Award-winning comedian Sara Pascoe turns her attention to the things that really matter to humans - sex, power and money.
'A genuinely hilarious explanation of the science of sex' FRANKIE BOYLE
'I've never read a book so fast and laughed so loudly while learning so much. Pascoe is a sage for our times.' DEBORAH FRANCES-WHITE, The Guilty Feminist
Following her hit book Animal, Sara Pascoe decides to confront her fear of the male libido, and turns her attention to the things that really matter to humans, delving into such questions as:
Why don't people care about the welfare of the people they m********e to?
Why is there such stigma around those who work in the sex industry?
Some women still want men to buy them dinner?
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. Drawing on anecdotal experience, unqualified opinion, interviews and original research, Sex Power Money is thought-provoking and riotously funny: a fresh take on the oldest discussion.
'Important, timely, poignant, mind-blowing and VERY FUNNY. Written with kindness, bravery and ridiculous attention to detail, it will make you feel cleverer without all the usual effort.' AISLING BEA

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
To no-one’s surprise, Sara Pascoe’s Animals was a riotously funny first foray into book writing. It also showed off a fiercely intelligent, scientific mind that she puts to fine use again here. A collision of unfiltered comedy, hard-won personal experience and anthropological study, Sex, Power, Money grits its teeth to explore hard truths about the male libido. How addictive is porn, really? Does wealth affect sex? Why do we continue to judge sex workers? Her findings are presented with biting humour and an even-handedness that show she’s a comedian determined to inspire and enlighten—not shock.
