This is not a sex book but a book about sex.

Isabel Losada brings her unique blend of humour, curiosity and honesty to the still-taboo subject of sexuality and pleasure. This is a brave, funny and often vulnerable quest to find out how we can make our sex lives better.

On behalf of all women, a slightly terrified Isabel begins with a women's workshop where she has to get naked; she journeys through the first international conference on clitoral stroking; is informed of eleven different forms of orgasm (ten of which she hasn' t had); and endures Kegel exercises and mystical sensations with tantric masters. Irreverent, yet open-minded, Sensation is both moving and challenging.

For anyone who has ever been tempted to dip their toes into the deep waters of sexual exploration, this book plunges you straight in.

Review quote

"I have learnt from Isabel that we are not approaching sex in a very conscious and connected way. It's very interesting to read a woman talking plainly and mechanically about sex. I want to learn this stuff." --Russell Brand

"Sensation is Isabel Losada's account of a year spent exploring the subject of female pleasure; part memoir, part guide, part manifesto for the the cause of more happiness and better relationships. In a happy blend of of informative and informal writing, Isabel has the knack of of presenting complex themes clearly and simply.... Sensation explores the gentle beauty of intimacy and pleasure in human relationships; it's impossible not to be entertained, educated, amused and inspired."

--The Amorist.

"Let's talk about sex. No, not that kind of sex. Not the kind of Christian Grey, multi-positioning screaming sex with props that 'everyone else' is apparently having. Let's talk instead about the much more important, deeply nourishing, 'normal' sex we could ALL be having if we brought more honesty to the bedside table.

"This kind of sex conversation is the point of Isabel Losada's new book, "Sensation: Adventures in Sex, Love and Laughter." Losada leaves no stone unturned - or should I say unturned-on? Nakedly frank and frankly nakedly necessary."

--Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller
