Looking for the best sex books of all time?
You're in the right place!
Here's what you'll find on this page...
Sex matters. It’s why we’re here. It’s how we multiply. It permeates our thoughts and our actions and our cultures. It plays a main role in many of the highest and lowest emotions and experiences in our lives.
And yet it’s a topic we don’t really think, learn and talk about nearly enough.
So here are 30 of the best nonfiction sex books ever written.
They’ll surprise you. They’ll entertain you. But most of all, they’ll teach you new things about one of humanities most pervasive past-times that you may have never even thought about or guessed.
And THAT matters. Because whoever you are, whatever you believe and whatever you think (or refuse to think) about sex – that’s your decision. And the best way to make great decisions starts with gathering the best knowledge you can.
The 30 Best Sex Books Ever Written
Why these best sex books and not others? To stay objective, I rank all my book recommendations by what’s most loved (Goodreads rating), what’s most popular (Goodreads review count) and what’s proven timelessly relevant (first publication date).
This isn’t a whimsical list. It’s a data-driven, crowdsourced collection of the best sex books ever published as decided by book lovers just like you. (Note: To maximise diversity, I only include the top ranking book from any series in a list.)
And if you think something's missing? I LOVE book recommendations so if there are any other best sex books that you think deserve mentioning, email me and I’ll be sure to include them in the next round of updates.
Until then, enjoy this ultimate list of the 30 best sex books of all time...
