"Comfort never loses sights of his prime intention: to encourage people to give and receive pleasure. The Joy of Sex has as much to offer 2002 as it had for 1972." Claire Rayner "An improvable classic for anyone who needs to know about sex." Sunday Telegraph "An intelligent sex manual that is serious without being solemn." Desmond Morris "Witty, fanciful and mercifully free of moralizing." TimeAbout the Author:
DR. ALEX COMFORT was one of the world’s leading experts in the field of human sexuality and one of the most versatile authors of the 20th century. He was known throughout the world for his frank and funny writings on love and sex, and was, essentially, the inventor of the modern sex manual. A pioneer in the study of old age, cofounder of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, social commentator, novelist, and poet, he wrote more than 50 books but is best known for The Joy of Sex series. In the course of his distinguished and varied career, Dr. Comfort worked as a head of research on gerontology at University College London, a lecturer at the Department of Psychiatry at Stanford University, and an adjunct professor at the Neuropsychiatric Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles. He was also a member of the Royal Society of Medicine and an associate member of the American Psychiatric Association. He died in March 2000 at the age of 80.
