Sex and Science Made Hilarious

Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and SexBonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex by Mary Roach
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Is there any subject that Mary Roach can't make fascinating and humorous? I don't want to write any spoilers about the book, but I will say that she deftly examines the work of Kinsey, Masters and Johnsons, and numerous other current day sex researchers and physicians. If you ever wondered about pheromones, libido, attraction, physiological aspects of sex, sexual dysfunctions or sexual norms throughout the ages, then this book is for you. Roach’s footnotes alone are worth the cover price. Well researched, insightful, and very very funny. I highly recommend it.
