Quase tudo o que diz respeito ao sexo, é área do meu interesse :mrgreen:

(...)
Bonk is a fascinating journey through repression and excess, and the effects of both societal morality and economics on the scientific study of human sexuality.

As with her previous books Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers and Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife, Roach is exhaustive in her research for Bonk. Covering the gamut from clitoral studies conducted by a French princess named Marie Bonaparte (descended from Napoleon Bonaparte) through the July 2007 EMEA approval of the Intrinsa testosterone patch for women with low libido, Roach leaves no area of sexual science uncovered. She paid $20 to attend an event at the San Francisco Center for Sex and Culture titled “SEX MACHINES: Book Talk, Slide Show & Machine Play Party!” in order to try to find out more about the Williams and Johnson artificial-coition machine, which was essentially a penis camera used to study female sexual arousal and orgasm. :mrgreen: She conned her husband into going to London to participate in a 4-D ultrasound of human genitalia in the act of sexual congress, because participating was the only way she could observe the application of the new scanning technology, which captures real-time images of internal sexual anatomy in motion. :mrgreen:

Interwoven throughout the engrossing tales of pioneering individuals and their discoveries are examinations of the effects of political climate and economic constraints on scientific research. In 1925, Marie Bonaparte met Sigmund Freud, and then proceeded to discredit her own research on the role of the clitoris in female sexual gratification. The Rockefeller Foundation pulled Alfred Kinsey’s funding in 1954 after a congressional investigation. The 1966 Masters and Johnson paper Human Sexual Response was rejected by medical journals for being pornographic. Despite the relative relaxation of societal restrictions regarding the scientific study of human sexuality, most modern sexual research is conducted in corporate R&D labs, and scientific discoveries are made by default. There’s money to be made in the pharmaceutical and sex-toy industries, so studies are funded and discoveries are thereby made regarding sexual arousal and response, not out of scientific interest but to increase the profitability of the end product. Where there is no perceived profit-making application, however, there are no funds for study. Researchers still fight for the freedom to work, only instead of conservatism, their biggest hurdle now is economics.

Reading Bonk is like running a mental marathon through historical anecdotes and scientific fact, but Roach’s breezy pace and approachable style make the journey enjoyable. Not content to settle for a dry, lazy summary of the science of sex, she easily navigates the inherent absurdity of such topics as dildo manufacturing :mrgreen: and recipes for simulated human semen, :blink: and delicately balances wit with an abiding admiration for the endeavors of those who dared to push the boundaries of sexual discovery. Her easygoing humor is often at its best in the footnotes, as in this one from the first page of Chapter 13: “Nominations for a Nobel Prize, I found out when I contacted the Nobel Foundation to try to verify Shafik’s, remain secret for fifty years. You make the claim, and nobody can prove otherwise until after you’re dead. Add one to your résumé today!”

Roach’s engaging writing turns the strange, involved, and often awkward history of sexual study into a wonderfully interesting and respectful book. Dense without being dull and funny without resorting to juvenile humor, Bonk is, quite simply, a pleasure to read.

Eu li o livro anterior da senhora, o tal que fala de cadáveres, e não fiquei fã da abordagem algo leviana (que talvez fosse só a boa disposição a contornar os complexos e tabus que o assunto levanta) , mas penso o estilo vai resultar muito melhor neste novo livro. Fiquei com curiosidade - talvez não para comprar, mas pelo menos para folhear avidamente se o vir aí à venda. :D

Opa, o livro e muito bom. Ela tem uma maneira um pouco leve (mas muito comica) de explicar as situaçoes, mas os factos cientificos estao todos la. Neste livro encaixa muito bem. No Stiff nao sei se me chocaria ou nao, mas esta na calha dos para ler.

O que eu me ri quando ela se voluntariou, mais o marido, para ter sexo dentro de um MRI porque era a unica maneira de ter dados sobre o assunto :mrgreen: Ja li quase tudo o que esta no resumo que o pco postou. Na verdade ja devo de ir a meio do livro!

Adorei Uglies, ja ca tenho o Pretties e o Specials. Foi facilimo de ler, a nivel da linguagem, mas as ideias expostas sao muito interessantes. Percebo perfeitamente porque e uma serie YA com tanto sucesso!

Kraken demorou-me algum tempo a digerir. A ideia e muito boa e a construçao do mundo tambem, mas as vezes e um pouco confuso. E, sinceramente, o audiobook nao me convenceu por ai alem. Achei a voz demasiado monotona e perdi-me com relativa facilidade. Tive de voltar atras e "reler" capitulos por mais do que uma ocasiao. Mas a historia em si e extremamente interessante, e recheada de pequenos "toques" a cultura popular.

Espero ter um pouco mais de tempo livre no proximo mes, para tentar escrever algumas opinioes sobre o que li ;)
