Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy

Screw everyone seems to be comic Ophira Eisenberg’s wisecracking account of the way she spent such a lot of her existence asserting “yes” to everything—and everyone—and how that perspective eventually helped her conquer her phobia of commitment.

Skeptical approximately long term relationships, Eisenberg approached courting as a type of analysis scan from early on: she spent her twenties touring from futon to futon and collecting facts, figuring that someday she’d positioned all of it jointly someway and construct her personal ideal Frankenmate. whilst she met a man who didn’t fall for the emotionally cavalier facade she’d developed (a man who sought after marriage and monogamy), she knew it used to be time to reevaluate.

From her first kiss to announcing “I do,” Screw everyone seems to be a good, hilarious chronicle of ways one lady came across herself, conquered her fears, or even came across the “real thing”—one promiscuous come across at a time.

Le Sexe, d'hier à aujourd'hui

Un landscape de los angeles sexualité à travers les âges.
La pulsion sexuelle obéit à bien d’autres appels qu’à celui de los angeles survie de l’espèce, et témoigne, par les actes qu’elle induit, d’une grande diversité d’objets, de formes et de sens. Quelques repères dans l’histoire des moeurs humaines, allant de l’Antiquité à nos jours, permettent de le constater : en dépit de l’universalité des pratiques, ni leur forme, ni leur signification, ni les limites qu’on leur donne ne sont restées les mêmes, à travers l’histoire et les cultures, comme le montre l. a. première partie de cet ouvrage. Aujourd’hui, beaucoup de pratiques sexuelles qui, avant les années 1970, restaient problématiques voire réprouvées, sont ouvertement revendiquées et font l’objet de nombreuses études. On s’interroge sur los angeles libido du mâle nouveau et sur les formes de los angeles sexualité féminine. On scrute les pratiques des teens comme celles des personnes âgées. On inventorie les comportements pornomaniaques, les paraphilies… Ces nouveaux comportements sont tantôt qualifiés comme les éléments nécessaires d’une libéralisation des moeurs, tantôt, au contraire, comme un probability menaçant l’intégrité de chacun, et même de los angeles société. Cet ouvrage croise les regards de spécialistes de toutes disciplines – historiens, sociologues, sexologues, psychologues… – pour former un landscape de l. a. sexualité à travers les âges.
