1. SEX/LIFE: 44 Chapters About 4 Men: Now a series on Netflix
Author: by BB Easton
Sphere (May 21, 2020)
May 21, 2020
One woman’s secret journal completely changes her marriage in this hilarious and biting memoir – the inspiration for the hit Netflix Original Series. School psychologists aren’t supposed to write books about sex. Doing so would be considered ‘unethical’ and ‘a fireable offense’. Lucky for you, ethics was never my strong suit.
Sex/Life: 44 Chapters About 4 Men is a laugh-out-loud funny and brutally honest look at female sexuality, as told through the razor-sharp lens of domesticated bad girl BB Easton. No one and nothing is off limits as BB revisits the ex-boyfriends – a sadistic tattoo artist, a punk rock parolee, and a heavy metal bass player – that led her to finally find true love with a straight-laced, drop-dead-gorgeous …Accountant.
After settling down and starting a family with her perfectly vanilla ‘husbot’, Ken, BB finds herself longing for the reckless passion she had in her youth. She begins to write about these escapades in a secret journal, just for fun, but when Ken starts to act out the words on the pages, BB realizes that she might have stumbled upon the holy grail of behaviour modification techniques.

Emily Nagoski PhD
March 02, 2021
A revised and updated edition of Emily Nagoski’s game-changing New York Times best seller Come As You Are, featuring new information and research on mindfulness, desire, and pleasure that will radically transform your sex life. For much of the 20th and 21st centuries, women’s sexuality was an uncharted territory in science, studied far less frequently – and far less seriously – than its male counterpart.
That is, until Emily Nagoski’s Come As You Are, which used groundbreaking science and research to prove that the most important factor in creating and sustaining a sex life filled with confidence and joy is not what the parts are or how they’re organized but how you feel about them.
In the years since the book’s initial publication, countless women have learned through Nagoski’s accessible and informative guide that things like stress, mood, trust, and body image are not peripheral factors in a woman’s sexual well-being; they are central to it – and that even if you don’t always feel like it, you are already sexually whole by just being yourself.

16. The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating
Author: by David M. Buss
The groundbreaking, provocative book that uses evolutionary psychology to explain human mating and the mysteries of love. If we all want love, why is there so much conflict in our most cherished relationships? To answer this question we must look into our evolutionary past, argues prominent psychologist David M.Buss.
Based one of the largest studies of human mating ever undertaken, encompassing more than 10,000 people of all ages from thirty-seven cultures worldwide, The Evolution of Desire is the first work to present a unified theory of human mating behavior. Drawing on a wide range of examples of mating behavior – from lovebugs to elephant seals, from the Yanomam tribe of Venezuela to online dating apps – Buss reveals what women want, what men want, and why their desires radically differ.
Love has a central place in human sexual psychology, but conflict, competition, and manipulation also pervade human mating – something we must confront in order to control our own mating destiny. Updated to reflect the very latest scientific research on human mating, this definitive edition of this classic work of evolutionary psychology explains the powerful forces that shape our most intimate desires.
