Abstract:

"Birds & Bees: A Sexual Study is an intriguing, provocative and exquisitely-illustrated work exploring the fascinating world of procreation and sexual behavior. It is an intimate and revealing portrait of the animal kingdom engaged in life's most essential activity." "Internationally-acclaimed illustrator Dugald Stermer presents this extraordinary visual essay on the rituals of courtship and seduction and, of course, the sex act itself. The book focuses on three stages of mating: Foreplay - the rituals of display, dispute and seduction; Mating - from engagement to exchange; and Procreation - waiting, watching, and protecting." "Stermer's beautifully expressive watercolors and accompanying text offer a remarkable perspective on this world of dance, harems, group sex and cannibalism. It is a world where abstinence or chastity is never an option, except between humans."--BOOK JACKET.
