I’ve loved Mary Roach’s work ever since she released Stiff. Just really funny and informative stuff….about dead bodies.
She’s exactly the sort of person I want to sit next to at dinner because I have a strong feeling she’ll go to those very inappropriate places of a conversation and be like “you know…it spurted this far.” And she wouldn’t say it to be dirty, it would be a sincere “god isn’t that fascinating” sentiment….which I love.
Her TED presentation is fantastic.
10 Things You Didn’t Know About Orgasm. Skip to 11:00 for some fascinating pig-wanking. Again…it’s a sincere description. Not dirty. Just incredibly fascinating. Well fascinating to me….because I like to go to those inappropriate places in a conversation. It’s home for me.
