Why Is Sex Fun?: The Evolution of Human Sexuality (Science Masters) - Jared Diamond

This book speculates on the evolutionary forces that shaped the unique aspects of human sexuality: female menopause, males' role in society, having sex in private, and--most unusual of all--having sex for fun instead of for procreation. Through comparative evolution, biologist and science author Diamond (Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fate of Human Societies), poses credible and thought-provoking yet entertaining factors: the lengthy period of dependency of human infants, sex for pleasure as the tie that helps bind a mother and a father together, and menopause as an evolutionary advantage that, by ending the childbearing years, allows females to pass wisdom and knowledge on to society and succeeding generations.

I've always found it ironic that we find sex enjoyable yet there is such a stigma attached to the pursuit of said pleasure. It seems
backward that we discourage teen sex eventhough children can enter puberty as early as age 9. We know sex is healthy. Why do some still consider it dirty embarrassed even at a mention of the subject? I am glad you wrote this book!
