Grandma bibliophile! Audible books make reading with an active life possible.
Very good book. Mary Roach presents a touchy subject to some, in a witty and understandable way. Sandra Burr was a very good narrator, her inflections and timing were pretty impressive. Made for an informative and entertaining book.
An informative and sometimes amusing exploration of human sexuality. Somewhat imbalanced, however. She spends a huge amount on penile implants, but other aspects of human sexuality are barely touched upon.
Yuck, just yuck. This makes Ms. Roach' book Stiff look tame by comparison. I enjoy her sense of humor, but some things are just not worth knowing.

Full of interesting information and great humor, I was "wowed" as much as I laighed. I recommend this book to anyone curious and interested in sex and how it is studied and, perhaps more importantly, to everyone who is ill, for any reason, because laughter heals and we laughed often! Thank you Mary Roach for bring kevity to the taboo.

Often funny, occasionally academic, and generally informative, this book does a good job of summarizing how the scientific study of sex has developed over time. In probably the most honest and numerous section, the author talks her husband in to participating in a coital MRI--then describes it. However, after awhile, the reading was boring and clinical. My second Roach book, always well researched and written.
I don't understand the fascination people have with Mary Roach. This is the second book I've tried of hers and I suffered through both. It reads like a textbook, not a novel. The narration is dry and void of any humor.
