38-year-old Robert Bennett has recently undergone a revelation: he doesn't actually like sex. He has never derived great pleasure from sex, and nor has any woman he's slept with. He still has a sex drive, mind, and he is still attracted to his wife, but he believes that the things we get from sex can be got from other activities that are more rewarding, and less messy. Why go through all the awkwardness of sex to have an orgasm when you can get there by enjoying a good old sneeze instead? Why spend hours fumbling around with your partner's bits when you can strengthen your marriage by taking up hobbies together such as taxidermy and matchstick cathedral modelling?

This is the gospel Robert wishes to spread, and the result is this hilarious guide to life without sex. Wonderfully illustrated with spoof drawings based on Alex Comfort's The Joy of Sex, it is irreverent, outrageous and very funny.
