Thorough explanation of "why?"

This book is a must read for everyone curious to understand "why" men and women act the way they do in regards to sex and romance. This book is a fascinating exploration in to many different subjects that are foreign to most. Even chapters that don't relate to ones own personal experiences are captivating. You get to understand the thought process behind being male, female, straight, gay, and why you/they look at the sexual content you/they do. Exceptional book. Listened to twice.

A Great Idea, Humanely Executed

Using Internet search histories and industry practices to explore and explain human sexuality is a great idea, and this book is a fun tour through the diverse and curious forest of human sexuality and thought. I learned a lot about general tastes and things in the world that have often surprised me, helping me to notice things in the world I had not noticed before, such as the way women will slip into and out of desire, how many men are into feet and what the deal is with straight porn showing so many "chicks with dicks" and hentai.

A slightly simplified but ultimately kind look at the diversity of human desire, with some speculation on how and why it is that way. A good read to understand more of oneself and to look with mercy on the weird tastes of our fellow, two and three-legged pervert: A fun romp.

My-Oh-My!

Any additional comments?

I don't know if all the theories presented in this book are true but the ride getting to them was sure interesting! Packed full of information about things that have perplexed me for years. And I liked that the authors paid as much attention to information concerning "normal" pornography as well as "abnormal" tastes. Well rounded. If the explosion of internet porn has ever perplexed you or you have asked yourself, "Why would anyone want to look at that?" this is the book for you.

Pseudoscience at its worst

Men are simpleminded creatures who just want to "aim and fire" at a anything that moves, and women are always analyzing things with their inner detective, craving romance and real commitment. I have now spared you a credit much better spend somewhere else. From analyzing a whole lot of porn, Internet searches, and picking and choosing research, these blokes decided that they are actually capable of making up nonsense theories based on crack pot ideas of how it might have been to be a caveman. Go back and study some actual biological anthropology, then talk to some actual scientists about how science works, then rewrite it please. The idea is really good. But it's a little like putting on green glasses, and then proclaiming the world green.

Wow...what I just learned about myself

I've always been a great wingman, a great opener for single friends, and even help friends that didn't know they were gay...find themselves. I just didn't know what I was doing... I was a Natural. I've been drawn to this study most recently because of tests I'd been performing for the last few years in chat rooms. If used properly and without abuse... This book holds the statistical advantage for understanding the bindings people have with their so called "free will"... We know less about who and what we are than we realize.

Fascinating!

I wasn't exactly sure what to expect but this book is fascinating, funny and insightful. If you're even mildly interested is sexual desire, the psychology of sex, sexual preference this book will be time well spent.

Interesting and informative

You only THINK you know about sexual interest, arousal, and activity. Saw Dr. Ogas speak a few years ago speak on this study and was mesmerized. Had to read the book...but listening on Audible was so much more convenient. ❤️

Interesting Listen

Well worth the credit. I've spend the past two days engrossed by this interesting look at human sexuality. I'm going to listen again
