I realized in my mid-twenties that there was no book out there that covered sex from a socio-cultural perspective,” Hills continued. “There were ones that covered it from a feminist perspective or a queer theory perspective but none that incorporated all people whether they’re straight, gay, men or women.”
Hills hopes that “The Sex Myth” will fill that void for young people today, helping them understand how their approach to sex and relationships is shaped by society and culture. “I want to make the book that my 23-year-old self would have appreciated having,” she said.
“My hope is for young people who feel anxious about their sex lives or relationships in one way or another to realize that they’re not alone, they’re not abnormal,” Hills said.
