Dr. Tatiana’s sex advice to all creation
By: Olivia Judson The book Dr. Tatiana’s sex advice to all creation is a exhilarating, funny, and a illuminating experience. The book is composed of all possible creatures by letter about their sex lives that is explained by one person, Dr. Tatiana, a sex columnist in creation with a vigorous amount of knowledge of evolutionary biology. She displays a unique sense of humor when it goes with biology by mixing natural history with the advice of sex history, converging wit and rigor; she is able to reassure her anxious correspondents that make certain acts sound very amusing and unnatural.
