You're no dummy when it comes to sex, right? And yet there are sexual partners who don't know how to please themselves or each other, thousands of sexually transmitted diseases spread, and a million unwanted prognancies each year in the U.S.

That's why for more than 20 years, Dr. Ruth K. Westhiemer has traveled the world bringing her message of sexual literacy to millions of people who need informaiton on love, relationships, and sex, but have been too afraid to ask. Now, For Dummies has partnered with world-famous sex maven, Dr. Ruth, to bring you this down-to-earth, educational, and informative guide to sex in the '90s.

Starting with the basics, Dr. Rugh covers it all, from procreation to puberty to courtship and commitment. She gives you no-nonsense tips, advice, techniques, and suggestion for how to find the right partner, how to keep the romance alive, how to enjoy sex well into the golden years, and how to explore your own sexuality. With helpful case studies and icons, Dr. Ruth cuts thorough all the jargon and medical terminology to provide you with clear and concise information in a fun and easy-to-read format.

Inside, you'll discover how to:

  • Talk to kids and teenagers about safer sex
  • Keep the romantic fires burning with gifts, getaways, and more
  • Explore family planning options
  • Discuss the topic of HIV and AIDS with your partner
  • Make foreplay and afterplay a normal part of your lovemaking
  • Avoid catching a sexually transmitted disease
  • Address male and female "problems" like impotency and infertility
  • Maintain an active sex life in the face of medical or physical disabilities
  • Explore sex on-line: fun for you, safety for your kids

Review:

Go ahead and laugh at the title of this book, but admit it--do you know what a cytomegalovirus is, or how to get rid of one? (It's a little-known sexually-transmitted disease, and there's no known cure.) Dr. Ruth Westheimer has written a valuable reference for those who think they know it all--and for those who admit they know nothing. Westheimer covers male and female anatomy, masturbation, birth control, and the ups and downs of orgasms, along with many other very sensitive subjects--such as how to come out when you're married and have children. For parents who are having trouble talking with their teens about sex, this book could break the ice. It's especially worthy reading--for young and old alike--for Westheimer's candid discussions of the often-ignored emotional and psychological aspects of sexuality, from the effects of losing one's virginity to having cybersex to handling premature ejaculation and other sexual problems.

About the Author:

Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer is America's favorite psycho-sexual therapist. She is the author of 18 books, a well-known lecturer, a radio and TV personality, and an adjunct professor at New York University.
