BonkBonk by Mary Roach

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A humorous survey of the history of scientists exploring sex. From the physical to the psychological and at times the peculiar the author does a great job of covering a topic that has caused many scientists to be shunned for trying to better understand. I often found the injected humor to fall flat and not enhance the text while the frequent footnotes where a great addition. I appreciated that the author covered some of the blatantly bad ideas that certain scientists promoted and how for the greater good science prevailed even if some battles are still being fought.
