And who said reading wasn't sexy?
If the last time you thought of science and sex in the same sentence was in 8th grade with your foxy biology teacher than your in for a pleasant (or pleasurable) surprise. Jena Pincott’s “Do Gentlemen really prefer Blondes: Bodies, Behaviors, and Brains- The Science Behind Sex Love and Attraction” uses biology, evolutionary psychology and neuroscience to answer all of our carnal questions in an easy to read format. Some of my personal favorite questions:
- Why when a couple first falls in love their brains are indistinguishable form those of the clinically insane?
- Are good dancers good in bed?
- How do the seasons affect our sex life?
In short Pincott uses science to shed light on what makes us tick sexually. One thing is for sure, I’ll never look out at a biology textbook the same way again.
