A revised and updated edition of the book famous for helping couples discover how sex can be playful, erotic, passionate, exhilarating, and most of all, pleasurable.

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

Substantial revisions from sex expert and relationship psychologist Susan Quilliam 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.

This is a book that should be given to every thirteen year old, and should also be studied in school for thirteen to seventeen year olds (repetitively, and tested every year): it would certainly out-perform the "education" that is (supposed to be) got during health class. (It should also be used in conjunction with _Crucial Conversations_ to get the most benefit in relationships.)

This book offered good information on creating a stronger relationship and having a strong physical connection. I think it is a classy book for this sort of topic.
