What Do Women Want?

Adventures in the Science of Female Desire
Bergner, Daniel (Book - 2013 )
Average Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.
What Do Women Want?


Item Details

Critically acclaimed journalist Daniel Bergne disseminates the latest scientific research and paints an unprecedented portrait of female lust: the triggers, the fantasies, the mind-body connection (and disconnection), the reasons behind the loss of libido, and, most revelatory, that this loss is not inevitable. Bergner asks: Are women actually the less monogamous gender? Do women really crave intimacy and emotional connection? Are women more disposed to sex with strangers and multiple pairings than either science or society have ever let on? And is "the fairer sex" actually more sexually aggressive and anarchic than men? While debunking the myths popularized by evolutionary psychology, Bergner also looks at the future of female sexuality. Pharmaceutical companies are pouring billions of dollars to develop a "Viagra" for women. But will it ever be released? Or are we not yet ready for a world in which women can become aroused at the simple popping of a pill?

Found the author to spend a great deal of time discussing the physical appearance of each doctor or researcher (weird?) and only walked away with maybe five interesting points. No clear answers, and could have easily summarized any interesting points in under two chapters.

Thought-provoking without any clear answers.

I'm only a few chapters in so far, but even at this early stage I want to tell everybody in the world to read this book. Both mind-blowing and nuanced; thoroughly researched.
