Waterstones Says

A funny book with serious intent, Sex Power Money interrogates this contentious triptych and examines the links between the three. Asking uncompromising questions about the sex industry, objectification and the erotic allure of immense wealth, Pascoe offers a splenetic, incisive and frequently hilarious account of the modern condition.

Award-winning comedian Sara Pascoe, following her hit book Animal, turns her attention to the things that really matter to humans - sex, power and money.

Deciding to confront her fear of the male libido, Pascoe 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?

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Sara Pascoe's Animal:

'Brilliant.' - Frankie Boyle

'Some comics serve up their anxieties just for laughs; Pascoe draws on hers to offer provocative (and positive) new perspectives on the world.' - The Guardian

'A tremendously exciting voice: timely, intelligent and buzzing with comedic charm . . . Pascoe has something to say and a thoroughly engaging way of saying it.' - The Times

'The funniest, best book about sexuality, sex and sexy - and not so sexy - time ever written. I love it.' - Jessica Hynes

“Not What I Expected”

This book is not what I expected. To be honest I’m not sure what I was expecting. Not for a prudish audience. This book is funny in parts but I feel it’s a bit long winded. Nice small chapters. It has took me over a... More
