There is plenty of cheerful encouragement on every page of this manual. There is reiteration of important basics: everyone is different, everyone’s desires are different, orgasms solo or with others are terrific, fear and shame are overcome by good information, and so on. This is a superbly encouraging manual, positively overflowing with a sex-positive attitude, motivating education and experimentation. Do not try to tackle the question, “Am I normal?” comes the advice, as if in these times there was a good definition of normal. The questions to ask are, “Do I desire it?” “Do I enjoy it?” and even “Do I have enough information about it to try it in real life?” I thought, given the source, that the book would have lots to say about sex toys. It does; perhaps 150 of its almost five hundred pages are devoted to the use not only of groin gadgets, but such hardware as blindfolds and paddles, plus other things to play with like erotic books and movies. Though there are general descriptions of vibrators, dildos, plugs, and such here, this is not a Good Vibrations catalogue, a fun publication for browsing, perhaps with a partner, and one I recommend.)
There are so many useful sections with surprises here. One answers the vexed question, “What do I wear to the orgy?” The answer includes various subtleties such as, “Unless your sex party friends are vegans, a leather look is generally considered erotic.” There are wonderful pages on how to talk about sex with your kids. A section gives warnings about sexual safety within the shower. Handcuffs might seem perfect for BDSM play, but the authors don’t recommend the real or the toy ones, which can tighten too hard around the wrists; Velcro restraints are safer. The book has lots and lots to say about safe sex and barrier methods, and not a whole lot about contraception. (For basics on this and other general sexual matters, please consult the splendid _The Guide to Getting It On!_ by Paul Joannides, a book that this one includes as recommended reading.) Also, the book needs more illustrations; describing the “Gates of Hell,” for instance, just won’t do; I’d like to see the rings, leathers, and snaps of such a gadget which “looks fantastic, and is sort of a penile bondage,” even though I figure that would be on my personal No List; repressed me. Overall, this is a funny, informative, and joyful book that will embolden, enlighten, and empower readers, and has potential for increasing the world’s happiness.
The book can answer any question you have made yourself about human sexuality, very inclusive, and based in sex positive.
Never mind your sexual orientation or interests, “The Sex & Pleasure Book” has something for you, with an easy reading and nice illustrations that will leave no doubt left to answer.
I recommend it 100%

And the content in this book is super basic only really useful for virgins IMO. It doesn't dwell into any advance topics/details relating to sex.
If your looking for something that will guide you through your progression in your expertise in sex, then this is not the book.
