The Nature of Sex
The Ins and Outs of Mating in the Animal Kingdom
By Dr Carin Bondar
A brilliantly engaging guide to the reproductive habits of creatures great and small.
Thought about sex today? Of course you have! It's about the most natural thing any animal can do. But have you ever wondered how human sex compares to that of other beasts?
It's far from merely inserting part A into slot B. The sex lives of our animal cousins are fiendishly difficult, infinitely varied and often violent. They involve razor-sharp penises, murderous cannibals and chemical warfare in an epic battle between the sexes.
Join renowned biologist Dr Carin Bondar on a fascinating journey from puberty to old age across the entire animal kingdom - it will forever change your idle daydreams about the nature of sex.
Dr Carin Bondar is a biologist with a PhD in population ecology from the University of British Columbia.
She is an online and TV host for Discovery, the Science Channel, Animal Planet and National Geographic. The Nature of Sex is based on her independent web series, which has amassed over 30 million views on YouTube.
Dr Bondar currently holds and adjunct faculty position in the department of biology at the University of the Fraser Valley and can been seen on Stephen Hawking's Brave New World, Outrageous Acts of Science, World's Weirdest and Badass Animals.
