The Curious Coupling of Science and SexBook - 2009
"Rich in dexterous innuendo, laugh-out-loud humor and illuminating fact. It's compulsively readable." -- Los Angeles Times Book Review
In ?Bonk, ?the best-selling author of Stiff turns her outrageous curiosity and insight on the most alluring scientific subject of all: sex. Can a person think herself to orgasm? Why doesn't Viagra help women-or, for that matter, pandas? Can a dead man get an erection? Is vaginal orgasm a myth? Mary Roach shows us how and why sexual arousal and orgasm-two of the most complex, delightful, and amazing scientific phenomena on earth-can be so hard to achieve and what science is doing to make the bedroom a more satisfying place.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Author Mary Roach has been called "The funniest science writer in the country" by veritable New Yorker staff, and I heartily agree. Looking for a dry, Hite-Report like tome on sexuality? You sure won't find it here -- but what you will find (and not for the sex-squeamish) is an often-hilarious look at the statistics & factual research behind many of our socially uncomfortable questions. I enjoyed this read so much that I will be tracking down her other best seller, "Stiff : the curious lives of human cadavers", and "Spook: science tackles the afterlife."
