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

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 masturbate to?
and
Why is there such stigma around those who work in the sex industry?
when
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
