Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex

Mary Roach, Author, Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex, Spook and Stiff

In conversation with Jeff Greenwald, Writer; Artist; Performer

Bestselling author Roach tackles the salacious, creepy and titilating fringes of science and ventures into topics where others fear to tread. In her new book, Bonk, Roach broaches an area of science not normally included in polite conversation. What is an orgasm? How is it possible for paraplegics to experience them? What does a woman want – and how can a man give it to her? With an eye and ear for the absurd, Roach is a riveting guide into the science of the bedroom.
