What Do Women Want?

What Do Women Want? (Ecco) is a provocative read that debunks several myths about female sexuality. Journalist Daniel Bergner consulted behavioural scientists, psychologists and sexologists for the latest research on female desire and arousal. The findings challenge assumptions-the idea that the female libido is best suited to monogamy is "scarcely more than a fairy tale," he writes, for example-making this an engaging page-turner.
