As the Cole Porter love song "Let's Do It" tells us, "Birds do it, bees do it." But the specifics of how they actually, well, do it — and not just birds and bees, but every animal species — can be weirder, more strenuous, and far more complicated than you could ever imagine. Writer Carin Bondar offers a glimpse between the sheets of this particular aspect of animal behavior, in her new book, "Wild Sex," introducing fascinating examples of mating practices. Some may seem a little weird, but ultimately no matter how bizarre the sex, the goal is the same — successful procreation and continued survival of the species.
