Product Description

Well-researched, superbly written, often punchy ... always entertaining’ DAVID CHRISTIAN, bestselling author of Origin Story

‘If you’ve ever felt that sex was confusing, messy or slightly ridiculous, this book is for you’ EMMA BYRNE, author of Swearing Is Good for You

‘David Baker’s wonderful book offers information, entertainment and insight’ SUSAN QUILLIAM, co-author of The Joy of Sex

With a foreword by Simon Whistler


How did sex begin? How did it evolve to be so varied and complex in humans? What influence does our genetic ancestry have on our love life today? And what might sex look like in the future?

The Shortest History of Sex traces exactly where all the facets of human sexuality stemmed from, starting at the creation of sex approximately two billion years ago and chasing it down our evolutionary family tree – from dinosaurs to primates and the earliest humans – until we arrive at the present phenomena of Tinder and OnlyFans, revealing why humanity’s baffling array of passions, impulses and fetishes are the way they are. Finally, it looks at the horizon to figure out where current trends may lead us, as humans navigate the brave new world of technology.

The result is a revealing and utterly unique insight into history and human behaviour – and the dance between Nature and Nurture in society.
