Publisher Comments:

The Joy of Sex revolutionized how we experience our sexuality. An international bestseller since it was first published in 1972, Dr. Alex Comforts classic work dared to celebrate the joy of human physical intimacy with such authority and clarity that a whole generation felt empowered to enjoy sex. Now fully updated, revised, and masterfully reillustrated , The Joy of Sex once again sets the standard as the worlds most delightful and trusted sex manual.

With more than a hundred pieces of provocative new artwork and full-color photos that capture in frank detail the intimacy of love, this edition of The Joy of Sex is the most visually stunning yet. Dr. Comforts wise and forthright advice has been supplemented by contemporary expertise from sex expert and relationship psychologist Susan Quilliam. Substantial revisions include new information on:

•Key scientific discoveries in the fields of psychology, physiology, and sexology

•The Internet and couple-friendly pornography

•The importance of sex to our growth as people and partners

•Maintaining a fulfilling sex life as we get older

Above all, The Joy of Sex emphasizes the importance of happy and healthy sexuality in our lives. For people who want their lovemaking to be more satisfying, sensual, and erotic, this beautiful new edition will offer all the help and inspiration they need.
