There are plenty of fish in the sea, but do you know what they’ve been getting up to? Headbutting, penis fencing, courtship rituals and open sea orgies and beachside BDSM… the world of undersea intercourse is as varied and eye-catching as the many denizens of the oceans, and as it turns out, just as mysterious.

Sex in the Sea discusses the weird, fascinating, and often hilarious facts behind the mating rituals and practices of all sorts of sea life, from crabs and dolphins to barnacles and squids. And the Kama Sutra ain’t got nothing on some of these limber, creative copulators.

That being said, there’s a parallel story being told here. Not only do you learn about all the amazing ways animals have evolved to further their species, but you learn about the negative impact we have had on these vital activities. It’s unsettling to realize just how many species we’ve screwed with (no pun intended) and decimated with human encroachment.

So you can absolutely read this for the weird science — and you should — but you should also read this for a valuable reminder of both the importance of the global ecosystem and our role within it.
