    Outstanding book and no wonder this is my wedding present of choice. I wrap it up and don’t even enclose a card. The delighted couple don’t need to know who it is in their wedding party whose out there trying to be helpful.

    This work is entertaining, insightful, respectful, snarky, well illustrated. What’s not to like about this book? He’s got a spiritually here that shows sex as special. Yet on almost every page he gets down and nasty in a practical way about the bonk; from the basics to the edgy. I loved the illustrations also as they set a tone that is a bit light-hearted. Heck, edging toward old man status these days, I should be embarrassed to say I learn a good deal I didn’t know before when I read this a couple years back.

    So, hats and pants off to Joannides and his team who worked on this project and who keep working on this tome to keep it current in new editions. I think I’ve bought five copies so far. In my sixties now I still learn some stuff every time I go back to this book. For example, how to coach friends to watch out for dangerous love making positions that can get you hurt if you are a guy.

    Though the author is writing obviously post sexual revolution, I found his work refreshingly more Old Age than New Age; because it has a strong sense of the sacred, the spiritual, even the sacramental on all things touching the Act of Love. I’ve adopted the author’s home faith practice (Eastern Orthodox) in recent years which comes from Very Old School and sex positive Greece; so I’ve no qualms in giving this as a gift to those going for a more traditional church wedding.

    Again, wonderful book. I make sure I have a fresh copy on my shelf at home as a hand off gift to lovers of every age passing through to matrimony. Youngsters and oldsters alike entering a serious relationship that calls for some serious sexual connecting will do well to start in the pages of this book. Job well done Mr. Joannides!

    This review is from: Guide to Getting It On! A Book About the Wonders of Sex (Paperback)

    This new edition (the 7th edition since this book launched in 1996!) is the essential sex manual of our time. Every teenager should have a copy, and most adults would benefit from having this book around as well. This book covers the vast universe of human sexuality with honesty, humor and integrity. Neither too flippant nor too serious, this book hits a sweet spot that allows the reader to absorb a ton of information while having fun and developing a more positive attitude towards sex. Parents, order two copies of this book – one for yourself and one for your teenager. Slip it into their suitcase as they go off to college and be confident that you are contributing to their safety and confidence. And then dive in for essential advice to heat up your own sex life.

    I came across this guide several years ago, and even then was thrilled by the overall tone of the book, as well as the detailed info on subjects one may not even have thought about right away when thinking sex…such as the composition of semen, and why it smells and tastes the way it does.
    Recently, I recommended the book to a friend whose daughter is starting to explore her sexuality…for her…but my friend’s curiosity was awakened as well when the book arrived. The volume must have tripled by now…and I decided to order one for myself now too, to update my own knowledge of sex. This book clearly is for a wide audience, teenagers and adults alike. As an adult, you may be very surprised by all the things you didn’t know about sex…and especially if you have a teenager you want to have “the sex talk” with… you may realize it may be time for you to beef up your own sexuality knowledge before doing so.The book strikes the right conversationalist tone to entertainingly present very important issues.
    I taught sexuality classes on universities a few years back, and consider this book the all around, hands-down, best choice to learn about sex.
