A bestseller since it was first published in 1972, Alex Comfort’s classic work celebrates human physical intimacy with such authority and clarity that a whole generation felt empowered to enjoy sex. It was ground-breaking and unique in the wide range of subjects it discussed and in its reassuring authority and sense of fun. No other book has come close in providing such a wise, witty, uninhibited – sometimes delightfully eccentric – guide to lovemaking. A cultural landmark, the original illustrations are absolutely iconic.
