Dr Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation

Definitive Guide to the Evolutionary Biology of Sex




In witty question-and-answer format, this book explains biology by entertaining reference to the evolution of "all creatures great and small".

If you have ever wondered why women always bite your head off or why one guy gets all the girls, if you have ever pondered why some men bring you balloons while others leave you their genitals, then Dr Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation is the book for you. It explains all this and much more. It discloses the best time to have a sex change, how to have a virgin birth, when to seduce your sisters or eat your lover. Quirky and brilliant, it takes as its starting point all creatures great and small worried about their bizarre sex lives, and the letters they write to the wise Dr Tatiana, the only agony aunt in all creation with a prodigious knowledge of both natural history and evolutionary biology.

Praise for Dr Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation

Darwin titillated 18th-century London with his poem 'The Loves of Plants.' He never knew the half of it. Dr. Tatiana knows how the other half loves, and it's much kinkier than anybody imagined. Never has science seemed more like daytime TV

Matt Ridley, author of The Red Queen

Perhaps the most original advice manual ever written... Judson has pulled off the rarest coup: a science book that's actually fun to read

New Republic

Funny and blissfully original... Dr. Tatiana's science is first-rate

The Economist

Captivating... An evolutionary biologist with interesting and amusing things to tell us

Wall Street Journal

Eye-popping, filthy and funny
