What Women Really Want


Certainly, women are no better suited for monogamy than men are. That, I think, is clear. It seems possible, if you look at some of the data, that women are even less well-suited for monogamy than men.

Salon‘s Tracy Clark-Flory interviews Daniel Bergner about What Do Women Want?, his new book on female sexuality.

Clark-Flory’s take on the book? “This book should be read by every woman on earth.” (Italics wholeheartedly hers.)

Meanwhile, some male readers have told Bergner he’s “scared the bejesus out of” them.
