My last sexual partner was a virgin, and when we were thinking about having sex for the first time, he started asking me questions I didn’t have the answers to. Thankfully, I remembered a friend of mine raved about the older edition of this book, so I got this one for us to read as a couple. He finished it well before me, but we both felt confident going into our first time as a couple (and his first time ever) knowing we were both well-informed, and prepared.

Well, after that I put the book down for a while and only picked it up occasionally. It took me waaaaaaaay to long to get through it all, and I regret not finishing it sooner. It is QUITE dense at nearly 1,200 pages, but I loved ALL of it! It’s packed so full of accessible information; it’s no wonder it’s used as a textbook in college courses.

The beauty of The Guide, and the reason it took me so long to read, is that the chapters are short and digestible. So you don’t have to read several chapters to get an understanding of something, and that makes it very easy to put down for a while, and then return to wherever you want/need. This feature also makes it easy and go back to review individual chapters if you want to brush up on your knowledge or techniques. There are a couple of the more dense chapters, but most chapters can be read in 30 minutes. The “fun” chapters are front and center, while the more serious chapters are further back.

There are excellent illustrations, both of the informative and humorous variety, sprinkled throughout. And there’s a glossary in the back. The Guide does get serious in some parts: what to do after rape/abuse, sexual dysfunction, prostitution history, etc. But overall, the tone is light - emphasizing how sex should be fun and consensual.

My favorite thing is how the author includes relevant resources at the end of nearly every chapter, which means there are resources for nearly every person who picks up this book.

Objective, very open-minded, accepting, and humorous. Recommend for EVERYONE! Young, old, middle-aged, LGBTQ, experienced, inexperienced, and poorly experienced - There’s something for everybody, especially those who may be thinking about having some form of sex for the first time. ( )

Picked this up on a lark from a friend's moving/garage sale. It functions as a textbook on human sexuality with a sense of humor- definitely giving this or more likely an updated version of this to future kids. Chockful of information (and written by a local- author's in Waldport!), but should caveat that the version I read is the 2005 edition. It's mostly alright, but chapters addressing LGBT are definitely dated. ( )

I’ve actually had a copy of The Guide to Getting It On for close to seven years now. It has served as a great resource, reference and just a straight up entertaining read. Unlike a lot of other books about sex this book has a frank, but humorous tone to it. I mean with chapters titles like Nipples, Nipples, Nipples and The Zen of Finger Fucking, you know this book isn’t your standard, stale guide to human sexuality.

Right off the bat with the Alpha Chapter Joannides sets the tone by introducing us to the idea of the Goofy Foot Philosophy “that it doesn’t matter what you’ve got in your pants if there’s nothing in your brain to connect it to.” This tone carries through the entire book. Giving a practical guide to just about every aspect of sex you can think of, from anal sex to family planning and even how to explain sex to kids.

It also features excerpts from Joannides’ weekly column The Naked Truth. One of my favorite one is a letter from a frustrated guy name Randy who had wined and dined a young women, but didn’t get laid. The response to his plea for help began with “You might be confusing romance with prostitution.” I laughed so hard I almost dropped the book.

The book also covers sexual anatomy, delving head long into What’s Inside a Girl? Common myths about women’s sexuality are dispelled and detailed diagrams and explinations of female gentials is laid out alongside beautiful illustrations by the talented Dærick Gröss. Fans of the penis do not despair. The dick gets a spotlight too.

One of my favorite part is the awesomely titled The Zen of Finger Fucking, where an entire chapter is dedicated to digital stimulation. Numerous sources, including interviews from actual women are used to give an informed explanation of “finger fucking” as well as giving tips on how best to bring a woman unbelievable pleasure by using your fingers.

A similar detailed approach is taken with handjobs, oral sex and of course intercourse, or Horizontal Jogging as it is called in the book. There are even chapters on how to masturbate, pick a sex toy, homosexuality, bisexuality and even kink. It even addresses Sex When You’re Horny and Disabled.

The Guide to Getting It On is a great resource for anyone curious about sex. Whether you’re a virgin or an old hat at sex it has something interesting, insightful and down right funny to entertain you. ( )

A comprehensive and easy-to-read book on sexuality. The illustrations are useful and though it is a hefty tome, it is easy to find what you're looking for. ( )

Simply an excellent book - this should be required reading for all young adults - the world would certainly be a happier place.

It is basically an introduction to sexuality - extensive, unbiased, factually correct and nevertheless engaging and funny. Seriously, every boy and girl should have read this by the age of 14. ( )

There are a number of excellent books on sex that are much thinner than this one.
