The ultimate guide to lovemaking
The uninhibited bestseller that has sold more than 8 million copies since its first publication in 1972 is now updated and revised for a new generation. As captivating and provocative as ever, and filled with illustrations, The Joy of Sex sparks the imagination with its playful, erotic, and exhilarating presentation. But most of all, it is the no-nonsense yet fun approach of Dr. Alex Comfort that speaks to anyone seeking to achieve greater sexual satisfaction -- as he contends with every aspect of our sexual territory, including today's most vital issues: AIDS and other venereal diseases, the practice of responsible sex, birth control, Viagra, menopause, and more.
Candid, inviting, and informative, this is the classic guide that's never gone out of style, as decades of readers discover that nothing compares to the joy of sex.
