Everything you will ever want to know about sex... ;-))
on 9 April 2001
I first bought this book when I was a naive, horny sexually uneducated teenager. It was (and in my humble opinion, still is) the best book I could ever have read in order to fill in the many blanks in my eductation.
This book runs the sexual gamut from A to Z, filling in the curious on everything from basic social biology, complexhuman interactions, and advice on - gasp! - SEX, and LOVE as well, surprising as it may sound. One note which gets sounded throughout the book is that while sex might be good, very good, great, or reiligiously toe-curling in the orgasm department, it gets even better, and deeper, in the context of a loving relationship. Speaking from personal experience, I can concur that fulfilling sex and love combined are two of the best things in the world - all I need to do is find them again!
Despite having been written many, many years ago, The Joy Of Sex remains as fresh and relevant today as it did when it was first published all those years ago. The sheer universality of this fantastic volume stands out wherever you happen to dipinto it to read, as I still do, although recent reprints have added relevant information in the recent light of HIV and AIDS. The message remains the same, however. That good sex, done safely and consensually, with a loving partner will enhance your life and your love life equally - a goal well worth striving for!
What are you waiting for? Go and buy this book! It's the best book on love and sex I have ever read- what better recommendation can I give?
