‘Bonk’ Tells Us Some Amazing Things About Sex

Filed under: Culture,Humor,Sex — Tranimal @ 10:32 am


If informational nuggets like this turn you on, then Roach’s hilarious overview of sex research throughout history is for you. Bonk features hundreds of surprising and amazing facts that Roach gathered in her investigation of the science of sex. Here are just a few eye-openers: In the 1970s, Masters and Johnson observed that homosexuals were far better lovers than heterosexuals, perhaps because of gender empathy; women are more likely to have risky affairs when their hormones are peaking; rhesus monkeys climax within five seconds of entering their partner, giving new meaning to the term quickie; more than a few men throughout history have had animal testes grafted onto their genitals in the hopes of increasing their virility.

HA. We, queers, always knew that we were much better lovers than all your breeders. 😛

Kidding aside, it’s an interesting book (if not one of many) of the evolution of sex from a male-centric field (it has some interesting facts about this) to a field that has included the female sex drive and intent for sex in its research.

  1. I wonder by what criteria they concluded that homosexuals were better lovers than heteros? By self-reporting of partners?

    And I feel a deep kinship with the rhesus monkey! haha
