Now a semi-pubescent male, I'd like to say that sex books are for guys who don't have adequate thrust. Hey, women are like cars -- just stick your dick in and rev her up!
Much to my dismay, I couldn't be further from the truth. After suffering through the quagmires of teenage sex, I have come to the realization that, for both sexes and orientations, sex books can be a boon. Guide to Getting it On!, a 700-plus-page wonder from Paul Joannides, is an irreverent text book of every conceivable angle of sex. While the book comes off as one enormous, hard-to-swallow mass, it's actually a stimulating and mentally arousing read....... Full Story Here
Sexual healer's female touch
Among her male patients, says Ruth Collins, there is little ambiguity about whether treatment has been successful. "Are they able to get an erection suitable for intercourse?" is the only question she has to ask.

Is Sex Necessary?
Fans of abstinence had better be sitting down. "Saving yourself" before the big game, the big business deal, the big hoedown or the big bakeoff may indeed confer some moral benefit. But corporeally it does absolutely zip. There's no evidence it sharpens your competitive edge. The best that modern science can say for sexual abstinence is that it's harmless when practiced in moderation. Having regular and enthusiastic sex, by contrast, confers a host of measurable physiological advantages, be you male or female. (This assumes that you are engaging in sex without contracting a sexually transmitted disease.)....... Full Story Here
