$40.00

Dr. David Reuben became a surprise bestselling author when Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* was released in 1969. The book was one of the first popular sex manuals ever printed. Readers shamelessly devoured it. Within just a few years, it sold over 100 million copies worldwide, making it one of the bestselling books of the twentieth century. Of course, the titillating subject matter played an outsized role in its success, but critics have also credited Reuben’s direct, question-and-answer format and his forthright style. The book is also thorough, with answers to such vital and wide-ranging questions as “But how long should a penis be?” and “What is a fetish?” and even “What do female homosexuals do with each other?” No doubt it put to rest many a confused and curious mind. The work became the inspiration for the 1972 film of the same name, directed by and starring the pervert Woody Allen.

This first book club edition, first printing is in very good condition. In the original black cloth boards, near-fine with only minor spotting to spine. Text block fine. In the original yellow dust jacket, very good with only closed tears, chipping, and creases.
