    Human sexuality seems normal to us, but is bizarre by the standards of most other animals. This book argues that our strange sex lives were as crucial to our rise to human status as were our large brains. A variety of aspects of human sexuality which we take for granted are re-examined.

Sex is more interesting than fun.

by atien on May 31, 2007

"Why sex is fun" as a title is more marketing ploy than serious reflection of subject matter. What is dealt with are miscellaneous aspects of human sexual evolution such as the function of male nipples and female menopause; subject matters hardly likely to stir much public interest. Not quite on the same level as "Guns, germs and Steel" or "Collapse", I still recommend this book both for its readability and because Jared Diamond remains such an original thinker.
