From the Publisher: How do the seasons affect your sex life? Is your lover more likely to get you pregnant than your husband? Are good dancers also good in bed? If you've ever wondered how scientists measure love-or whether men really prefer blonde's-this smart, sexy book provides real answers to these and many other questions about our most baffling dating and mating behaviors. Based on the latest research in biology, evolutionary psychology, neuro science, and cognitive science, Do Gentlemen Really Prefer Blondes? dares to explain the science behind sex-and opens a fascinating window on the intriguing phenomenon of love and attraction. Did you know when a couple first fall in love, their brains are indistinguishable from those of the clinically insane. You can tell a lot about a person's sexual chemistry just by looking at his or her hands. Your genes influence whose body odors you prefer. Seasons affect your sex life. Long-term couples really do grow to look alike. Viewed through the lens of science and instinct, your love life might be seen in a completely different way. This book provides both an in-depth exploration into our sexual psyches-and fresh advice for men and women who want to discover the secrets of successful relationships.

Somewhat amusing but forgettable light science. It is amusing and easy reading without much depth.

Geared for "girls". The print is purple. For a better scientific work on sex, try "How Sex Works"

Depressing read for someone past her thirties. I wish I'd had this information in my twenties - I would have ruled the world.
