Sex Facts: A Handbook for the Carnally Curious Paperback 1995
Sex Facts provides a fascinating cultural perspective on human sexuality and its impact on our lives.
According to a recent survey of 1,500 households, American adults have sex an average 57 times a year, or about once every week. Herodotus, Greek historian and storyteller of the fifth century B.C., claimed that the marriage customs of the Nasamones of Libya required the bride to have sex with all of the male celebrants at the wedding party. In 1987, 368 females were arrested in the United States for forcible rape. Approximately 150 calories are expended during intercourse.
This book presents hundreds of sexual facts and questions about the sexual customs of different cultures, ranging from the commonplace to bizarre.
Sex: No other subject has so universally preoccupied the hearts and minds of people throughout the ages. Today we are continually bombarded by sexual images, both blatant and subliminal, and they influence every aspect of our lives - from the clothes we wear to the food we eat. Sex Facts is a fun book for anyone who wishes to get a little. . . trivia, that is!
