I was afraid this would be a book annulling the magic of sex by trying to intellectualize it, probably by a professor with much experience thinking about it likely because he did not have much experience doing it. Not so. I was overwhelming wrong. This is mature, thoughtful, erudite, and poignantly empathic book on how to the more about sex. It should be required reading in primary schools. This is the best book on how to think about sex and its place in our lives that I have found, and I have found a few good ones. I will say that I was surely able to appreciate it more at age 30 than I would have at age 20, but I still think it is the best.

Sure, we all know everything there is to know about sex, relationships, marriage, attraction, etc. This well written little book opens one's mind to why we feel and think the way we do about intimacy and relationships. Educational and enjoyable.

Contains a really great three page insight into "resentment", that was worth the price of the book several times over.

Really enjoyed this book full of grounded and funny insights. I love reading other's thoughts on human nature, especially those who manage to be real, humorous, compassionate and not preachy and this book was all of these. Writers who dare to put their ideas out there, crafted with clarity and love, seem to help me get my own chaos more in order. Not all of the book applied to me but that was okay. I thought the author hit the high points for a wide range of sexuality and that's part of what we might all need to keep in mind - that there is just such a range and we'll all be better for it if we interact with compassion along with a loving acceptance and knowledge of our own truths.

I'm reading a second School of Life book now (How to Stay Sane) and enjoying that as well.

I love the writing style of this book, and there are lots of cool facts about the way our society has viewed sex and love historically. It does not, however, instruct anyone on "how to think more about sex."

This book will challenge your perceptions and long-held beliefs on sex, marriage, fidelity and pornograhpy. It's a quick, easy read, amusing and direct. Read it if you are struggling to figure out how sex fits into your long-term, monogamous relationship or just for fun. So worth it.

Wonderful learning experience for those just staring out in sex. Clears up shame and confusion as not something to be ashamed of, but something to be enjoyed

Love this! Not a book for arousal but a thoughtful interpretation of what sex actually is. This book explains what sex means to humanity. Thought provoking :)

Great book. Really thought provoking. Only criticism is that it is very much from the male point of view. I'd like to see a female version of the book too.
