Ok, I have nothing against softcore porn. I hate unsubstantiated psuedoscience. This book crams the two together. I want my science porn free. I want my science to cite sources. I want my science to be free of cultural agenda and bias. Alas, Baker failed me thrice. Much of what he describes is substantiated scientific theory that has been presented properly in other works. Some is rampant speculation. The porn that begins each chapter adds NOTHING to the topic at hand; not even detailed case studies, merely fictional filler designed to spice up his muddled work. Baker fails on every level. Do yourself a favor, pick up a 'Hustler' and a couple of real books on the subject of evolutionary biology. The topic of sexual function and genetics has been well covered by Robert Wright ('A Moral Animal') and Richard Dawkins ('The Selfish Gene'.)
