Review:

"Sexual satisfaction, sexual safety, and sexual sanity are among life's greatest challenges," says David Reuben, M.D. "The more you know about sex, the more you can enjoy it." No less than 100 million readers learned to enjoy sex more with his original Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* *but Were Afraid to Ask. Now, 30 years later, this classic sex-information book has been updated, reflecting the dramatic changes in medical and psychological understanding of sexuality.

Reuben gives the answer to every sex question you ever wanted to know, and some you wouldn't think to ask. Did you know, for example, that porno stars are not as endowed as they look? Just as the camera adds 10 pounds to the look of a normal person's body weight, it can add a couple of inches to a normal penis. The stars also sometimes use vacuum pumps before--ahem!--big scenes. (We knew you needed to know this.) Reuben explains how to perform the "Three-Headed Turtle," why not to do the "Prince Albert," why Spanish fly is better left to farm animals, and how 20 minutes of aerobic exercise enhances a woman's ability to reach orgasm. His style is friendly and clever--you'll find yourself reading chapter after chapter just for the fun of it. --Joan Price
