UnNatural History can be intriguing, but even human life in California is nowhere near as diverse, bizarre, kinky, and amusing as genuine Natural History. My evidence is Dr. Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation, a hilarious and strange book about the evolutionary biology of sex. Dr. Tatiana is Olivia Judson, a PhD in biological sciences from Oxford, no less. Her book is filled with various creatures writing in for advice on their sexual problems. It's the kind of book where you laugh, you groan, you read it aloud to anyone who will listen.

And if you thought people had interesting sex lives — just wait until you hear about slime molds.
