The Independent's guide to love & sex starts this Saturday 13th September. Free with the print edition

They're the great driving forces of human affairs: the source of our deepest feelings and the inspiration for much of our culture. Yet how much do we understand love and sex? The Independent begins a unique 14-part series devoted to all aspects of love and sex: from the physical to the spiritual, the scientific to the romantic, the sublime to the ridiculous.
