Sex Power Money

Sex Power Money

Part comedy, part anthropological study, here is everything Sara Pascoe has learned from scientists, sex education teachers, pornographers and 90s films about love, cruelty, domination, masculinity, status, and economic pressures. Is internet porn ruining marriage? 'Mind Rape' isn't a thing, is it?
Like her much-loved first book, Animal, Pascoe overthinks and overshares in the name of our entertainment and education. Sex Power Money is a whipsmart, winningly funny look into who - and what - we are, and what makes us tick.

    Pascoe explores attitudes towards human sexuality, the evolution of homo sapiens and various aspects of gender politics. This was fascinating and amusing in equal parts. I didn't totally agree with al...
