Summary
Sex is the most intimately human experience there is. It can also be the most confusing. Our desire to be together conflicts with our desire to avoid vulnerability and appear 'normal', leaving us detached, desensitised or embarrassed
Summary
A guide to sexual behavior for the twenty-first century argues that modern sexuality must strike a balance between love and desire, and between adventure and commitment, and discusses such topics as rejection, pornography, and adultery
