I've long threatened to do a book club meetup about porn. The time is nigh!
Going easy on you though, Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex by Mary Roach is a comical, exhaustive look into the world of sex and sex research. (And the pictures in the book are sarcastic and representational, not titillating. For the record.)
We read Spook last year, also by Mary Roach, and so this marks the first time we've done the same author. But it's a good opportunity to make good on my threats as well as to lighten things up a bit, as our last many books have dealt with difficult issues and this one is extremely humorous.
For what is not funny about the human body and what we choose to do with it? And to it?
So come and help drop innuendos and discuss the funny bits and male/female perspectives with frank and open discussion. If such topics offend you, don't come. Your mom might not approve. For every other adult in this group, let's have an interesting discussion on a topic that most people know about and don't get to talk about much, but let's keep visual aids to ourselves. Okay?
