    Why do testicles hang the way they do? Is there an adaptive function to the female orgasm? What does it feel like to want to kill yourself? Does “free will” really exist? And why is the penis shaped like that anyway? In Why Is the Penis Shaped Like That?, the research psychologist and award-winning columnist Jesse Bering features more than thirty of his most popular essays from Scientific American and Slate, as well as two new pieces, that take readers on a bold and captivating journey through some of the most taboo issues related to evolution and human behavior.

    Would you listen to Why Is the Penis Shaped Like That? again? Why?

    Jesse Bering answers all those nagging little question about human gentiles, they reason why they're shaped like that, adding not only humor but his own brand of "punny" humor.


    What did you like best about this story?

    While some of the research and science - not much, just some - wasn't my cup of tea, Jesse Bering did an excellent job of creating an excellent flow from one subject to the next.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Although I can't say I have a favorite chapter, the fact that Jesse Bering read his own book was an extra pleasure. Mr. Bering has a great reading voice; not to fast or too slow.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Many of the authors puns were well placed and created many laugh out loud moments. I probably looked like an idiot to the other drivers, laughing while doing my commute. He's a quick wit and the humor was well placed.

    Even in Grundy, Alaska, its unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem.

    Would you listen to How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf again? Why?

    Yes, I plan to listen to How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf again because it was so much fun to listen to! Amanda Ronconi's performance was pitch perfect on all the female characters. I do have to admit, though, that I was put off just a smidgen by her attempt at the male "voices". But all in all, it was a clever and fun romp.

    Story
    What did you love best about Blood Cross?

    I like a good story with full, fleshed-out characters and this series has it. The heroine has a mysterious past and even more mysterious, supernatural powers. It's just a good listen. Khristine Hvam does an excellent job; her changes in voice are seamless and not at all distracting. I especially like her voice for "Beast".


    What other book might you compare Blood Cross to and why?

    While Blood Cross is in the current vampire and supernatural fiction vein (pun intended), I can't think of another book or series to really compare this to. Yes, there's a strong semi-human female lead. Yes, there's some flirting. But - there's a mystery and real character development.
