“Rich in dexterous innuendo, laugh-out-loud humor and illuminating fact. It’s compulsively readable.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review
In ?Bonk, ?the best-selling author of Stiff turns her outrageous curiosity and insight on the most alluring scientific subject of all: sex. Can a person think herself to orgasm? Why doesn't Viagra help women-or, for that matter, pandas? Can a dead man get an erection? Is vaginal orgasm a myth? Mary 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 make the bedroom a more satisfying place.

Funny and informative
Mary Roach is a fantastic author. I have read Stiff and Bonk and enjoyed both very much. She has an entertaining way of writing that keeps her witty comments intact but also allows you to learn about the subject she is focusing on. I am a freak for medical books and this one was very interesting to me.
I love this authors humor. If you
Ilex Stiff, you'll love this.
