Wilder Sex (Hardcover) – Personally signed
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 50 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 readers on an enthralling tour of the animal kingdom as she explores the diverse world of sex in the wild. From the evolution of sexual organs to tactics of seduction to the mechanics of sex, Dr. Bondar delves into some seriously intriguing aspects of animal sexuality, including how the unique shape of the genitalia of female elephants makes them immune to rape by their male counterpars, how the sea slug Chromodoris reticulata casts off its penis after each act of copulation—growing a new, functional member within twenty-four hours—and how male birds in big cities have trouble finding mates because their seductive mating calls can’t be heard over traffic and the general cacophony of urban life.
Along the way, Dr. Bondar 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.
