Bookstore behavior

I noticed something today at the bookstore. We have over a hundred sections in our store and with our low walk-in traffic, most stay pretty tidy overall.
But the three sections that are continually rumpled and disorderly are cooking, sex, and religion.
Interesting, no?
The three subjects that represent the most basic human needs; all trashed every week.
What does it mean?
When people browse these sections, are they operating out of a more base part of their brain that rejects order and discipline?
