177 Lovers and Counting:
My Life as a Sex Researcher

by Dr. Leanna Wolfe

177 Lovers and Counting is a totally unique book unlike anything else you have ever seen or read! It is truly a page-turner filled with the intimate stories of the author's own relationships combined with her fascinating observational research into other cultures' relationship practices. I just can't decide which is more compelling and riveting: the author's own personal experiences with sex, love, and relationships or her travels around the world studying and documenting how diverse cultures approach love, sex, courtship, and marriage.

The author's fearlessness and honesty about her love life and her sexual journey throughout her life are truly revolutionary and refreshing. And her experience as a professional anthropologist and sexologist allows her to provide us with an astute analysis of the sexual mores, relationship styles, and trends of the past half-century. From exploring Swingers culture in America and polyamory and drugs at Burning Man, to studying courtship and arranged marriages in India and polygamy in East Africa, this book covers it all, and I can guarantee that anyone reading it will learn way more than they ever expected!

As Glen Olson, author of "Fifty Years of Polyamory in America," says, "It's a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the complexities of love in the modern world. From the rituals of remote tribes to the bedrooms of the modern world, the author takes us on a journey across continents and through time, challenging preconceived notions of what is 'normal' and 'natural."

My only question after reading the book is, "Who will play Leanna in the movie?" I feel certain that this book will be be made into a feature film, since it has all the ingredients of a great movie: romance, sex, heartbreak, international travel to several continents, breathtaking and surprising locations, intimate portraits and respectful and open-minded experiences of cultures very different than those generally portrayed in the media. Stay tuned!
