Product Description


She accomplishes this heroic task with humour, skill and passion in a book that is as entertaining as it is erudite (Catherine Hakin THE OBSERVER 2012-04-15)

An important book... exactly the kind of level-headed analysis that could help to dispel some of the hysteria surrounding the sex industry (Suzi Godson THE TIMES 2012-04-16)

Book Description

Why everything the media tells us about sex is wrong...

From the Back Cover

Is there any truth to the epidemic of sex addiction?

Are our children really getting sexualised younger?

Are men the only ones who like porn?

The Sex Myth looks at all these questions and more - and proves that perhaps we've all been taking the answers for granted.

Brooke Magnanti is no stranger to controversy. As Belle de Jour she enthralled and outraged the nation in equal measure. Now her real identity is out in the open, Brooke's background as a scientist and a researcher can come to bear in her fascinating investigation into the truth behind the headlines, scandals and moral outrage that fill the media (and our minds) when it comes to sex.

It's time to strip away the hype and look at the science behind sex and the panic behind public policy. Follow the money trail rather than the scare stories and ask yourself, what's the truth about sex?Sit back, open your mind and prepare to be shocked...
