"Since our forebears started walking upright, sex and hunger have been two vital motivating forces," writes Tom Cutler in this frisky miscellany. "Things haven't changed much, either.... I was in Wardour Street recently and saw a man selling hot dogs outside a porn cinema." Also the author of The Gentleman's Bedside Book, and the self-confessed son of a sex therapist and a sometime Dominican friar, Cutler takes us on a romp through an enduringly popular subject, embracing vivid literature, language, history, and personalities, and drawing on the intimate true-life stories of sex-havers young and old, professional and amateur.
