Hodgson covers a lot of ground in 234 pages - this is a pacey, intelligent and authoritative account with bags of wit.
I loved it.

Anyone who has negotiated the thrills of the chase for romance will smile with recognition and sigh in sympathy while reading this entertaining and well-researched history.

Sunday Times
Nichi's writing is articulate, entertaining, informative and eye-opening.

A fascinating look at our attitudes to sex and relationships from the 1700s to the present day. Thoroughly recommended.
