An addictive collection of real-life sex diaries by ordinary people in the UK
You've read the fiction, now find out what really goes on behind closed doors
You've spent a long hard week at the office and your social life has seen better days. All the while you've contemplated thoughts that you wouldn't even share with your best friend: the true depths of your latest romantic obsession; your unorthodox fantasies; your deep-rooted anxiety that no-one will ever love you. Well, so has everyone else around you. We all do it - all day, every day - and this entire universe of consciousness has remained silent. Until now.
When Arianne Cohen asked over 200 ordinary people from all walks of life to record their inner-most thoughts and confessions for one week, the results were extraordinary. A hidden world of longing, desire, fantasy, and sex - both real and imagined, was revealed.
Now the best diarists from all over the country have been brought together. From the kinky bride-to-be and the adulterous businessman to the grandmother yearning for a good romp, these diaries provide a tantalising and steamy glimpse into their private lives and longings.
Eye-opening and deliciously voyeuristic, it will change the way you think about your friends, colleagues, neighbours and fellow commuters forever.
