The Bible of Sex

Year after year, decade after decade, when someone asks me what my favorite book on sex is, I answer easily: The Guide To Getting It On by Paul Joannides. It’s the bible of sex, I tell people. It really has everything you will ever need to know about sex.

As the years have gone by though, the book has gotten thicker and thicker. It had to because our sexual vocabulary has gotten more sophisticated and complicated, and because more and more categories and information was needed. It included transgender issues, queer issues, polyamory and porn use. Well, it just became too darn big. And the author decided to cut it down to a more manageable size and put the rest on-line. That means YOU get to be the beneficiary.

Paul Joannides tries adding videos regularly on a wide variety of subjects. (tipped uterus anyone?) Here are two that were recently added, one on the innate differences between men and women and one on “facials”, the term used by porn when a man ejaculates on a woman’s face. Have fun watching them. I know I did. He’s clear, to-the-point, sometimes outrageous, but always fun.
