With Bonk, best-selling author Mary Roach turns her insatiably curious eye toward one of the most elusive subjects in science: sex. She asks both outrageous and practical questions (Would you have a testicle transplant? Is vaginal orgasm a myth?) and addresses topics as varied as the mental/physical arousal divide and the link between pleasure and fertility. The Los Angeles Time says Bonk is “rich in dexterous innuendo, laugh-out-loud humor and illuminating fact. It’s compulsively readable.”
Based on groundbreaking research, Come As You Are offers new insights into female sexuality — and how women can create a fulfilling sex life for themselves.
In her two decades as a couples therapist, Esther Perel has seen time and time again just how rare it is for good sex and long-term relationships to co-exist.

Perel's explanations and suggestions are savvy and straightforward, and will have you looking at the love and sex in your own life in a whole new light.
Labeled "every man's must-read" by Cosmopolitan, She Comes First is all about pleasuring women. More specifically, pleasuring through cunnilingus, an act demystified with an enticing mix of humor and education.
In this provocative book, David Buss turns to Darwin's theories from the mid-19th century to explain why humans today choose the mates they do. It might be a hard pill to swallow — the idea that mating preferences aren't entirely conscious choices, but Buss backs it up by extensive research, including a study of more than 100,000 people from 37 cultures across the globe. He also looks at what mating among animals, and also online dating sites, can tell us about the sometimes fraught, sometimes enchanting, choices we all make.
A down-to-earth guide for anyone looking to learn about sex, romance, and attraction.
More than four decades ago, The Joy of Sex broke onto the publishing scene with a bang — never before had sex and intimacy been laid out in such detail and with such forthrightness. Today, it's still the go-to guide, thanks to its careful updating and still relevant lack of inhibition. Author Alex Comfort argues that good sex should be a lot like this book: imaginative, entertaining, and embarked upon in an atmosphere of open communication.
