This book is very knowledge about sex especially coming from the year it was written when sex was something that was frowned upon to talk about. It was interesting to compare this book to newer books that have been written about sex.If you love learning about sex this is a good book to read.

Is this book accurate? Is it unbiased? Is it /not/ written in a casual yet dismissively authoritative style that seems to impart to each of its bewilderingly misinformed pearls of wisdom the full backing of modern medical knowledge?

The answer to all of these questions is a resounding "No", or perhaps something even more emphatically negative. If you'd like facts, turn elsewhere. But read 2birds1blog's entries discussing Dr. Reuben's opus and then tell me you don't want this treatise on your bookshelf. I know that's why I just ordered it.

Because it's a old book, it's out dated on some thoughts! It's filled with information that might be easier to share, if you hand over the book to a older teenager/young adult! Everyone needs to read it once in a life time!

Had more wear than I expected. Same one I read as a kid. So, overall I'm happy I found a copy.

Format: Hardcover
I read the original edition straight through at age 12 in the 1970's and felt both better and better informed. Dr. Reuben educates with readable prose, and there's even occasional titillation - as teens we once listened raptly as a buddy read about female orgasm. But looking back from memory these pages seem a bit flawed and naive. Dr. Reuben has a stereotypical (negative) view of gay males, his statement that all (not most) humans desire sex for pleasure seems debatable, and if prostitutes are all lesbians or man haters, why do so many marry? Additionally, Reuben ignores researchers like Kinsey and Masters and Johnson, whose findings were well-known by the time this book arrived.

This book has sold over 100 million copies worldwide, incredible. Some reviewers praise it as panacea, while others bitterly attack the book for the author's take on homosexuals. I'd say the truth lies between; the original is informative but flawed by certain misstatements. Perhaps the updated edition - written after safe sex and cyber porn arrived - is better.
