"We use the Guide to Getting It On to help our scholars gain a more complete understanding of sexuality and to help them promote the sexual health of their patients and peers."
Perry Tsai, Co-director
American Medical Student Association
Sexual Health Scholars Program (AMSA SHSP)
"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
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.

It could easily be a sex textbook, and if it isn't, it should be.
This is, it should be noted, the unzipped edition, which means it is somewhat shorter and more concise. That doesn't make it bad, it's just not as expansive or in depth as the full version.
That said, I HIGHLY recommend this book to all newbies and young people. I find it much more accessible than "The Joy of Sex," which is the book I read during puberty. The chatty, breezy style replete with jokes and slang makes the topic friendly and comfortable. And honestly, isn't sex better when you're comfortable? The illustrations are kind of hilarious, but aren't truly necessary to the book. The number one thing I like about this book is the interviews and "case study" anecdotes that are included. Reading other people's experiences and preferences has made me much more comfortable about my own experiences and preferences. Even an old fogey like me can learn new things from this book.
My 3 daughters have a copy of an older version that my ex gave without telling me.....so, now I'm over that. The oldest, 22yrs enjoys it and it is an ice breaker to discuss relationships and sexual activity....17yr and 19 yr old see that it is and will be helpful information...they just aren't as comfortable with the topics yet :)
