For December 2012: Read It & Steep chose Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Sex and Science. I felt that I had to share this outrageous cover from the UK version. Those wily Brits! So risque!
Amazon.com‘s description of the book is as follows:
In Bonk, the best-selling author of Stiff turns her outrageous curiosity and insight on the most alluring scientific subject of all: sex. Can a person think herself to orgasm? Why doesn’t Viagra help women-or, for that matter, pandas? Can a dead man get an erection? Is vaginal orgasm a myth? Mary 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 make the bedroom a more satisfying place.
