Seems like everyone liked this book - but I didn't. Maybe it is a personal preference. I felt like I was reading a scientific research paper prepared by a lit and poetry major. If you're into that - this book is for you. It does contain interesting information and history on the study of sex, but it's sandwiched in the most pukey-romatic-slow-reading parts of the Norton Anthology of Poetry and contains paragraphs upon paragraphs of the writer's personal musings. This book is also filled with lots of interesting results from scientific sex studies, unsubstantiated results from scientific sex studies. What's the point!?
