The (New) Joy of Sex

If you're still using Alex Comfort's 1972 The Joy of Sex as your guide to such topics as "frigidity," having sex on horseback, and "tactful ways to take a woman’s virginity," it's time to update.

British sexologist Susan Quilliam has revised the famous book, putting more focus where you need it most: the clit. In words oddly reminiscent of Obama's "McCain doesn't get it" speech, Quilliam says Comfort gave short shrift to the all-important bit of female anatomy "not because he was anti-clitoris, but because he just didn’t know." Also included now are sections on Internet porn, vulvar care, and a technique called the "Venus butterfly." [NY Times]
