Sara Pascoe – Sex Power Money

Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival Online 2020
Broadcast Date
Thursday 20 August

After the great success of Animal: The Autobiography of a Female Body, Sara returns to the Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival with a hilarious confrontation – with the male libido. With characteristic directness, spiced with a riotous, completely irreverent sense of humour, Sara wonders about modern masculinity in some detail, some of it eye-watering. When they masturbate, why is the well-being of the people they look at while doing it of no concern to them? Why are sex workers the perennial subject of such stigma? These and other conundra prompt responses from Sara that will make the reader laugh out loud.

Sex Power Money is more than a book title. It sums up all of the things that really matter. Informed by quirky anecdote, real life experience, the views of others, a great deal of research and animated by Sara’s extraordinary sense of humour, her new book is required reading – for both genders.

Sara talks to Viv Groskop.
