We all have questions about sex that we still haven't found answers to. No matter how much girl-chat or guy-talk we engage in, there are some topics left untouched and questions left unanswered. Now, go behind the doors of bedrooms across the country and read the naked truth about sex and relationships that readers of nationally syndicated sex columnist Isadora Alman have shared over the years. Doing It draws from discussions on Alman's popular web site and from written responses to her column, offering thoughts, experiences, stories, and advice on all topics sexual. Organized by the natural progression of relationships and inclusive of all gender preferences, areas discussed include the singles scene, dating, intercourse, voyeurism, lubricants, libido, STDs, and creative sexual positions.
