Turn that light on. Even as late as the Clinton administration, his Surgeon General, Joycelyn Elders, was fired for suggesting it should be promoted. We've split the atom, but we don't really understand an orgasm. View all 22 comments. Not as raunchy as I'd hoped for, but then the subtitle doesn't exactly set you up for raunch.

She literally traveled ssx world from Danish pig farms to a private Egyptian clinic, all over the U. I didn't think she could write a better book than Stiff: Because I apparently already knew all the freaky weird details about sex Before Viagra, guys who couldn't maintain a good stiffy would often have "stilts" of some sort inserted inside of their penis skin, and they would essentially wander through life with a half-boner that never went away so they could still bonk.
Only Hardcore Reserach Nuts. Really not a mood-setter, though, if you get my drift. If you are eating, you might not wanna read this review right coipling.
Because eventually it becomes like any other word. Wonder what her next topic will be? PLUS, there's rats forced to wear polyester pants for a year to see if it cuts into how much action they get.
Roach strikes a nice balance between science, history and humor to keep the book interesting and readable. Yes, of course Me: They tend to take their time about it much more, to spend more time with foreplay, and to communicate more actively with their mates during bonk.
If the man or boy became aroused in his sleep, his skin would come into contact with tiny spikes! So much for that oh-so-feminine insult of frigidity.
Bonk: the Curious Coupling of Science and Sex, by Mary Roach
That written, this book is not as interesting as Roach's book on cadavers. Even as late as the Clinton administration, his Surgeon General, Joycelyn Elders, was fired for suggesting it should be promoted.

AND, perhaps this is the most important and encouraging fact of all. This is my first Mary Roach book and I was immediately drawn to her writing style.
Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex
Hats off and pants off to you all. It's that sort of book. As is any writer who gives me this moment oc Zen: Yeah, I'm thinking so. Move around a bit.
As some other reviewers have noted, it is surprising how little is known about human sexuality. This book is—if not better than the act itself—then a hilarious and entertaining alternative. The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers very soon. But what's behind it?
It's at this point you can see that Roach is 'rounding third' in her book and realizes she doesn't have the goods to bring it all home. It's difficult to say who deserves more credit for bravery, Mary or Ed, but the result is a hilarious scene for a book that she calls a tribute to the men and women who brave ridicule to investigate why we do what we do, in bed—or don't.
Stroking or kissing their clit gets them off.
Mary Roach has a unique style that has turned her into a household name. Is vaginal orgasm a myth? Masturbating for Health The Immaculate Orgasm: I thought I knew a lot about sex.
