The New Joy of Gay Sexby Charles Silverstein
Synopses & Reviews
Here is the long-awaited revision of the classic The Joy of Gay Sex,one of the touchstones of emerging gay consciousness. Since its original publication, not only has homosexuality gradually become assimilated into American society, but the gay community has undergone a great transformation as a result of the AIDS epidemic. These changes are reflected in The New Joy of Gay Sex,an essential reference book for every gay man.
Dr. Charles Silverstein, a noted psychologist who has worked with gay men for more than two decades and coauthor of The Joy of Gay Sex,has collaborated with critically acclaimed novelist Felice Picano on this revised edition. Invaluable as a resource, in building self-esteem, and as a coming-out guide for young gay men, The New Joy of Gay Sexupdates all the entries of its predecessor and includes many new ones. The book has three goals: to educate gay men about safe sex and save lives by showing the varieties of sexual behavior still available; to address the many emotional and relationship-oriented issues that arise in gay life, such as long-term couples, one-night stands, loneliness, and growing older; and to serve as a general home reference on a number of diverse topics, from living wills to a short history of condoms.
With eight color paintings and fifty line drawings by noted illustrators Deni Ponty and Ron Fowler, The New Joy of Gay Sexis a necessary addition to every gay man's bookshelf.
