Most sex is of the recreational variety, which is just as well or there would be even more people on the planet. Few people will admit to a lack of expertise, but as with driving, there is always scope to improve on the basic technique. And also as with driving, sex is an activity which brings pleasure when skilfully exercised but can be dangerous if the risks are ignored..

As you would expect from Haynes, this manual contains detailed explanations of how the relevant parts work and fit together, what happens if they don't, and what you can do about it. There are answers to questions which you may never have thought of asking - does having sex on an aeroplane make your private parts swell up? - and down-to-earth advice on everything from HRT to S&M.

No previous knowledge is assumed and no qualifications are needed, although a willing partner would be an asset. Besides helping you become a great lover, the manual will enable you to:
  • maintain your tackle in optimum condition
  • prevent corrosion of vital parts
  • understand your partner's desires
  • decide when to call in professional assistance
The writer John Steinbeck famously said that men of his generation knew more about the Model T Ford ignition coil than they did about important parts of the female anatomy. This is the first Haynes manual intended to reverse that position.

As with driving, sex is an activity which brings pleasure when skilfully exercised but the risks shouldn't be ignored. There are up to 25 different sexually transmitted infections (STIs) out there. And one in nine people has had one, which means the chances of picking one up are surprisingly high. Eight STIs have no symptoms and four, while treatable, are still without a cure. This could mean problems under the bonnet such as recurring rashes or warts, lifelong herpes and even permanent infertility. So make sure your next ride's a safe one, don't play the sex lottery, always use a condom!
