5.0 out of 5 stars Come on it is Dr. Ruth, what more do you need to know! Feb. 1 2007
By Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent, down to eath, reasonable, rational, intelligent. You can't go wrong. Great resource for parents and older teens alike. Yep, purchased it to make sure I was giving my teen accurate info and had no problem giving him the book to read on his own. I highly recommend it. Easy and enjoyable to read. Good advice on teaching kids as well as anything else you might want to know.

2.0 out of 5 stars Basic Information June 18 2012
By Alright - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought the book would provide me information that wouldn't be common sense. It mostly talks about biology and the fundamentals without giving insight on how to take it to the next level (i.e. sex positions, tricks, secrets). I would suggest browsing through it before purchasing to see if you'll actually learn something new because I didn't.

1.0 out of 5 stars You have got to be JOKING?! March 28 2012
By Katharina Nordh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
So this book was released in 2006?

Who the *bleep* is it aimed at?

I've read it now and the author has told me mindblowing wisdoms such as "young males like porn, young females do not" - "there is no such thing as friends with benefits, one part is Always unhappily in love and you also risk diseases" - "men are afraid of commitment" - "abortion is Wrong" - "shaving your genitalia is preferrable to not doing so, and is not a matter of personal preference and choice at all" - "women want to marry fantasy-ideas" - "men like kinky sex, women almost never do" and several more fantastic and outrageous ideas in the same school.

I would not buy this for my daughter because I do not want her to KEEP living in the pathetic ideal-woman-mould of the 50's where a woman Needs a man to at all survive - I would not buy this for my son, because I do not want to spoon-feed him the idea that he is Supposed to be the driving force, shower women with gifts and attention as if they were prostitutes and always, always be horny, be Manly and NEVER dare have a night where he just doesn't feel like having sex, cause, hey, that's a bit wimpy, no? No!

I, as an adult who feel secure with my own role sexually as well as an individual, was sort of able to giggle at the book and go "oh my, women actually LIVED like this back in the 1950's-1960's? MEN lived like this? This is so oppressive to Both genders that it makes me want to scream!" and I feel good about how far we've gotten since then - until I looked at the publishing year.

I would not let someone who is stuck in that age in time educate my young-adult child on their sexual future.
The writer was possible groundbreaking and a wonder of outspokenness in her youth - but that, and no offense, people can't help how they are raised - WAS actually in the 1950's (she was born 28) - she may have great ideas about sexual techniques, for Dummies, at least - but her ideas and view on gender roles and interaction in adult, not to mention sexual, society are old, rusted and best left in the era where they were possibly useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great review of the basics, additional interesting facts Dec 10 2008
By T. Leung - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Despite the fact that this is a "Dummies" book, it is actually quite detailed and scientific in nature. A good review of basic facts in regards to male & female bodies, esp. for those of us who have been out of sex ed for a while now. Also provides some thoughtful information for "beginners".

It also includes interesting extra facts & information, like sex during pregnancy, sex during menstruation, the importance of prostate & other male/female exams, interesting pros & cons of different positions, etc.

Also, Dr. Ruth's personality comes through in the book, which is generally a good thing. She adds a touch of humor to this book, though at times a bit too quirky...

Overall, a good book for the topic and probably useful for parents wanting to speak to their kids about sex (or if they are too uneasy to give them the talk directly).
