10 Things You Didn't Know About Orgasm

The TED talks on the iPad (or web, I prefer to watch them on the iPad) are one of my favorite features to use on the iPad. I can queue up a dozen ten to twenty minute talks on the iPad's storage and watch them at my convenience.  When Pooteewheet flew to Washington, D.C. to see the Rally for Sanity, she watched them on the plane (gotta love the iPad battery life).  Mary Roach's 10 Things You Didn't Know About Orgasm is a hilarious example, with bits about Danes sexually stimulating pigs and nine other anecdotes.  I'm now halfway through her book Bonk as a result of the TED talk, although there are plenty of other talks on the social web, astronomy, and a variety of other topics.  You can even look for those specifically comedic or irreverent if you dig through the topology of themes. If you like short chunks of science, give TED a tour.
