    A gripping exploration of the relationship between sex and our society, with a foreword by bestselling author A.J. Jacobs

    Why do political leaders become entangled in so many sex scandals? How did the U.S. military inadvertently help make San Francisco a mecca of gay culture? And what was the original purpose of vibrators? Find out the answers to all these questions and more as journalist Ross Benes delves into the complicated relationship between everyday human life--including religion, politics, and technology--and our sexuality.

    Drawing on history, psychology, sociology, and more, The Sex Effect combines innovative research and analysis with captivating anecdotes to reveal just how much sex shapes our society--and what it means for us as humans as we continue to struggle with the wide-ranging effects our sexuality has on the world around us.
