A facsimile edition of the original illustrated sex guide - rereleased to celebrate the launch of the new Cameron Diaz/Jason Segal/Jack Black movie Sex Tape (Columbia Pictures, September 2014), which features the book.
The original, groundbreaking The Joy of Sex returns in this audio version of the first (1972) edition of the illustrated sex guide.
Featuring 100 tracks covering all the chapters of the original edition.
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 groundbreaking 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.
As featured in the movie Sex Tape.
