Praise
"[N]erdy-dirty, a kind of nonfiction analog to Nicholson Baker's 1992 phone-sex novel, VOX....I've long had a love-hate relationship with Mr. de Botton's prose. I admire his crispness and perceptiveness. I shudder at his preciousness. There seems to be no aspect of human existence, sex included, that he can't tidy up with an apple-cheeked aphorism."
From the Publisher
Editors Note We don?t think too much about sex; we?re merely thinking about it in the wrong way.So asserts Alain de Botton in this rigorous and supremely honest book designed to help us navigate the intimate and exciting---yet often confusing and difficult---experience that is sex. Few of us tend to feel we?re entirely normal when it comes to sex, and what we?re supposed to be feeling rarely matches up with the reality. This book argues that twenty-first-century sex is ultimately fated to be a balancing act between love and desire, and adventure and commitment. Covering topics that include lust, fetishism, adultery, and pornography, Alain de Botton frankly articulates the dilemmas of modern sexuality, offering insights and consolation to help us think more deeply and wisely about the sex we are, or aren?t, having.
Editors Note 1 Arguing that there is a disparity between what is perceived as normal and what is actually experienced in real-life sex, an analysis of the implications of desire, commitment and other sex-related emotions shares insights into maintaining a healthy balance and reexamining personal perceptions. By the best-selling author of How Proust Can Change Your Life. Original.
