As in other fields of interest, the first take on the problem is to establish words and concepts that enables us to separate the interesting parts from the boring. The title "How to think more about sex" might give the idea that we need to spend more time thinking about sex. That is hardly needed. Rather, the book is about new ways to think about sex. You could say that de Botton writes like Shakespeare: Demonstrates what it is to be human, without trying to tell you what to do about it.
A modern book about sex can not refrain from discussing adultery. Also here, de Botton explains why it is so tempting while so revolting if your find that your partner has done so.
I highly recommend this little book. You will not learn anything about sex but, as with Shakespeare, you will learn a lot about yourself. Can you ask for more?
