Finding sex advice can be tricky. It can be difficult to tell the true from the false. In 2017, the first place most of us go is to Google. Many you may want more in depth information which can be hard to find online. Many people worry about people being able to see that websites that they have looked at even if they clear their search histories.
Books are more in depth and usually cover a number of topics instead of just focusing on one.
There are so many books that people often ask me what is the best sex advice book.
It’s hard for me to choose one, so here are my top 5:
- Enjoy Sex (How, When and If You Want to) A Practical and Inclusive Guide by Meg-John Barker and Justin Hancock Lots of books tell you that sex needs to be done in certain ways, or only in certain types of relationships. This book is an inclusive one. It helps you to learn about yourself and explore what you might enjoy. The exercises are user friendly and make the complicated and confusing world of sex and sexuality easier to fathom.
- The Guide to Getting It On: Unzipped Paul Joannides This edition is not released until 1 February 2017 so if you want to read right away, you’ll have to buy a copy of the original edition (which is massively longer but not necessarily better!). Originally written as a down to earth book to help folks have better sex, it became a sex education guide used in universities. This edition takes it back to it’s original purpose.
- The Good Vibrations Guide to Sex: The Most Complete Sex Manual Ever Written Cathy Winks and Anne Semans Starts at the basics and is designed to teach the reader to give and receive pleasure. Covers a wide variety of topics.
- Ride Em Cowgirl! Sex Position Secrets for Better Bucking Dr Sadie Allison This one helps figure out how to make sex positions work best for you – making orgasm much more likely during intercourse. There is lots of good information presented in a light hearted way.
- Tickle My Tush: Mild to Wild Anal Play Adventures for Everybody Dr Sadie Allison OK, this one is on one area of sex. But anything to do with anal sex is one of the areas where people seek sex advice most often before trying as they are often worried about pain during the act and the possibility of disease. This book has a sense of humour as well as practical instruction taking the embarrassment out of approaching the rear and making it far more likely that it will be a pleasurable experience.
With the exception of book 5, these books are more general in nature. There are a lot of books written on specific types of sex (like BDSM or oral sex for example). You can find my favourites by looking up the particular topic under the Q&A section of my website.
