What Do Women Want?

What Do Women Want?

by Daniel Bergner


Our society is obsessed with sex. And yet, female desire remains a misunderstood concept. To uncover the nature of lust in women, one has to understand the mind-body connection and the way arousal works and the role of physiological processes.

Daniel Bergner is a critically acclaimed journalist and author of award-winning nonfiction books, such as Sing for Your Life and In the Land of Magic Soldiers. In What Do Women Want, Bergner takes a scientific approach to tackling the age-old question. Through evidence from research studies and women's firsthand accounts, we are led to understand female desire from both a scientific and personal perspective.

Favorite quote

That women's desire – its inherent range and innate power – is an underestimated and innate power, even in our times, when all can seem so sexually inundated, so far beyond restriction.
