Following her hit book Animal, Sara Pascoe decides to confront her fear of the male libido, and delves into such questions as:
Why don’t people care about the welfare of the people they masturbate to?
Why is there such stigma around those who work in the sex industry?
Some women still want men to buy their dinner?
In this comedic and educational hopscotch over anatomy, the history of sexual representation and the sticky way all human interactions are underwritten by wealth, Pascoe explores whether we'll ever be able to escape the Conundrum of Heterosexuality if women can’t help but admire status, and men obsess about youth and physicality. Drawing on anecdotal experience, unqualified opinion, interviews and research, Sex Power Money is thought-provoking and riotously funny: a fresh take on the oldest discussion.
