From Giant Panda porn-watching evenings to the often inaccurate firing of love darts from the common garden snail. From the frenzied mating bundles formed by snakes lucky enough to have two penises, to the unlucky female bean weevil who has to put up with the spiked and barbed protuberance of her mate, this beautifully illustrated and hilariously informative manual will broaden your mind and make you look upon Mother Nature's achievements with new-found respect. Filled with little-known scientific facts (and fantastic top trumps tables listing copulation frequency and duration, relative penis to body size, interesting anatomical quirks, and remarkable 'did you know' anecdotes), written with a delightfully humorous tone and illustrated with 50 colour photographs this is the perfect stocking filler for anyone and everyone who's ever wondered what went on inside the ark.

About the Author:

Gideon Defoe is rumoured to be directly related to Daniel Defoe. He was born in 1976 and wrote his first book about pirates to impress a girl. He lives in London.

Review:

'Some eye-popping photos combine with Defoe's amusing text to higlight some of Mother Nature's crueller jokes. With facts that will keep you in dinner party conversation for many months, it's ...a laugh-out-loud read, which proves your sex life could always be worse!' FQ MAGAZINE (December 2005) 'Gideon Defoe's satirical picture book mixes laughs with plenty of did-you-know facts about lesbian lizards and detachable penises.' WHAT'S ON IN LONDON (8.12.05) 'It's a small book, and the style is quite jokey, but every one of the anecdotes contained therein is capable of bringing dinner party conversation to a complete standstill.' -- Luis Villazon BBC FOCUS MAGAZINE (January 2006)
