|Hundreds of books deal with
young womens sexuality. This book is unique in that it is an unabashed
and forthright guide to the sexual concerns of young men. Twenty one-year-old
author Manne Forssberg knows what young men want to know.
Sex for Guys is a book about love, desire, feelings, and sex that is geared towards young men and other curious people. It deals with all those things that guys think about but may be too embarrassed to ask about such as contraception, masturbation, sexually transmitted infections, pornography, homosexuality, and much more. Lighthearted but sensible and informative, the book takes the position that nothing is abnormal. Sex for Guys takes a strong stand in support of womens equality and includes candid quotes from young men and women regarding their experiences of love and sex. This book is a revelation for guys accustomed to the usual sex textbooks and guides.
