Guide to Getting It On! (The Universe's Coolest and Most Informative Book About Sex) - Paul Joannides, Daerick Gross (illustrator)

"If only the Gideons were putting free copies of this book in every nightstand drawer of every motel room in the world!" - Stacy Hellen/CLEAN SHEETS

Although the title may imply a low brow college boy look on the subject of sex, it is actually something quite different. It presents sex as it should be, fun, as well as being very informative for girls and guys, straight and gay alike. Because what's the point of "getting it on" if it isn't fun (besides procreation of course, but even then it should be good)?

Joannides writes in a lighthearted way that is also clear and concise. If you have a sex question, it has the answer, often with some helpful hints on how to make the road to pleasure less of a bumpy ride (or more so if you are so inclined). Joannides also doesn't forget to include the warnings that should accompany any guide to sex. He even included a couple chapters on them, because after all, safe sex is as important as great sex. Teamed with Joannides writing, Gross' illustrations, though often comical, provide great detail when needed, as Gross is very talented in drawing true to life.

This book does not claim to be the be-all end-all totem of sexual information, but it is an incredibly well written book that covers many important areas of pleasure and should be read by anyone who would like to make sex better for their partner as well as themself.
