Product description

Product Description

In Better Than Sex ,16 exceptional writers take a magnifying glass to sex and romance in the digital age.

Their perspectives range from the personal and political to the scientific and subversive. What emerges is a fascinating exploration of the changing landscape of love, where Tinder trolls and high-school sweethearts jostle with sex shop senseis and radical autonomy.

Lena Dunham finds herself at a crossroads between her progressive politics and her ambivalence towards marriage. Zan Rowe, Maggie MK Hess and Van Badham go fishing in the online dating pool. Celeste Liddle examines the tug-of-war between individuality, relationship and community for Aboriginal women. And Roxane Gay wades into grief, guilt and love in an arresting piece of short fiction.

Witty, challenging and thoughtprovoking, Better Than Sex presents an eye-opening perspective on the love lives of modern women.
