    I had just spent the past two hours watching corals spawn But that event looked so unlike sex that I never expected the aftermath to smell like it. Sex in the Sea Our Intimate Connection with Kinky Crustaceans, Sex Changing Fish, Romantic Lobsters and Other Salty Erotica of the Deep is a very entertaining and interesting book The title describes the book perfectly as we get a look at the matting rituals for marine life.We get to learn some interesting facts, such as adult male sperm whales make the loudest biologically sound on earth they seem to keep people in Seattle up lobsters use urine to express their desire to mate seahorses act like chaste Victorian singles during their courtship the male whitespotted putterfish makes the most spectacular nest And there are many examples of curiosities regarding sex in the ocean.What I like most about Marah J Hardt s book is how she links...

    What an entertaining, educational, and forward thinking work Marah J Hardt reveals the curious mysteries of marine sex life in fascinating ways Each chapter begins with a short fictional tale of the enigmatic sex life of a particular marine animal written like a romance novel These are amusing and are a fantastic way to start each section.I was captivated to the pages as she unfolded the intriguing details that marine life goes through seeking a mate, courtship, intercourse, and post sex Marah is an artful and descriptive writer as well as having an intimate knowledge of her subject matter Here s one example I was provided an uncorrected advanced copy and quotes may not match the final edition of the book If you want to grow your orgy numbers, nothing beats a full blown belly flop to attract the neighbors they momentarily defy gravity and their watery roots to burst forth from the sea in spectacular displays Nearly all of the multiple species of mobulas seem to have this penchant for aerial acrobatics, leaping up to six feet out of the water before splashing down with a crack at the surfaceLooking down through the clear waters at a seasonal aggregation of hundr...

    Humorous, but not silly.Sassy introduction that lays out the issue of terrestrials dependence on the sea for not only protein, but water filtering and erosion blocking Loss in fertility of the seas impacts humans The tongue in cheek tone and the analogies are meant to be accessible to laypersons through humor and sex, and the message comes through without seeming didactic Spawning coral during a full moon Only happens once a year since it takes enormous reserves of energy to produce the eggs and sperm.Strong emphasis on the dangers of overfishing during mating aggregations and near seamounts which act as beacons Additionally, though parthenogenesis might seem like reproduction of the gods in some species facing 95% population reduction in the last 50 years, it is critical even if limiting the gene pool.The mystery surrounding blue whales song pitch drop and the possible correlation to the whaling ban and recovering populations is intriguing Less distance required, now advertising size Animals are adapting as quickly as they can to changing conditions, but we still need to be mindful, diligent and make conscious decisions on the costs and benefits of our actions.More carbon dioxide fossil fuel burning leads to a change in the ocean pH to acidic Animals that ...

    Despite the title this is really a book about conserving the life in our oceans The author presents example after example of how various forms of sea life reproduces yet there is an underlying message of how humans get in the way of this reproduction and have caused the crash of many species Not all is doom and gloom, the author gives examples of where with simple changes we have brought species back and can catch them in a responsible mann...

    Nothing encourages unleashing a torrent of semen like having to fire at the same time as another male 425 million years old That s the age of the oldest known fossil penis a Johnson that left quite an impression Lets talk about sex baby, let s talk about wild gametes Let s talk about all the good things and the bad things in the sea This book was entertaining, funny, educational, and compassionate It was also frenetic, lol Imagine your favorite professor on expresso gleefully shifting subtopics as new and interesting things facts fish occur to her The book covered sequential hermaphroditism in parrot fish, eels, and clownfish giving a whole new spin to Finding Nemo Orgies of all flavors were discussed from the grunion run to the full moon coral spawning Sea creatures also use asexual reproduction and delayed reproduction A female brownbanded bamboo shark in an aquarium gave birth to a healthy young pup after nearly four years of celibacy No one knew they could hold sperm that long.My favorites were the whale threesome and the lobsters, oh my the lobsters I had no idea sex coul...

    The topic was fascinating, the writing was lackluster I probably would have enjoyed this book if the writing style was akin to Mary Roach, who treats even the most salacious topics with wit and her brand of dry humor that I find so appealing.

    Sex in the Sea Our Intimate Connection with Sex Changing Fish, Romantic Lobsters, Kinky Squid, and Other Salty Erotica of the Deep by Marah J Hardt 278 pages Before reading this book, if you had asked me something that bored me, it would be fish But I saw a fellow book nerd read this book and I was intrigued I won t lie that word sex in the title helped And oh am I glad I read this one Yes, it deals with intercourse between sea animals but it deals with so much as well The author talks about the ecosystem and how it is effected by the slightest changes mostly thanks to humans And if sea life isn t having sex, reproduction doesn t happen, certainly not a good thing to keep biodiversity going So along with fascinating tales on how the underwater world gets it on, she explains ways we can attempt to fix the issues humans have often caused.I really enjoyed this book It left me in...

    I assigned this book to my upper level class in marine biology and I couldn t be happier about it This book is incredibly engaging, and it was fun to hear the students remark about how much enthusiasm they had for reading it Dr Hardt really has a way with words, and some of her opening lines were so engaging and hilarious that I couldn t help but find myself searing for extra time throughout the day to read the book.The book is factual, engaging and fun to read It has a thoroughly listed bibliography at the end for people who want to read further, although I wish that these citations had been footnoted within the main text I would have no reservation using this book again for class, nor about recommending it to my friends who have an interest in marine biology, or just an interest in the...

    While this was full of interesting information, very little of it was actually practical I came away knowing much about what has been done to protect ocean wildlife, but very little on what I could do to help I do appreciate that I now know what to look for when purchasing fish But that oversight in itself isn t why I rated this two stars what dragged it down for me was the unending stream of juvenile jokes and anthropomorphization quite simply, a fish is not a human, and drawing a...
