Pressestimmen

“This book should be read by every woman on earth... a must-read for anyone with even a remote erotic interest in the female gender.”--Salon.com (Salon.com)

“...Shatters many of our most cherished myths about desire.”--The Atlantic (The Atlantic)

“Daniel Bergner has written a keenly intelligent book about a subject that often exceeds our intelligence: What Do Women Want?” (Gay Talese)

Totally engrossing.”--New York magazine (New York magazine)

“Fascinating.... Threatens to disrupt all the modern stereotypes of female sexuality.”--Slate (Slate)

“At last, we have a new perspective on the wilds of female desire, in rousing tableaux, as women, men, sexologists, bonobos, erotic gurus, and many others provide frank, vivid answers to the question that has haunted [us] for far too long: What do women want? The answer will fascinate all.” (Diane Ackerman, author of A Natural History of Love)

“Accessible and informative prose . . . this page-turning book will have readers questioning some of their most ingrained beliefs about women, men, society, and sex.” (Publishers Weekly)

“It’s everything you wanted to know about sex but didn’t know to ask. Daniel Bergner upends long-standing myths about women and sex—everything from nature of attraction and pursuit to prevalence of taboo fantasies to monogamy itself.” (New York Post)

What Do Women Want? adds both steam and explosives into the national conversation-or preoccupation-with what it means to be a woman today.” (Vogue)

“Bergner lays out the history of this brainwashing and then debunks it in his entertaining new book, What do Women Want?. He recaps ingenious studies that have plumbed our desires, including those we deny or hide from ourselves.” (Elle)

Buchrückseite

When it comes to sex, common wisdom holds that men roam while women crave closeness and commitment. But in this provocative, headline-making book, Daniel Bergner turns everything we thought we knew about women's arousal and desire inside out. Drawing on extensive research and interviews with renowned behavioral scientists, sexologists, psychologists, and everyday women, he forces us to reconsider long-held notions about female sexuality.

This bold and captivating journey into the world of female desire explores answers to such thought-provoking questions as: Are women perhaps the less monogamous sex? What effect do intimacy and emotional connection really have on lust? What is the role of narcissism—the desire to be desired—in female sexuality? Are political gains for women ("No means no") detrimental in the bedroom? And is the hunt for a "female Viagra" anything but a search for the cure for monogamy?

Bergner goes behind the scenes of some of the most groundbreaking experiments on sexuality today and confronts us with controversial, sometimes uncomfortable findings. Incendiary, profoundly insightful, and brilliantly illuminating, What Do Women Want? will change the conversation about women and sex, and is sure to spark dynamic discussion for years to come.

the author seems to have just finished a college creative writing course. Pages and pages of this book are filled with pointless descriptions of the physical appearance or childhood memories of the scientists whose research is discussed. I found myself skipping these superfluous passages more and more often. The book could have been written in half as many pages... and I suspect that most of the "creative writing" serves as a filler. In fact, the layout of the book (font size, line spacing etc.) all seem to suggest that, had it been published normally, the resultant book would only have been about 50 pages in length.

That being said, these 50 or so pages are filled with very good research. The studies and experiments discussed are fascinating, and also important. In a way the book can be used as a starting point or reference work to gain an overview of the research being done and to find further information.

One last critical point on the chapter discussing animal sexuality: the author seems to be transfixed by rat sexuality, to the point that it got a little annoying. Simply because rats do X or Y does not mean that this is in any way significant for human sexuality. The author seems to have forgotten this. The chapter would have been better spent discussing bonobo sexuality, which really does have implications for human sexuality.

If you have travelled here using a time machine and you're actually from the Victorian age, you will be shocked with what this book has to tell you: it turns out women love to have sex. If you were born after 1900 I would recommend you to save yourself the trouble and not buy this book. Go make love to a woman. And if you are a woman: hook up and enjoy.

Spannend, ergänzend zu anderen Büchern (Nymphomania: A History. Carol Groneman)... empfehlenswert für alle, die kulturelle Normen ab und zu hinterfragen möchten.

This was a fun and quick read with all kinds of information which supports the argument that being a human who is sexual, who is allowed to be sexual, is a freedom accorded by society much more readily to males than to females. Ok, that to be desired is at the heart of women's desiring, is not new, but Bergner uncovers for the reader valuable information to demonstrate that desire precedes arousal in man...and woman.
