Forget the Kama Sutra.

When it comes to inventive sex acts, just look to the sea. There we find the elaborate mating rituals of armored lobsters; giant right whales engaging in a lively threesome whilst holding their breath; full moon sex parties of groupers and daily mating blitzes by blueheaded wrasse.

Sex in the Sea is a journey unlike any other to explore the staggering ways life begets life beneath the waves.


The Book

Sex. Everyone wants to know more about it. Talk about sex, and people listen (even if they are pretending not to). Talk about the wet and wild sex in the sea, and they may keep listening long enough to gently let slip that we are more intimately connected to the intimate affairs of the deep than we may realize.
