Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Charlie Glickman, PhD, Education Program Manager, Good Vibrations
“One of the smartest sex guides I've read. Debby Herbenick has a gift for explaining sexuality--using science, personal experiences, her background as an educator, and the many stories her clients have shared with her. The entire book is full of helpful information, useful suggestions, and the supportive advice that most of us wish we'd heard earlier. No matter how much you know about sex, there are lots of great ideas in this book. Plus, Herbenick addresses the most common (and lots of uncommon) questions in every chapter, with compassion and clarity.”

Logan Levkoff, PhD., author of How to Get Your Wife to Have Sex with You
“Even though sex is such a big part of our lives, it sometimes feels like we'll never get it right. Too many concerns and insecurities; too many mixed messages. Kiss those thoughts goodbye. This is really Sex Made Easy . . .and Debby Herbenick tackles our most intimate and embarrassing questions with dignity and tremendous expertise.” 

Vanessa Schick, PhD, co-author of Read My Lips: A Complete Guide to the Vagina and Vulva
"With the warmth of a best girlfriend and the knowledge of one of the most acclaimed experts in the field, Dr. Herbenick breaks down everything you would ever want to know about sex in ways that are smart, sensitive and superbly fun.!"
 
Jaclyn Fulwood, blogger, Infinite Reads
"For any woman who wishes someone would hand her an owner's manual for her sex life, Sex Made Easy, Debby Herbenick's straightforward collection of answers to 100 common sexual questions, is a must-have. Herbenick is a sex researcher, educator and columnist and no newcomer to awkward queries--she also answers questions on the Kinsey Institute's website Kinsey Confidential…Although Herbenick writes with a female audience in mind, readers of both genders will benefit from her knowledge. For better sexual understanding and satisfaction, pick up this classy yet candid read."
