Mary Roach Tells Of 10 things You Didn't Know About Orgasm
Susan notes: I've copied and pasted this biographical information and talk unabashedly from the TED website.
"Bonk" author Mary Roach delves into obscure scientific research, some of it centuries old, to make 10 surprising claims about sexual climax, ranging from the bizarre to the hilarious. (This talk is aimed at adults. Viewer discretion advised.)
Freelance writer and humorist turned accidental science journalist Mary Roach likes to ask the questions we all wonder about
but are usually too polite to mention. What happens after we die,
anyway? How fast do cadavers rot? Can a corpse have an orgasm?
In addition to her dry (and sometimes silly) wit, Roach has a penchant for funny voices, faking her way through interviews with expert scientists, and wheedling her way into strange locales, among them a dildo factory and under the business end of an ultrasound wand during coitus.
