Has there ever been a gay pope?  What is history’s first love poem? Why do men have nipples? How did “drag” come to mean cross-dressing?  At what age does a man’s penis stop growing?  Do female animals have orgasms?  How long have people been giving the finger? 

From the lascivious to the romantic, from the hardcore to the scientific, this engaging compendium of little-known facts about sex is both informative and endlessly entertaining.  Employing the same careful research that made his “Extraordinary Origins of Everyday Things” a bestseller, Charles Panati explores hundreds of racy and “unmentionable” things. Panati reveals facts that will surprise even the most informed reader.  This titillating collection is as provocative and stimulating as its subject matter.
