From the Author:
Why did you write this book?
We were inspired to write the first edition of this book when we worked in the women-owned vibrator store Good Vibrations. Many customers requested a comprehensive, up-to-date sex manual, but we simply couldnt find one that spoke to a diverse audience, addressed a wide variety of sexual activities, and celebrated sex toy use. So we wrote it ourselves. Since its publication in 1994, The Good Vibrations Guide to Sex has sold over 100,000 copies, so we know we're on to something! It is used in health clinics and college sexuality courses, is recommended by sex therapists and medical professionals, and has helped women and men enjoy more satisfying sex lives.
Who is it written for?
Well, as one reviewer puts it, "Its strange but true that your mother, your father, your celibate sister, and the teenage boy who mows your lawn could all benefit from this book." We write for Good Vibrations wide range of customers--gay, straight, bisexual, transgender, young, old, novices, old-timers, singles, partnered, multi-partnered, the physically challenged, and the sexually jaded, to name a few. And we write for the many people who are too shy to enter stores like Good Vibrations. Even those who dont have the slightest interest in sex toys will find enlightening advice and information in The Good Vibrations Guide to Sex, which covers anatomy, desire, sexual technique, communication, and more.
Why have so many reviewers called this sex manual "the best"?
Its the complete guide to a healthy sex life for people of all ages and sexual orientations, written in a friendly, inclusive, and nonjudgmental style. We offer advice, instruction, definitions, anecdotes, and validation for a variety of sexual interests and activities. Were convinced that access to good sex information leads to greater health and happiness, and we hope to provide readers with all the encouragement they need to explore the wide world of sexual pleasure.
