The greatest history of sex ever written, from prokaryotes to robots.

Despite its vaguely suggestive name, the Big Bang created a sexless universe and remained so for a long time. But then, once the Pandora's box of sex was opened, living beings enthusiastically threw themselves into the operation. From the first microorganisms to dinosaurs, from hominids to Tinder and OnlyFans: by studying the evolution of sexual behavior on Earth we take an incredible journey through the transformation of life in all its forms of increasing complexity, from brute organic matter to neurotics and refined sentient beings who crowd shopping centers today. A surprising journey of discovery in which history, biology and society intertwine to reveal the origins of what we are and what we feel. Accompanying us in this world of hormones, passions and adaptive purposes is David Baker, an Australian historian, researcher and teacher who, without any prejudice, expertly balancing science and humour, guides us to understanding, in all its aspects, one of the most powerful and long-lived forces that govern nature. By analyzing the transformations of sexual tastes and behaviors in the different eras of man - from prehistoric hunters and gatherers, through farmers, up to the present - we will be able to understand how we have come to live this historical moment, in which the sexual life of human beings humans has assumed the centrality we know. But Baker doesn't stop at today, he also looks to the future and, based on current trends, imagines how man will manage his impulses in a world shaped by technology.
