Men and Sex

Bettina has spent much of her adult life with men talking to her about their sex lives – or rather the lack of sex in their lives. This was the inspiration for her best-selling book, The Sex Diaries, which shows how couples deal with mismatched desire. Men wishing and hoping for more sex while all many women long for it is the bliss of uninterrupted sleep.

The extraordinary stories from the men taking part in her research inspired her second book, What Men Want. All about why sex matters so much to men. Over 150 men kept diaries for Bettina, talking about what it is like to live with that constant sparking sexual energy – relentless, uncontrollable, all-consuming.

More recently Bettina has been following up with stories on this issue. Like this article on the growing male sex drought.

And this one, on “Hard dogs to keep on the porch” – about men and fidelity.

And just for fun – what’s so great about great sex?
