4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting insight into the science behind sex, 12 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Bonk: The Curious Coupling Of Sex And Science (Paperback)
I have read Mary Roach's other book "Stiff" which I found superb, I will say I was a little disappointed with this book. Mary Roach is a fantastic author/researcher/journalist and her humour is great yet she deals with the topics of her books very well, and in this case the delicate subject of sex. Its very well written, although not a flowing as "Stiff", it seemed to jump from topic to topic. And quite a lot of the research seemed a bit dated - set in the 50s and 60s, and less of the modern post-1990s work (this could be due to the lack of reserch in the field I am not sure).

I will say this was a fascinating read, very well researched, I would recommend to anyone who is not squemish, and she does not shy away in some of the graphic detail.
