The study of sexual physiology- what happens, and why, and how to make it happen better- has been a paying career or a diverting sideline for scientists as far-ranging as Leonardo da Vinci and James Watson. The research has taken place behind the closed doors of laboratories, brothels, MRI centers, pig farms, sex toy R&D labs, and Alfred Kinsey's attic.

Mary Roach, "the funniest science writer in the country", devoted the past two years to stepping behind those doors. Can a person think herself to orgasm? Can a dead man get an erection? Is vaginal orgasm a myth? Why doesn't Viagra help women- or, for that matter, pandas? In Bonk, Roach shows us how and why sexual arousal and orgasm- two of the most complex, delightful, and amazing scientific phenomena on earth- can be so hard to achieve and what science is doing to slowly make the bedroom a more satisfying place.
