The Joy of Sex: The Ultimate Revised Edition

Famous for helping couples discover how sex can be playful, erotic, passionate, exhilarating, and most of all, pleasurable.

The Joy of Sex revolutionized how we experience our sexuality. An international bestseller since it was first published in 1972, Dr. Alex Comfort’s classic work dared to celebrate the joy of human physical intimacy with such authority and candor that a whole generation felt empowered to enjoy sex. Now fully updated, revised, and reillustrated, The Joy of Sex once again sets the standard as the world’s most trusted sex manual.

Substantial revisions from sex expert and relationship psychologist Susan Quilliam include new information on:

• Key scientific discoveries in the fields of psychology, physiology, and sexology
• The Internet and couple-friendly pornography
• The importance of sex to our growth as people and partners
• Maintaining a fulfilling sex life as we get older

Above all, The Joy of Sex emphasizes the importance of happy and healthy sexuality in our lives.

    I owned a copy the original version of “The Joy of Sex.” It worked fine for me then. Recently I moved and found the box I had packed it in had broken open. The only book missing was my original 1972 version. Explain that as you will.

    I replaced it with “The Joy of Sex: The Ultimate Revised Edition.” What an eye-opener in more ways than one: New pictures, actual photographs in addition to the drawings; new language and new topics — not discussed and indeed not thought of in the original; and this time it includes my female perspective, not just his.

    Joy Then has become more enlightening, more usable, and more fun in Joy Now.

    This is something that your library should not be missing. Updated graphics from the previous editions are welcome touches and are a very healthy aid to keep your love life alive; even when things seem like they can’t get any better in that department!

    If things are stale or non-existent, this must-have reference will be a welcome revitalization in any relationship, new or old.

    Sex is Timeless, January 17, 2009

    I read the first Joy of Sex illegally. I was only twelve and very curious. At a usually romp around the library where I hung out to read romance novels I stumbled into an unmanned resource room and found the book. I found a corner and in five hours I was schooled between the pages in what would be a life changing experience.

    I distinctly remember the pictures of women with leg and arm hair and men with back hair. The majority of the pictures of people were all in one race. Yet I looked past all that and read the words that filled my head with knowledge about something my parents or friends knew nothing about.

    At that time, I remember, the book didn’t mention much about safe sex. I think there was just a little about it there compared to this version where it’s not only spoken about for a while but often mentioned throughout the book.

    Things have changed and the new Joy of Sex is wonderful.

    The new Joy of Sex (revised by a woman – thank the lawd!) brings sex into the twenty-first century the way it should be. With women becoming equaller (I know that’s not a word) out the bed, we still crave that take me, thrill me, please me. But we also love that take charge.

    We want it all.

    I was pleased by the new illustrations and photos, plus the detailed descriptions. This book would make a wonderful anniversary gift and a great new nuptial gift for all couples.
