Starred Review. Veteran magazine writer and editor Dutton (Redbook's 500 Sex Tips) gives the home practitioner plenty to think about in this up-to-the-minute survey of the science of sex. Relying heavily on academic studies, Dutton fills readers in on why red revs a man's engine, how the scent of cucumbers and Good N Plenty candy will draw in women, and what it is the bad boys do so well. She also tackles the age-old questions of closing-time attractiveness and the (in-) efficacy of pickup lines. Readers who've already attracted a mate will also find plenty of germane explanations, as well as more than a few techniques to heat up the bedroom, including specific instructions for improving orgasms and sharing fantasies. Whether readers have questions about Spanish fly, how to find out if your spouse is cheating, or the proper term for a getting-kicked-in-the-groin fetish ("tamakeri"), Dutton covers it all with a nonjudgmental tone and snappy, magazine-style prose. Though dense, the book is also a funny and addictive read, worthwhile for bedroom tips as well as sophisticated parlor trivia.
