Discuss _The Naked Man: A Study of the Male Body_ by Desmond Morris

From Amazon: Following on the international success of The Naked Woman, Desmond Morris investigates another intriguing evolutionary success story. The Naked Man is a study of the masculine body from head to toe, examining biological features of the male anatomy in illuminating detail and describing the many ways in which these features have been modified, suppressed, or exagerated by local customs and changes in social fashions. This is the natural history of man, viewing him as a fascinating specimen of a far-from-rare, but nevertheless endangered species.

The Naked Man is written from a zoologist’s perspective and packed full of scientific fact, engaging anecdote and thoughtprovoking conclusions, including a controversial chapter examining male sexuality. It is an altogether intriguing read.

    So, I searched Jefferson County Public Library's e-book section for The Naked Man, and the first seven results were all Barbie books. I wasn't sure what to do with that discovery, so I thought I'd leave it here.

      That is odd. I don't know what to do with that!
