There are a lot of books written about sex, but among them there are few worthwhile ones - those that can really enrich you with theoretical and practical knowledge. It's one thing to be an idiot, read Fifty Shades of Gray and think you know everything about sex; another thing is to be human and read four important and smart books about the same sex and really become in this area of knowledge, if not an expert, then at least a connoisseur and connoisseur.
1. "Sex, Murder and the Meaning of Life" by Douglas Kenrick
Heard about evolutionary psychology? If not, then you need this book. If yes, then you still need this book, because it helps to understand the essence of sex through the prism of this psychological science. The author, the famous American psychologist Douglas Kenrick, comes to the conclusion that human civilization is just a facade behind which the eternal savagery of people is hidden, whispering the wildest sexual fantasies into our ears. Yes, this book is not just about sex. In it, the author touches on not only lustful topics, but also various social conflicts, international problems, economic crises. It is especially pleasing that the text is flavored with colorful examples from life, which certainly cannot be called standard.
2. "Sex at the Dawn of Civilization" by Christopher Ryan and Casilda Geta
Don't let the ratings in this book fool you. Very few people in Russia know about it, and the book itself is more than worthwhile. This reading is a bible for the sex-obsessed. Why? Because the authors of the book investigate monogamy in it, calling it unnatural for a person. The authors operate with scientific facts, history, sociological explanations to prove that polygamy is what you need. Also, the book provides answers to important questions about sex: for example, why women need more time to orgasm than men; the importance of casual sex to the survival of our ancestors; what is the connection between bonobos and a woman's desire to sleep with another. In general, such literature cannot be skipped.
3. "As a Woman Wants" by Emily Nagoski
It is definitely a bestseller written by a woman for men who have forgotten the true science of love and sex, and for women who have lost their sexuality. For us people tainted by pornography, Nagoski's book can be an excellent guide to action, which debunks popular myths, teaches us to understand women bodily, and gives good advice on how to make our girlfriend feel good. The book is written by an eminent sexologist based on scientific research in sex and neuroscience. Serious shit that can change your sex life for the better.
4. "Actively Searching", Aziz Ansari
Aziz Ansari is not a preacher from Mecca. This is an outstanding American comedian of Indian descent, who may be known to you from the series "Parks and Recreation", "Jack of all trades", a number of mind-blowing comedies and cool specials. In general, this is a tough guy who knows how to tell stories. It turns out that he also knows how to write books. The proof of this is the book "Actively Searching", which can be described as a worldly treatise XXI on the topic of dating online in order to get hold of a girlfriend for one night or forever. Of course, the book is spiced with selected humor and sociological background, for which co-author Eric Klinenberg is responsible.
