Everything you ever wanted to know about our lifelong sexual urges ... by bestselling author Pamela Stephenson-Connolly
When did your sexual experiences start? Are you having more virtual sex than real sex? Can you have too much or not enough sex? What exactly is ‘normal’?
Bestselling author and leading sex therapist, Pamela Stephenson-Connolly takes us on an eye-opening journey to explode the myths and answer the embarrassing questions we’ve always wanted to ask about sex and our insatiable appetite for it.
Drawing on the latest research and on hundreds of intimate interviews with ordinary people of all ages, appetites and backgrounds, Stephenson-Connolly reveals how the ever-present sexual force in each of us evolves throughout our lives, from our first months in the womb up right until our nineties. She also shows that there is no such thing as ‘normal’ and that anything goes when it comes to sex as long as it is safe, sane and consensual. The result is an intimate portrait of our sexual selves that dispels the myths, guilt and mystery surrounding sex and our sexual urges.
Hugely informative, always entertaining and at times shocking, this is arguably one of the most enlightening books on sex ever published.

I was surprised it was a very serious tone dealing with sex through our life time. Well written with lots of references and details from wide sources of research. Excellent content I highly recommend it.
Comments about Sex Life:
greetings...wish this lady and her book was part of my schooling in life.HEY!proves not to late to learn,thank you Doctor...ronald.c.
She is famous for her dancing, her "sexual healing" column in the newspaper, for being the wife and biographer of Billy Connolly, but underneath all of that she is really an experienced psychotherapist and psychologist with an abiding interest in sex, sexuality and how it impacts on who we really are.
With its use of the latest research and hundreds of interviews with people from all walks of life and all interests and ages, this book promises to be informative, entertaining and probably a bit shocking. It is certainly going to draw back the curtains on some rather hidden topics.
