic husbands. The only risk to the whole project was that if the men got pregnant while they found their emotions they would be stuck in that body for life.
