Many and varied are the guides to achieving a better sex life and (truth be told) which of us do not feel there is something we might learn in this arena? With Supersex
, Tracey Cox has created something rather different in the overcrowded field of sex manuals. Apart from being a rather handsomely designed piece of work (garnished, of course, with the requisite number of intertwining naked bodies), Cox avoids either the po-faced seriousness of some sex manuals or the relentless facetiousness of others: she comes up with a sane, humorous and very human approach to a subject that concerns us all.
Democratically, Cox addresses the sexual needs of both men and women (although, surprisingly, the book inclines more to the former than the latter) and lays out in frank, systematic prose the perfect approach to attaining that transfiguring bedroom experience. Needless to say, not everything here is orgasm-fixated; the author is committed to increasing our sensuality and sensitivity, and the book's strongest sections (such as that on oral sex) have subtlety as well as eroticism. The beautiful models (male and female) are not difficult to look at either, although few of us look like these firm-bodied Adonises (but we can dream, can't we?). The illustrations are generally more discreet than we are used to these days, which is a surprise. Nevertheless, this is a worth a dozen of its rival volumes on the sex-help shelves. About time you spruced up your sexual technique? There's now a Dorling Kindersley book that can help you do just that. --Barry Forshaw
