Sex by Numbers
By

Rating
Whatever society we live in, and however open-minded we like to think we are, when it comes to our sex lives we all like to keep a few secrets. But this makes the jobs of sexologists - professionals who study sexual behaviour - pretty difficult. Luckily, David Spiegelhalter, Professor of Risk at Cambridge University, is here to unravel the web of exaggerations, misdirections and downright lies that surround sex in modern society. Drawing on the NATSAL survey, the widest survey of sexual behaviour since the Kinsey Report, he answers crucial questions such as what are we all doing? How often? And how has it changed? Accompanying a major Wellcome exhibition on the same subject, Sex by Numbers is an informed and entertaining look at the most enduring of human obsessions, from one-night stands to the seven-year itch.

Reviews

Teems with eyebrow-raising numbers, which have been verified by the strongest statistical tools in academia's arsenal -- Zoe Cormier BBC Focus Rewarding ... David Spiegelhalter manages to make the figures side of sex stats seem as interesting as the sexual, which is quite a feat ... This is a clever, hugely readable book, sometimes titillating and occasionally astounding. -- James McConnachie Sunday Times
