A down-to-earth guide for anyone looking to learn about sex, romance, and attraction.
In the two decades since its initial publication, The Guide to Getting it On has gained a massive, wide-ranging readership. It’s used by more than 50 colleges as a sex education text, is a favorite read by randy teenagers, and has won raves from both Oprah’s magazine and Playboy. Now in its ninth edition, the guide’s been translated into 14 languages.
At more than 500 pages with 51 detailed chapters, the Guide truly offers something for everyone. Author and psychoanalyst Joannides covers straight sex, gay sex, lesbian sex, anal sex, period sex, co-worker sex, and more. He teaches readers to acknowledge and respect the wide variety of sexual difference that exists within the human population, and he promotes a shame-free approach to all-things sexual. His thorough and straightforward take ensures all readers will walk away respecting the idea of sexual exploration.
