aimed at a female audience, but not overtly so. as a guy i had no trouble following the narrative, to my dismay. the biggest thing i got from this book was that most women seem to view sex as something they can do as much as something they want to do. a gift, a weapon, a token for trade, a duty, a show of mercy, a way of acting out... the title is very well worded. this book is not about what turns women on, though it does touch on that. but to women, it seems being turned on isn't really a prerequisite to having sex. if you're a male like me, expect to have your rico suave bubble busted. but enlightenment is like that sometimes. for me personally, ignorance is not bliss. i am glad i listened to this book.
... I would want to be a microbiologist! Finished Ancestor's Tale by R. Dawkins and loved it, like the story of asking a fish, how's the water... and the fish answers... water? what water? The chemical world that is us seems far more distant than the edge of the visable universe. I'm reading Red Queen on paper and am now downloading it to my iPOD. The goal is... what/why is sex? It's a better question than it sounds... but I'm still struggling with the Hox gene and how it knows where it is. This is a great mystery and if you liked Ancestor's Tale, you'll find this is a fine trip into that next dimension... water? what water?
