Thought about sex today? Of course you have! It’s about the most natural thing any animal can do. But have you ever wondered how human sex compares to that of other beasts?

It’s far from merely inserting part A into slot B. The sex lives of our animal cousins are fiendishly difficult, infinitely varied and often violent. They involve razor-sharp penises, murderous cannibals and chemical warfare in an epic battle between the sexes.

Join renowned biologist Dr Carin Bondar on a fascinating journey from puberty to old age across the entire animal kingdom – it will forever change your idle daydreams about the nature of sex.

Reviews

A densely packed but hugely entertaining exploration of nookie in the natural world ... it is her robust relish for her subject and her informed unravelling of the science of sex that make the book so fascinating
Mark Cocker, MAIL ON SUNDAY
Racy in tone, and full of the sort of lurid detail with which you can reduce a dinner party to silence, this is a lively read with a heavyweight scientific bibliography
