How To Think More About Sex

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 21st-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.

We need self-help books like never before, and that is why The School of Life, in conjunction with Pan Macmillan, has launched a series of new guides for everyday living:  six intelligent, rigorous, well-written self-help books, put together by some of the leading minds in the field.  In these, we systematically examine some of the great issues of life – work, sex, money, emotional maturity, digital life and changing the world.
