Omtale How Sex Works
In this compelling follow-up to the "New York Times" bestseller "Survival of the Sickest", Dr. Sharon Moalem takes readers on a trip from prehistory to the forefront of cutting-edge medical research, and through a bedroom or two, to tell the story of how human sexuality has developed over time. "How Sex Works" challenges common perceptions about our bodies and provides astonishing discoveries from the frontiers of science as it traces the transformation of sex across species and through time to its current role in human societies. In this entertaining, comprehensive exploration of culture, biology, and history, readers will find out the answers to such provocative questions as: can the birth control pill influence the type of men women are attracted to; what do men and honeybees have in common when it comes to sex; why do hourglass-shaped women tend to be especially fertile; when are women most likely to cheat; can twins have different fathers; and, more!
