Bonk : the curious coupling of science and sex
Mary Roach
Adult Nonfiction QP251 .R568 2008

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Roach's glimpse into the inner workings of sex, be it the orgasm, erection or even the use of Viagra on animals, is a refreshing and fascinating study. Sandra Burr offers a straightforward, unfiltered reading that captures Roach's sense of humor perfectly. Taking the taboo out of the touchy subject matter and giving listeners an entertaining, unbiased look at sexual intercourse, Burr offers an everyday approach to the hot topic that will appeal to a wide ranging audience. Simultaneous release with the W.W. Norton hardcover (Reviews, Feb. 25). (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Roach (Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers) has written an incredibly informative history of human sexual physiology, one about the "dirty old men" (and women)--researchers--who, despite societal taboos, have tried to understand the biology of sex. Narrator Sandra Burr's enjoyment of Roach's descriptions and wry comments is obvious (Burr both reads and directs for Brilliance), making this a pleasure to hear. While probably not a great choice for children, this program isn't pornographic, and librarians should not hesitate to put it on general library shelves. Recommended for all adult recreational audiobook collections. [Audio clip available through; the Norton hc also received a starred review, LJ 3/1/08.--Ed.]--I.
