In twelve lively essays, Science and Lust addresses the conundrums of mating in the 21st century.
What can rats in polyester pants teach humans about sex? Are the wives of tall men really happier? Why do even “good guys” act like apes? How are extramarital affairs dangerous to a man’s health? Who says pornography can be politically correct? And is it true that women can’t always tell when they’re sexually aroused?
Author Rebecca Coffey is a science journalist and humorist. The author of four books, she contributes to Scientific American and Discover magazines, as well as to McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, PsychologyToday.com, and radio and television outlets nationwide.
“With wit and verve, Science and Lust makes a significant, valid contribution to sex-positive literature—Marty Babits, author of I’m Not a Mind Reader (HCI) and The Middle Ground (Prometheus.)
“Layered and laced with fun-filled facts, information and an extensive bibliography, Science and Lust is a gift to all who appreciate solid research portrayed in breezy page-turner fashion.”—Rita Watson, Public Health specialist, journalist, and author of six books.
“How does Rebecca Coffey do it? I read Science and Lust in one sitting, as if I were savoring one appetizing morsel after another, enough to leave me magically both sated and wanting more. Dip in and enjoy the feast.—Jill Gentile, psychoanalyst and clinical psychologist, Associate Professor at N.Y.U., and author of Feminine Law (Karnac Books)
