X Reply India ND says: April 1, 2017 at 11:40 pm Ahhh I really want to read This Book Is Gay! My sister in year 9 had an author talk at school by Juno so I saw the poster with that cover on. I don't think my sister got any of their books and she hasn't told me about it but I think it was really amazing how my school got an LGBTQ+ 🏳️🌈 person to come in as in the sex ed we have at the school it doesn't mention queer stuff Reply Emily says: April 1, 2017 at 11:42 pm does anyone know what degree Hannah got? it sounds interesting!🤗 Reply wellendore says: April 1, 2017 at 11:43 pm I want to but them all!!

It's a must for me. Reply saurabh bundele says: April 2, 2017 at 12:13 am how could you miss KAMASUTRA??? Reply Nel Meybrille says: April 2, 2017 at 12:27 am Whoa, I recommended Sex At Dawn to you!

Reply Michael Boland says: April 2, 2017 at 8:00 am Wait I thought you said that you got broken up with during the writing of your book? So I thought that meant you were single now because I remember you mentioning how you had been single for 5 years while writing your book as well. But maybe you've had 2 relationships since then, idk since that's part of your offline life haha Reply Fauler Perfektionist says: April 2, 2017 at 8:03 am "A Billion Wicked Thoughts"Hmm. If you have reason to believe that someone is asleep or in the bath, that's probably not a good time to disturb them. Reply Sawsan Boeisa says: April 2, 2017 at 8:09 am I wonder why most of the books about sex are by female writers… Reply lovestruck 1978 says: April 2, 2017 at 8:12 am ok but sixxxxsssssssth. not sicth. Reply Fauler Perfektionist says: April 2, 2017 at 8:15 am "Everyday Sexism"There is chauvinism and there is misogyny. While these terms are frequently used interchangeably, and they are compatible, they are not the same thing. A chauvinist responds to a woman with condescension, while a misogynist responds with hostility any time a woman demonstrates ambition or potential. A chauvinist who gets an assessment from a doctor who happens to be a woman is more likely to presume that she was granted this opportunity just because the system took pity on her and he's going to seek a second opinion from a doctor who happens to be a man, while a misogynist who is presented with a doctor who happens to be a woman is more likely to presume that she is part of a conspiracy to crowd all the men out of the professional careers. Reply Viktor Nagy says: April 2, 2017 at 8:41 am how can i order your book, without paying for it first? i mean, i want to read your book, but i don't want to give my credit card information to any site. i want to order it, ship it to my house, and pay the price for the deliveryman. IS there an option for this? Reply Evan Gately says: April 2, 2017 at 8:55 am will the live stream be on youtube Reply 19GOD98 says: April 2, 2017 at 9:06 am So confused. If your book doesn't come out until April 6th, then why did I find it in my local book shop?probably a simple answer to this, but I'm being a bit slow… Reply ChrisTheAspergerGuy says: April 2, 2017 at 9:12 am You don't have to worry about reading the Spinster book right away. Just save it for after you and your boyfriend break up. Reply Youtube Renegade says: April 2, 2017 at 9:26 am Some good book recommendations, some that don't quite tickle my fancy. Monogamy is definitely not natural. Only 40% of men ever got to pass on their genes because they would have multiple women to mate with. It was only the men who were strong, and manly that could provide resources and protection to the women that were selected by the women as mates. This was ultimately good for the species. It may sound like "sexism" but those accusations I feel would dissipate if modern women were suddenly tossed into the wild, during the ice age, and their biggest problems went from "mean words" to "sabertooth tigers wanting to prey on them."

Reply Miranda McKennitt says: April 2, 2017 at 10:23 am I've added some of those to my Audible wishlist! Thanks! Reply catsandstrawberries says: April 2, 2017 at 10:27 am Great book collection! Reply M Mic says: April 2, 2017 at 10:35 am Have you read the book 'Travesti' by Don Kulick? It is about (quote): "Sex, Gender and Culture Among Brazilian Transgendered Prostitutes." I read it for a Gender & Culture course in uni and it is a fascinating book. It's an interesting look at the lives of people who identify as Travesti, and at how gender and sexuality interact. I read it in one sitting. The stories were touching, interesting, and something I'd never read anything about before. A great book for anyone even slightly interested in sexuality and gender (including how masculinity is constructed). Reply Freddy Thornton says: April 2, 2017 at 10:54 am hannah you remind me so much of zoe sugg at 5:32! Reply George Pitt says: April 2, 2017 at 11:29 am Hannah, I've read about half of Come as You Are, and it is amazing! As a (homosexual) male, it's less aimed towards me, but it's honestly so fascinating, she fully pulls upon all her academic knowledge and stuff.Also, one of my favourite cartoonists did the illustrations (Erika Moen) and I think you might want to check out her stuff. She does this sex-ed and sex toy review comic that is fantastic called Oh Joy Sex Toy (OJST) and I think it's something you may appreciate.

Reply Matt Lang says: April 2, 2017 at 2:14 pm Would parrot that Sex at Dawn is a fascinating read. Very scientific. As someone also well versed in theatre, have you ever had the chance to see a staging of "In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play" by Sarah Ruhl? Given your academic background, I can't recommend it enough. Reply Phoebe L. Carpenter says: April 2, 2017 at 2:50 pm Is the Doing It already out? I saw it in Waterstones yesterday but that makes like no sense if the publication date is the 6th Reply elle hynes says: April 2, 2017 at 3:20 pm nearly died when I saw "the world of sex" – me and my friend recommend this essay to everyone, its so short but is such a great social commentary that is still ridiculously relevant!! Reply Caitlin Smulders says: April 2, 2017 at 3:35 pm For relationships: search Esther Perel! She has a book out called Mating in Captivity and two incredible Ted Talks Reply Alison Jane says: April 2, 2017 at 3:52 pm I don't know if you're prepared for Henry Miller… Reply Gina says: April 2, 2017 at 4:33 pm Need every single one of these! They sound bloody brilliant. 👅 Reply Emily Med says: April 2, 2017 at 5:04 pm can you do a video about sexual history ? since you major in it. Reply celine says: April 2, 2017 at 7:04 pm Just added four new books to my 'To buy and read' shelf, there go my savings…Also, you probably helped me decide what to study. Couldn't decide between women's history or sex education but sexual history sounds amazing! Need to do some research! xx Reply Franzi ska says: April 2, 2017 at 7:36 pm what's about the abc's of lgbt?

Reply Ruxandra Bogdan says: April 2, 2017 at 9:42 pm Am I the only one who would actually love to see some videos on sexual history?? I feel like that's such a niche topic that really doesn't get much exposure, but I'd be so interested in learning more about it! Reply n1kk117 says: April 3, 2017 at 6:52 am Sex At Dawn is good read it in my human sexuality class and I also have had A Billion Wicked Thoughts on my tbr list for a bit now Reply Karou Auri says: April 3, 2017 at 9:32 am Ah!

I'm currently reading Sex at Dawn!!!! I feel a little bit closer to you now. hahaha Reply Georgia C says: April 4, 2017 at 2:41 pm i know you only briefly mentioned it in this video, but could you do a video on choosing a dissertation title please? i'm a second year history student now and i'm sooo stressed about picking a topic that won't bore me to death, and i'll have enough primary and secondary sources for it, and that is in a field that's not overstudied but also studied enough to have valuable relevant resources to not struggle Reply Ezra Adkins says: April 5, 2017 at 8:50 pm Come as you are. literally will change your world. it's very science put into social contexts and it's mind blowing my brilliant. Reply Rosa Brettell says: April 6, 2017 at 11:32 am you will love Animal by Sara Pascoe when you read it, its lovely and funny and informative and its one of my favourite books Reply Rachel Leslie says: April 7, 2017 at 6:49 am This makes me feel way better about having a library full of books I have yet to read! My to-read list seems to grow much faster than my have-read. Someone lock me in my room until I've read them all please and thank you. Reply Sophie O'Reilly says: April 7, 2017 at 2:20 pm Veronique Mottier (author of A Short Introduction to Sexuality) is my director of studies at Jesus College, Cambridge!

That's cute. :)))) Reply magicjocelyn says: May 17, 2017 at 2:25 am i get hermione vibes so hard from hannah tbh Reply Chelsey Blair Kendig says: June 4, 2017 at 1:17 pm 1. i read everyday sexism last week (late because for some reason I thought i read it or listened to the audiobook ages ago, or alternatively thought it was one of the graphic non-fiction books that have been popular lately. so my brain alternated between conflating it with several feminism books I did read and/or "take it as a compliment," apparently but once i realized my mistake I dove into it–and have never been as shaken by a book in my life. each chapter contains a deep analysis of a topic affecting female-identified types followed by relevant tweets and comments received by the project. the mix of clean facts and anecdotes is powerful, depressing, enlightening, and empowering all at once, and really painted a picture of the true situation in all parts of the world. also, Bates did a good job of providing intersectionality while acknowledging her own ignorance & privilege. this stood out to me in particular because she included disabled women in multiple examples throughout the book, which is rare. most feminist books will only mention us once, typically in a chapter near the end that lumps together all the less trendy identities so that the writer can point to it whenever their inclusivity is challenged. of course, including us meant describing the injustices we face, but the fact that this gave me new information is an important consequence of the pervasive erasure Bates mostly avoids while calling out others in the movement/community. overall, it's one that took this rapid reader a few days to get through because i kept pausing to process. (also sex at dawn was one of my first glimpses into the study of human sexuality, and it's eye opening.) Reply Parigi says: July 21, 2017 at 4:34 am Another book that's really really good that I think you'd like is "Inferior : How Science Got Women Wrong – and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story" by Angela Saini. It's just recently been released but it's amazing. It's relatively easy to read but it's very sciency (obviously). It talks about the science of sex differences and how basically people of different sexes are way more similar than they are different and that most of the things that we think are inbuilt biological things are actually just constructed social things. It covers a wide range of topics as well from sex differences in the brain to different cultures approaches to relationships and families and stuff (so more on monogamy not necessarily being the one "natural" way of being in a relationship).

It’s a point-by-point rebuttal of the first book. I’d be curious to know what you think after reading both.
