Aree hat do you know about female sexuality? Martin pulls no punches. Her bestselling memoir Primates of Park Avenue cast her as an anthropologist observing the habits of her Upper East Side neighbours. The book caused a furore, and is currently being developed as a TV series, with Martin as exec producer.
Her new book, out this week, should be equally provocative.
You have to scroll through another 25, including Sigmund Freud and Alfred Kinsey, before ate arrive at a female name: Mary Calderonewho championed sex education. And even in the subsequent 30 names there are only five women, including both Virginia Johnson partner of Adult looking hot sex Yelm famous, and male, William Mastersand Shere Hite.

Another element in the mix, she says, was the finding that a third of women who are having an extramarital relationship say their marriage or long-term partnership is happy or very happy. What does all this mean, in a practical sense, for our sex lives?
And there are all these new vibrators out there — and anything new womsn can introduce will make a big difference to your sex life. Why does that help?
A thrilling activity is ideal: The trick here, counsels Martin, is for them to keep on and on asking. Men Sdeking shocked, but also gratified and thrilled, when they find out how sexually exciting we can be when we get past the inhibitions that have been socialised into us.
Martin quotes the US statistics: And that, says Martin, is hugely significant.
