The book is packed with accurate information, the latest sex research findings, and written in a hip, lighthearted tone.

--How do I have "good sex?
--What can I do to absolutely blow my partner away?
--What can I do to make sex more erotic and exciting?
--How do I maintain a healthy sex life?
--How does unsafe sex affect my health?
--How do I protect myself?
--How can I have ALL of that -- do ALL of that?

Library Journal Review

This comprehensive guide for younger heterosexual singles packages cautionary details with charming enthusiasm. Fulbright, a doctoral student in international community health with a master's in human sexuality, begins with sexual anatomy, response, and orgasm basics, proceeds to masturbation and fantasy, and follows with a chapter on relationships. Then, temporarily postponing the "good stuff," she segues into STDs, AIDS/HIV, contraception, and safer sex. Eventually come intercourse positions, oral sex, and manual stimulation, plus less common topics: talking dirty, phone sex, interfemoral and gluteal sex, G-spots and multiple orgasms in both sexes, sex toys, and the PC muscle. Two final chapters warn against drugs and alcohol. Also included are informative illustrations and sensuous photos. The book is light on resources, providing mainly web sites and 800 numbers, and sources for research quoted are not given-not a major flaw for this audience. Other, broader manuals appealing to the same group include Sari Locker's The Complete Idiot's Guide to Amazing Sex and Paul Joannides's Guide to Getting It On! Recommended for public libraries with a large singles clientele.-Martha Cornog, Philadelphia (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
