Has any big subject ever generated so many myths, lies and unfounded claims as sex? The Rough Guide to Sex is the antidote to the cynical hype, noisy boasts and all those embarrassed silences. It tells it how it is _ for men and women, gay and straight from touch and masturbation to sexual positions with accessible 'how to do it' advice. Honest and informative, author James McConnachie gets up close and personal, covering not just body parts, techniques and accessories, but sexual health, attitudes, expectations and beliefs. Amply illustrated, this is a book for the curious, dealing with everything you know and don't know about sex_ and beyond. It unveils the nature of desire, the meaning of fantasy, the science of orgasm _ what works and what doesn_t for both him and her. It tells how scientists and gurus, writers and lovers, perverts and priests have all contributed to the story of sex. Above all, it looks at how sex really figures in people_s lives. Myth-busting, witty, thoughtful, and candid, The Rough Guide to Sex uncovers the facts of life without the fiction.
