Audience Reviews for The Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human



Leigh Ryan

Super Reviewer

it was like watching national geography or the animal planet, but the lead stars are homo sapiens!
as the title describes, it is about the mating habits of the male and female human specie. the narration was really witty and made me smile a few times. it is worth watching if you have nothing else to do.

Rose Gonzaga

Super Reviewer
