Plenty of books on sex suggest that it has to be done in a certain way, or in a certain kind of relationship, or with certain people. This isn’t that kind of book.

A Practical Guide to Sex is a truly practical, friendly guide through the confusing, and sometimes alarming, world of sex and sexuality. Its radical approach puts your experience at the heart of the book, and invites you to explore what might be enjoyable to you.

With the authors’ engaging and thoughtful style, the book challenges the messages we receive about ‘normal’ sex, looks at how to understand and care for yourself, delves into ideas of pleasure for different bodies, ages and tastes, explores relationships, and tackles the tricky topics of communication and consent.

So, throw out the rule book and learn to listen to your own desires. This may just be the most helpful book about sex ever.

Reviews:

'Aims to provide the kind of practical sex advice you'd never find in Cosmo.'
—Frankie Mullin

'An inclusive guide to "doing it", whatever your body type or sexuality … Shines a light on bodies and our relationships with ourselves and others, while plugging the gap in sex education to include non-heterosexual relationships by moving beyond PIV, or penis-in-vagina, sex.'
—Independent
