"A wold-class sex manual. Whoever you are and however much sexual experience you've had, you will benefit from reading this book. I can't recommend it too highly." Journal of Human Relations
"The most playful and sensitive book I've read on sex -- it's funny, irreverent, intelligent and refreshingly honest." --Adrienne Benedicks/LIBIDO
"You've never read a manual as warm, friendly, liberating, thorough, and potentially sex-life-changing as the Guide to Getting It On! Neither had anyone in our office--which may be why our copies keep disappearing." -- Oprah Magazine
"If you're going to own just one instructional book about sex, this is the one. Funny, hip, and informative, it's packed with advice about what to put where and covers every topic a couple could possibly be curious about." -- Women's Health Magazine--Sex Awards
"In our vast library of sex books, this is by far and away the most human, enlightening and entertaining read of the lot. I'll be recommending it until my keyboard wears out." -- Cosmopolitan Magazine UK
"One of the few books about sex that you actually want to sit down and read." -- Playboy Magazine
From the Author
With the 7th edition, I think The Guide is finally hitting its stride. Sure, there's always room for improvements and changes, but for now, I think it's okay. I hope you--and whatever lucky people you have sex with--enjoy it, almost as much as you enjoy each other.

As I wrote in the intro: Ignorance remains this book's archenemy, the desire to know more about sex, its friend.
Thanks and take care,
Paul, the author
