Description
Why are we one of the few species to have sex in private? Why do human females go through menopause? Why is the human penis so unnecessarily large? Diamond (physiology, UCLA Medical School), author of The Third Chimpanzee looks at the importance of aspects of our sexuality such as recreational sex and the rarity of male lactation to our evolution, explaining how our sexuality has been as crucial as our large brains and upright posture. For general readers. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
