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 thoughtful and 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. Meg-John Barker, a writer and academic specialising in sex and relationships, and Justin Hancock, a sex educator, team up to challenge the messages we receive about 'normal' sex; look at how to understand and care for yourself; delve into ideas of pleasure for different bodies, ages and tastes; explore relationships; and tackle 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.
