Summary "Do you think sex only shapes our lives in the bedroom? Think again. Your breakfast cereal. Your neighborhood's crime rate. Even your Amazon Prime account. Believe it or not, nearly every aspect of modern life has been shaped in some way by sex. In this fascinating journey through the human psyche, journalist Ross Benes digs deep into the hidden relationship between everyday human existence - including religion, politics, technology, and more - and our sexuality. Ranging from discussions of how the U.S. military inadvertently helped make San Francisco a mecca of gay culture to the original purpose of vibrators, Turned On is a revealing look at just how much sex shapes our society, and how debunking common myths and attitudes about sex can help us better understand what really influences human behavior as we continue to grapple with the wide-ranging effects our sexuality has on the world around us.
