Drag queens, boy toys, sissies, and femmes. He-men and she-men. Gay, straight or maybe somewhere in between that defies standard or traditional definitions. These topics are the lifeblood of daytime talk shows and soap operas alike. Because sex sells. But there's also science in sex. Based on his original research, Bailey's book is grounded firmly in the cientific method. But as he demonstrates, science doesn't always deliver predictable or even comfortable answers. Are gay men genuinely more feminine than other men? And do they really prefer to be florists and hairdressers rather than lumberjacks? Are all male transsexuals women trapped in men's bodies - or are some of them men who are just plain turned on by the idea of becoming a woman? And how much of a role do biology and genetics play in sexual orientation?
