Sex at Dawn in the News

Rate: 0 Flag

We're thrilled to report that our book is getting a lot of media attention. (Hey Terry Gross, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert . . . call us!)

Look for me as "guest expert" in next week's column from Dan Savage, which appears just about everywhere on line and in print—unless you're prudish; it's pretty raunchy. We also did a phone interview that will be in the next Savage Love podcast (free, via iTunes). Mr. Savage (whom I've never met) has been very generous in his praise of our book, writing:

Sex At Dawn is the single most important book about human sexuality since Alfred Kinsey unleashed Sexual Behavior in the Human Male on the American public in 1948." 

He continues, "Want to understand why men married to supermodels cheat? Why so many marriages are sexless? Why paternity tests often reveal that the guy whose name is on the birth certificate isn’t the kid’s biological father? Go and buy a copy of Sex At Dawn. Anyone who’s ever struggled with monogamy—which, if people were honest, would be everyone—needs to read this book. Go get your hands on a copy now.”

Having spent most of the past ten years working on this book, I think it's pretty important too, but "since Kinsey?" Probably not, but hey, get a copy and let us know what you think (especially if you agree with Dan!).

Last night, I did an interview for RTV, which I'll embed here. I'm not thrilled with it (I need to sharpen my answers), but it's a start.

Here are some links to other stories, interviews, reviews of the book. As always, you can find all this at sexatdawn.com

Happy Independence Day.

congratulations .. are you saying that jon stewart would be your dream interview?
Yeah, I think he combines the intelligent questions with the perfect demographic for our book. But frankly, I'll take anything I can get!
ah yes be careful what you wish for, you might end up on the receiving end of his acerbic wit...
That's ok. The only thing worse than being talked about (by Jon Stewart) is not being talked about. . .
maybe you could release a porn tape. hahaha.
er, damn, that actually gives me an idea. if you put yourself out there as a scientific perspective/commentator on the various spectacles/infidelities recently coursing in the media eg tiger woods, governer whats-his-name, jesse james, etcetera [is it just me or does it seem like an unusally frequent rash?]--- now THAT would probably have a serious chance of showing up in the media.
Been there, done that. If you check our web site, under "media attention" you'll see my comments about Spitzer in the Philadelphia Enquirer, and Jesse James in Cosmo. I've written about Tiger at various places and now we're just hoping for a really big scandal, since our book came out last week. Timing is everything, as they say.
