9780061906084: What Do Women Want?: Adventures in the Science of Female Desire

In this headline-making book, Daniel Bergner turns everything we thought we knew about women's desire on its head. Drawing on extensive research and interviews with renowned behavioural scientists, sexologists, psychologists and everyday women, Daniel Bergner asks:

- Do women really crave intimacy and emotional connection?

- Are women more disposed to sex with strangers or multiple partners than either science or society have ever let on?

- And is 'the fairer sex' actually more sexually aggressive and anarchic than men?

Product Description:

[ [ What Do Women Want?: Adventures in the Science of Female Desire ] ] By Bergner, Daniel ( Author ) Jun - 2013 [ Hardcover ]

Review:

Explosive (Zoe Williams Guardian)

Fascinating and controversial ( The Sunday Times)

This book should be read by every woman on earth. It should be handed out to pubescent girls... It is a must read for any person with even a remote erotic interest in the female gender... it is a revelation (Tracy Clark-Flory Salon)

A new book that paints an unprecedented picture of female sexuality... [it] may strike fear in the heart of every heterosexual male ( Daily Mail)

What Do Women Want? adds both steam and explosives into the national conversation-or preoccupation-with what it means to be a woman today ( Vogue)

Bergner lays out the history of this brainwashing and then debunks it in his entertaining new book, What do Women Want?. He recaps ingenious studies that have plumbed our desires, including those we deny or hide from ourselves ( Elle)

Daniel Bergner has written a keenly intelligent book about a subject that often exceeds our intelligence: What Do Women Want? ( Gay Talese)

At last, we have a new perspective on the wilds of female desire, in rousing tableaux, as women, men, sexologists, bonobos, erotic gurus, and many others provide frank, vivid answers to the question that has haunted [us] for far too long: What do women want? The answer will fascinate all (Diane Ackerman author of A Natural History of Love)

Accessible and informative prose... this page-turning book will have readers questioning some of their most ingrained beliefs about women, men, society, and sex ( Publishers Weekly)

It's everything you wanted to know about sex but didn't know to ask. Daniel Bergner upends long-standing myths about women and sex - everything from nature of attraction and pursuit to prevalence of taboo fantasies to monogamy itself ( New York Post)

Knits together anecdote, case study and scientific discovery to overturn some tenacious assumptions (Emma Brockes Guardian)

A must-read for anyone who is interested in understanding what makes women tick (Suzi Godson More Sex Daily)

Bergner tumbles many fallacies...Yet it is Bergner's portraits of women agonising about their own thwarted or failing desire that truly illuminate the book. He is a tender and eloquent chronicler (Janice Turner The Times)

The possibilities are endless ( Psychologies (August Issue))

Fascinating . . . Threatens to disrupt all the modern stereotypes of female sexuality ( Slate)

Shatters many of our most cherished myths about desire ( The Atlantic)

An excellent, accessible study (Aidan Moffat Quietus)

What Do Women Want? by Daniel Bergner cites a number of studies that throw water on the notion that women have less active libidos than men or need intimacy to enjoy sex ( Irish Independent)
