Review: Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sex: But Were Afraid to Ask

User Review  - Randall Frederick - Goodreads

Good book, but now outdated (it was written in 1969). I'm thankful that a book like this can help answer important questions but it is, at best, an introduction for the curious. Read full review
