Samenvatting:
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. The author devoted the past two years to stepping behind those  Meer lezen...

Science infused with humor

door booksonthebeach (Gepubliceerd door gebruiker WorldCat 2008-10-10) Uitstekend Permalink

I never realized a scientific look at sex (research) throughout history could be so very funny!  I was thoroughly entertained and fascinated.  If the book wasn't now a day overdue (and on hold for someone else), I would go back to the beginning and read it again because it was just that...

schema:description"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. The author 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 this book she 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."
