Description
Critically acclaimed journalist Bergner disseminates the latest scientific research and paints an unprecedented portrait of female lust: the triggers, the fantasies, the mind-body connection, the reasons behind the loss of libido, and, most revelatory, that this loss is not inevitable.

Praise For What Do Women Want?

“Daniel Bergner has written a keenly intelligent book about a subject that often exceeds our intelligence: What Do Women Want?”
-Gay Talese

“At last, we have a new perspective on the wilds of female desire, in rousing tableaux, as women, men, sexologists, bonobos, erotic gurus, and many others provide frank, vivid answers to the question that has haunted [us] for far too long: What do women want? The answer will fascinate all.”
-Diane Ackerman, author of A Natural History of Love
