"Arousal, adultery, and desire . . . [The Curious History of Sex] is unavoidably an account of injustice against women, and a compelling one." --Guardian "She's mostly quite good company on the page. . . . Wherever we are heading, whatever your proclivities, Lister has this comment: 'I promise, it's all been done before.'" --Dwight Garner, New York Times "Buckle your trousers, fasten your seatbelts, here comes Kate Lister. Her curious history of sex is a wild ride, made all the more enjoyable by a wonderfully irreverent approach. If she ever tires of being an academic historian she might try stand-up comedy. I've never had so much fun learning stuff. . . . Bravo to Lister for her honesty, authority, candor, and especially her humor." --The Times "An eye opener. Thoughtful but fun, scholarly but spritely . . . and a bit rude!" --Sir Tony Robinson
