She has a very open, down to earth, playful personality and shows intellection curiosity. It makes her very likable and attractive.
Penny Tennermann
Nice to see that she is as entertaining a speaker as she is a writer.

If you can watch the pig scene without keeling over laughing ...good on you! :)
prabakaran boopal
This is true upsuck theory for fertility is true I had experienced more than once with my partner. .I had felt the cervical lips try to suck just before ejaculation.
Dmitri Kozlowsky
Pig sow vulva stimulator. Quite possibly the worst job in the world. Or the best depending on how e'ffed up you are.
Luke Dillon
TED is so random, one minute ago I was watching a TED talk about photo manipulation and now...now I'm watching this
Dmitri Kozlowsky
Isn't Vulva a car from Sweden?

TheGoldenDunsparce
...I thought the title said "organisms" but I watched this anyway
Alison Lwin
'All animals are equal but some are more equal than others'. George Orwell. What that person is doing to the pig is unnatural and very wrong.
Jedi Lady
The spinal she talked about is The Kundalini Awakening!!
avayeh vasch
I don't know what i learned, but it definitely was fun.
Lamar Deal
I just finished reading  "Stiff", her fascinating, often hilarious book about the dead. She's a treasure, that one...
YiFang Wooh
i like her confidence, makes her speech so fascinating
Debra Bennett
Everyone is so upset about the pig being "sexually assaulted"🙄... I'm upset that the guy didn't have a glove on!!! Lol🤢🤢
Julio Orantes
She is gorgeous.
Justyce L
Watching this video brings to mind the song "Hot for teacher". She is the sexiest and most engaging professor-type speaker I have ever seen. Thoroughly enjoyed this. Would love to see more from her.
VivekP
*She's the same lady from Conjuring 2!*
Mike Blodgett
11:25 that's enough internet for today...

When I saw the pig video, I thought of Bricktop; "They will go through bones...like BUTTER!!"

She is so funny and informative
Lorea Bonaparte

Breaker Morant
Where does one purchase that Sow vibrator? Just askin'....
Andrew Whitworth
"The stuff just kind of slopped out" This might be one of my new favorite youtube videos.
Embracing The Madness
my favorite part  "Now you have an evolutionary excuse" hahaha 
Nawid Adelyar
This is almost like the very first episode of Black Mirror with the Prime Minister and the pig. The worst thing is hearing people in the crowd laugh at such cruelty towards the helpless pig... Very disturbing and disappointing to see, especially from a Ted talk
ingebrecht
Jimi Hendrix once asked, "Are you near death experienced?"
Intercat
Many questions here about why the audience wasn't laughing louder. Maybe same reason I wasn't - I was afraid I'd miss something. Great talk, Mary Roach!
Honey Rosè
I feel like im close when im cleaning my ear lol
Banana Noodle
from finding tutorials on calculus to watching a man fist a pig. ._.
Sandra Winkler
Welcome To PBS..... Where It's February All Year Round!
Joey Harris
"Sadly, this divise was dismantled..." She says of the dildo with a camera attached. "Not because i wanted to use it....*awkward giggle* but because i wanted to see it...." 😂😂😂😂 Shes hysterical!
Klara Filha
Como isso estava nos meus recomendado ?
Animesh Ani
Nisemonogatari Toothbrush scene concept came from this, makes sense now :3
uruiamnot
At 13:21 you can see her hair over the microphone... I had to look twice. Anyway: Extra points if the recommended videos now include porky pig pron.

Leslie Deana
This has definitely been one of the funniest, yet informative Ted talks that I have ever seen! Cudos to a very smart and entertaining instructor.
Christopher Gruenwald
All that work for a 6% increase on piglets? Maybe we should just let the boar do the job instead of jacking off the boar then “stimulating” the sow while inseminating her.
Ste Dunn
I'm not the only person here that developed a crush on this woman? At first I didn't really think much of her, but as she spoke and her jokes, facts, intelligence shown, I thought wow she's really lovely, she's a true geek, that obscure thoughts, always the best type!

The most useful piece of information I got out of this was that the current record for distance ejaculated is 8 feet.
Black Light
Against conventional wisdom, it seems like a nice set of earrings would have improved the sow's experience.
Bam Bam
10 minute area I'm unsure if it was a proven theory about week old sperm being less effective. or is it unproven?

@ 1:50 - Ms Roach states: "I think the most curious one I came across was a case..." No pun intended, Mary? *snicker... Then later, at around 2:10... "She went to see a neurologist..." Hmmmm...would a dentist have been a better choice...? :-D
