Sex Story unravels the mysteries of sex and love, sharing the secrets you'll never find in any other book.
When did man become monogamous? How did eroticism start and how did sex become a taboo? What about love, man’s greatest joy and torment? And how does sexuality influence the relationship between men and women and the female condition across various cultures? If you want to know the answers to these questions, and many more then this is the book for you! Learn about the evolution of sexuality in the west, starting with the earliest civilisations to the present. Sex Story shatters all sex-related taboos, mixing history and humour and offering a new, unapologetic point of view on sex. The book covers a vast range of topics: from the forbidden fruit, to the scandalous sexual exploits of ancient gods, from sexual awakening, to conjugal duties… it also delves into the little-known habits of famous historical figures: Cleopatra’s extravagances, Michelangelo’s sexual orientation and Louis XV’s notorious womanising, just to name a few.
