Bonk is science author Mary Roach's well-researched and deeply hilarious foray into the history of human sex studies.
by Mary Roach
Do orgasms increase the likelihood of pregnancy? Is it possible to learn to orgasm vaginally if you've never been able to? What does the corporate world have to do with male-centric sex research? Decades of medical and academic studies into human sexual intercourse still haven't given us all the answers. But Mary Roach won't give up that easily.
Roach is an award-winning science writer. She's written six bestselling books, including STIFF: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers. Her work is widely known for making seemingly squeamish topics compelling and humorous.
Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex isn't a guide to better sex. Instead, Roach invites us on a deep dive into the body of historical and contemporary research that informs our ideas about sex, our sexual relationships, and our identities.

"When I began this book, I harbored a naïve fantasy that I would find a team of scientists working to discover the secret to amazing, mind-rippling sex… One day, with only two months to go before I turned in the manuscript, I found that lab."
