    Candid and Informative

    I've just read this book, and it is now on my gift list for all my friends. I especially appreciated the candid and non-judgmental approach to sex. For about five years now I've worked for the CDC and CFAR in sex research because I was so disappointed with the information I found when I was young. I was so impressed by Dr. Spinelli's ability to give facts without demoralizing.
