Book Review - Anne Hooper's Pocket Sex Guide
Anne Hooper's Pocket Sex Guide
by Anne Hooper
DK Publishing, 1994
Review by Christian Perring, Ph.D.
Apr 7th 2003

This little book is full of tasteful photographic and drawn illustrations of different sexual positions for men and women.  Most of the book concerns intercourse, although there are a few pages devoted to oral sex.  Along with each illustration are some pointers for both partners about how best to do it, and explanations of the benefits and difficulties of the positions.  There’s very little in the book dealing with the psychological aspects of sex, but there are a few pages on preventing sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy.  It is a book that might be fun for couples to browse through, but it’s unlikely to be of any help to people experiencing sexual difficulties.
