This book is quite an interesting read. [Wink] It describes a lot of people's personal experiences about sex, and some of them (to put it mildly) a little raunchy or controversial. Has anyone else read it?

I was browsing through it in the bookshop, quite a big seller here. I was glad it at least wasn't too hetero-centric.

Yes, that was definitely a good part about it. A book that talks about the breadth of human sexual experience really needs to not be too hetero-centric. This particular book also mentions the difficulty of developing a healthy sexuality in the societies we live in today, for those who have a non-conventional orientation or who are born transgender.

I also like the way the book uses "normative" rather than "normal".
