“[Brodman] shares the results of years of research and world travel to show . . . just how wildly divergent ideas about sexuality and gender roles can be.” —Vice This book is a humorous glimpse of a wide range of stereotype-busting sexual, relationship, and romantic mores around the world. It is fun, interesting, and eye-opening! For example, places where women control the mating game, set marriage rules, and marry one another for political power. The fact that it’s all true also makes it fascinating. Take a romp through a rollicking worldwide tour with LOL views of extraordinary sexual customs. It will astound and regale you. At the same time, it proves sex is like happiness—universally sought but subjectively enjoyed. “This is the world’s weirdest and funniest reality show. But it’s more. It’s fascinating and smart, and all true.” —Richard Bangs, adventurer, author, and TV personality “It’s a scientific fact! Women have better orgasms with funny partners. Read this hilarious book and you’ll have more and better sex, happier relationships and a healthier libido!” —Joanne Sandler, former Deputy Executive Director of the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), senior associate of [email protected], co-producer of the popular podcast Two Old Bitches “Fresh, intriguing and of course titillating . . . delve into rarely seen corners of the world, enjoy a good laugh, and learn from a trained scholar as she takes you on this journey that reveals ‘Sex Rules’ in all their staggering variety.” —Ed Robbins, award-winning director-writer-producer and digital journalist

A Yale-educated Renaissance man, S. Dillon Ripley was a Òcourtly, determined, hugely ambitious, energetic, funny, and colorful ornithologist, conservationist, and cultural standard-bearerÓ who led the Smithsonian Institution for twenty years, during its greatest period of growth. During his watch, from 1964 to 1984, the SI added eight new museums and seven new research centers and began publication of the Smithsonian magazine. It was RipleyÕs vision that transformed Òthe nationÕs atticÓ from a dusty archive to a vibrant educational and cultural institution, just as he had transformed YaleÕs Peabody museum before it. Prior to his career at the SI, and running parallel with it for the rest of his life, was RipleyÕs work as an ornithologist, begun in New Guinea in the 1930s, continued through his PhD from Harvard in 1943, and culminating in his landmark thirty-year project documenting the bird life of India. His lifelong passion for ornithology led him to positions of leadership in worldwide nature conservation. In the midst of these endeavors he was recruited in 1944 to the Office of Strategic Services, a Yalie club at the outset that became the forerunner of the modern CIA. Posted to Ceylon, he recruited and ran agents who reported from and infiltrated Japanese-held Southeast Asia. Roger D. Stone worked with Ripley on the board of the World Wildlife Fund. He has access to the Ripley familyÕs archives and photos, as well as to the voluminous archives at the Smithsonian and the National Archives, and to over forty hours of transcribed interviews, conducted with Ripley at the Smithsonian.
