The Magic of Sexby Miriam Stoppard
Synopses & Reviews
The most satisfying sex is found in stable, long-term relationships. That's the premise of this wise, remarkably thorough manual, directed both to women and men by well-known medical authority Miriam Stoppard. Already an international bestseller, the book uses tasteful drawings and full-color photographs of actual couples to demonstrate positions and techniques, and both the male and female viewpoints on every aspect of lovemaking are revealed. Shrinkwrapped.
Book News Annotation:
The copyright is 1991, but 1992 is shown as the date of the "first American edition." The subtitle is presumptuous and highlights the less valuable, more dubious facet of this jam-packed compendium of information, photos, and advice. Readers will find questionnaires to develop their "sexual profile"; prescriptions for discussion between partners; lots of do's and don't's; descriptions of all sorts of turn- ons, positions, and techniques; advice on physical, psychological, and medical problems; and abundant graphic photos. The tone is overly prescriptive in some areas and may seem too spelled-out to those beyond the novice stage; but who can deny the need for frank information, clearly presented? Most people, particularly adolescents, can learn something from this book, including those things we want to know but are afraid to ask. Published by Dorling Kindersley, Inc., 232 Madison Avenue, NY, NY 10016.
