The Sex Myth: The Gap Between Our Fantasies and Reality by Rachel Hills

The Sex Myth (2015) is about the various myths and misunderstandings that surround people’s sexuality today. In the past, bigoted ideas stemmed from a lack of information.

Find out how the old myths have been replaced by a whole new set of misguided ideas about what kind of sex we’re supposed to be having.

Rachel Hills is an Australian journalist who currently lives in New York City. Her writing has appeared in a number of publications, including Vogue, New York Magazine, Cosmopolitan and the Atlantic. The Sex Myth is her first book.
