Publisher's Summary

A brilliantly engaging guide to the reproductive habits of creatures great and small, based on the author's popular web series Wild Sex, which has received over 14 million views.
Birds do it, bees do it - every member of the animal kingdom does it, from fruit flies to blue whales. But if you think humans have a tough time dating, try having to do it while being hunted down by predators against a backdrop of unpredictable and life-threatening conditions. The animal kingdom is a wild place - and it's got mating habits to match. The sex lives of our animal cousins are fiendishly difficult, infinitely varied, often incredibly violent - and absolutely fascinating.
In Wild Sex, Dr. Carin Bondar takes listeners on an enthralling tour of the animal kingdom as she explores the diverse world of sex in the wild. She looks at the evolution of sexual organs (and how they've shaped social hierarchies), tactics of seduction, and the mechanics of sex. She investigates a wide range of topics, from whether animals experience pleasure from sex to what happens when females hold the reproductive power. Along the way she encounters razor-sharp penises, murderous carnal cannibals, and spontaneous chemical warfare in an epic battle between the sexes.
The resulting book is titillating, exhilarating, amusing, petrifying, alluring - and absolutely guaranteed to make you think about sex in a whole new way.

wild sex

very interesting and informative I'm glad I was able to listen to it as opposed to reading it because she adds a lot of the scientific classifications of the animals and my Latin is not very good

Misses the Mark

Text is dull. Terms are ill defined. Writing level is too high for the audience.
