When it comes to sex, common wisdom holds that men roam while women crave closeness and commitment. But in this provocative, headline-making book, Daniel Bergner turns everything we thought we knew about women's arousal and desire inside out. Drawing on extensive research and interviews with renowned behavioral scientists, sexologists, psychologists, and everyday women, he forces us to reconsider long-held notions about female sexuality.
This bold and captivating journey into the world of female desire explores answers to such thought-provoking questions as: Are women perhaps the less monogamous sex? What effect do intimacy and emotional connection really have on lust? What is the role of narcissism - the desire to be desired - in female sexuality? Are political gains for women ("No means no") detrimental in the bedroom? And is the hunt for a "female Viagra" anything but a search for the cure for monogamy?
Bergner goes behind the scenes of some of the most groundbreaking experiments on sexuality today and confronts us with controversial, sometimes uncomfortable findings. Incendiary, profoundly insightful, and brilliantly illuminating, What Do Women Want? will change the conversation about women and sex, and is sure to spark dynamic discussion for years to come.

The Last Hour is the only interesting and informative part.

You can skip directly to the last hour - the part before is just lame storytelling to fill up space.

a bit dry but deep ;)

well, in a few words I can say this book is basically filled with great insights, very scientifically, about 'what women want' (and generally even women themselves don't seem to know). the book talks about lots of real life stories as examples and that's a great way to learn I suppose, but the downside of this audiobook (and I kind of hate to say that) is, that it is written and also performed in such a dry way, it has hardly any taste at all. I don't really know why, it's just that it's not my cup of tea even though the topic itself is. So this book maybe just lacks some salt, other than that it is written and performed flawless and shines some good lights.
