BENEATH THE VENEER OF GLOSSY HEDONISM

launch for The Sex Myth by Rachel Hills > SEPT 2


Join us for the Toronto launch of The Sex Myth  by Rachel Hills from Simon & Schuster.

ABOUT THE BOOK
From a bold new feminist voice, a book that will change the way you think about your sex life. Fifty years after the sexual revolution, we are told that we live in a time of unprecedented sexual freedom; that if anything, we are too free now. But beneath the veneer of glossy hedonism, millennial journalist Rachel Hills argues that we are controlled by a new brand of sexual convention: one which influences all of us—woman or man, straight or gay, liberal or conservative. At the root of this silent code lies the Sex Myth—the defining significance we invest in sexuality that once meant we were dirty if we did  have sex, and now means we are defective if we don’t  do it enough. 

Equal parts social commentary, pop culture, and powerful personal anecdotes from people across the English-speaking world, The Sex Myth  exposes the invisible norms and unspoken assumptions that shape the way we think about sex today.
