Studying sex in the science lab, Mary Roach would tell you, is no cakewalk. Not begun in earnest until the '70s, research on sexual physiology remains taboo today, suffering from the notion that "sex is a secret shame and not an everyday biological event." Fortunately, we have Roach to peek through these blinds of shame for us. Following on the heels of her smash bestsellers STIFF: THE CURIOUS LIVES OF HUMAN CADAVERS and SPOOK: SCIENCE TACKLES THE AFTERLIFE, BONK: THE CURIOUS COUPLING OF SCIENCE AND SEX is, according to Roach, "a tribute to the men and women who dared."
