‘It’s the kind of book that makes you wonder, ‘why wasn’t this written before?’ It could change lives’ EVENING STANDARD

‘Turns everything you’ve been taught about sex on its head’ RUBY RARE

What lies are we told when it comes to sex?

What impossible expectations pollute our health, our happiness and our access to fundamental human rights?

Bringing together deep research with intimate, real stories – from women who pay thousands for hymen reconstruction to men who fear their inexperience defines them – this is a revitalisation of sex education for the twenty-first century.
