Our friend Dr. Emily Nagoski debunks tired, widely held ideas about sex and replaces them with perfectly clear and scientifically sound explanations. One of those new ideas totally blew our minds, so we’re bringing you our take on the “Dual Control Model.”
Dr. Nagoski has compiled all of her brilliance into a book, called 'Come As You Are: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life.' Trust us, it’s a good read.

If you’d like a fun, illustrated guide that explains the model, check out "Oh Joy Sex Toy’s" version — the best web comic in the world.
