Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The breathy, you-can-have-it-all tone of this guide to "safe sex" is off-putting, yet its central message on the need to exercise care in this era of AIDS is worth heeding. Its matter-of-fact discussions of such matters as oral sex, self-stimulation and mutual masturbation are unusually detailed. Readers are encouraged to draw up a Sex Plan, master the art of safe-sex negotiation and compile a Sex Bio to discover their own preferences and fetishes. Peters, who writes for Vanity Fair and New York, covers the gamut from sensual massage to showers, flashlights, blow-up dolls and phone sex. It's all a bit exhausting. His basic premisethat sex devoid of contact with bodily fluids can be romantic, hot, ingenious and terrificstretches a point. First serial to Cosmopolitan, Playgirl and New Woman; author tour.

From Library Journal

Peters has written this book to help counteract the "epidemic of fear" created by AIDS. He discusses "safe sex," i.e., "sex that avoids any contact with bodily fluids," in detail and describes how one can have "great sex without risking infection." The information provided is sound and will be useful for persons, both homosexual and heterosexual, who are truly interested in changing their lifestyles. Descriptions of safe sex practices are highlighted with explicit anecdotes and sexual slang. Recommended only for collections that include sexual how-to books. Susan A. McBride, L.R.C., Northeast Texas Community Coll., Mt. Pleasant
