It has been viewed on TED.com over 15,438,578 times. Mary Roach’s lecture on orgasm is both engaging, humorous, and smart . I learned more than I ever wanted to know about orgasm.

Oh, and you’ll see a video involving a female pig you wish you could un-see. I highly suggest you take 16 minutes out of your day to watch the whole talk.

Click here for the full transcript and more information about Mary Roach. I’ve typed out the full list below, but trust me, there is much more interesting information in the video!
