Publisher's Summary

View your sex life in a different light and learn how it can make you happier. Sex is the most intimately human experience there is. It is 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. Covering topics including adultery, lust, pornography and impotence, Alain de Botton argues that 21st century sex will always be a balancing act of trust versus risk, and of primal desire versus studied civility. By examining sex from a subjective - rather than scientific - perspective, he uncovers new ideas on how we can achieve that balance.
Pulling back the sheets on modern sexuality, How to Think About Sex offers important and surprising wisdom that proves that being good in bed is really all in your head.

Alain knows us

Again Alain identifies an all too well-known subject and with his eyes and mind and words makes us see it in a fresh new way. I guess the stress mark in the title should be placed under the words think and more. I mainly loved the book, though its final chapter did not feel so honest, but rather as something he had to say.

Excellent and thought-provoking

Again using narrative to engage the reader, De Botton successfully throws our understandings of love, sex and marriage into oblivion and invites us to question our behaviour. A fabulous read!
