1. Come As You Are: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life by Emily Nagoski

There are as many types of female orgasms as there are women in the world. This groundbreaking book on female pleasure is a must-read for men and women alike. It debunks popular myths surrounding the root of female pleasure and is brimming over with top tips on how to ensure maximum connection and titillation during sex. Come As You Are also explains how not to let popular culture destroy your sex drive and why the popular idea of having a sex drive is actually a myth.

2. Sex At Dawn: How we mate, why we stray, and what it means for modern relationships by Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá

Three cheers for casual sex?! If you’re someone who favors the Adam, Eve, and Steve story over the traditional origin myth, this text is your new bible. Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá’s New York Times bestseller examines the evolution of monogamy in humans. They claim that loving one person is not a natural state for humans and trace this polyamorous past back to the mating patterns of our hunter-gatherer ancestors. The book is chock full of sociological explanations to explode everything you think you know about sex: e.g. why women take longer to reach orgasm than men and how casual sex was crucial to our ancestors’ survival. There is also an interesting fact relating to female desire and copulating bonobos that you shouldn’t miss.

3. Sex, Murder, and the Meaning of Life: A Psychologist Investigates How Evolution, Cognition, and Complexity Are Revolutionizing Our View of Human Nature by Douglas T. Kenrick

Crazy in love? Don’t feel too bad. This heightened state may be totally out of your control. Douglas T. Kenrick’s terrifying title looks at the ways that our survival and reproductive instincts influence our behavior. From over-the-top consumption to cold-blooded murder, it seems that humans will do just about anything to reproduce. In these blinks you’ll find out why 76% of students polled at a U.S. university had homicidal fantasies and why an average-looking man with a Rolex is more attractive than a handsome one without a Rolex.

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

Do you ever feel a disconnection between how sex is presented in contemporary culture and how you actually relate to sex in your real life? Rachel Hills does. In her book The Sex Myth, she explains how modern lovers are under considerable pressure to meet today’s ever-rising standards of how to have great, hot sex. Hills’ tip explains how this skewed perception of sexuality developed and offers to great workarounds to defy artificial expectations and embrace your natural sexual rhythm.

5. Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

Between 2005 and 2012, over one-third of Americans claimed to have found love through the internet. With the dawn of dating apps, addictive smartphone culture, and improved matchmaker algorithms, online dating and online hook-ups are growing increasingly popular. This groundbreaking study from US funnyman Aziz Ansari and NYU sociologist Eric Klinenberg traces how dating and mating rituals have evolved and adapted to keep up with the online dating boom.
