    Title: Dollars & Sex an Economist Puts a Price on Sex & Love
    Author: ADSHADE MARINA

    A big book on the economics of sex and love in the style of Freakonomics. Like Freakonomics and the many other books that followed in the same vein, Marina Adshade's DOLLARS AND SEX traffics in the mysteries of everyday life and how we, as humans, make decisions. But Adshade takes a more stimulating approach by focusing on the really juicy parts: how we make these decisions as they pertain to love, sex, and marriage. By gathering date from around the globe, asking the right questions, and making unconventional connections, Adshade is able to hold a mirror up to our collective libidinous behavior and tell us stories about ourselves that we may be surprised to learn. Among the book's more provocative lessons: More women than men are attending university, resulting in an increase in casual hook-ups, but a decline in long-term dating; Women care significantly about income when searching for love online, but they still prefer a really hot guy over one who is not (unless he makes a TON of money); Marriage rates are falling as women's education rates and wages increase, so if you want a better chance at marriage, you might want to spend less time in school!
