Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex

Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The study of sexual physiology ? what happens, and why, and how to make it happen better ? has been a paying career or a diverting sideline for scientists as far-ranging as Leonardo da Vinci and James Watson. The research has taken place behind the closed doors of laboratories, brothels, MRI centers, pig farms, sex-toy R&D labs, and Alfred Kinsey's attic. Mary Roach, ?The funniest science writer in the country? (Burkhard Bilger of The New Yorker), devoted the past two years to stepping behind those doors. Can a person think herself to orgasm? Can a dead man get an erection? Is vaginal orgasm a myth? Why doesn?t Viagra help women ? or, for that matter, pandas? In Bonk, 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 slowly make the bedroom a more satisfying place.

Synopsis:
