Talking About Sex takes no-nonsense look at the sexual issues that many people wonder about but are uncomfortable discussing. Based on selected letters from readers of a national magazine, this easy-to-read book contains a wealth of information on a wide variety of sexual topics, including sexual physiology, relationships, problems with sexual functioning, and treatment approaches. Dr. Polonsky's straightforward style and his question-and-answer format allow readers to thumb through and focus only on those topics important to them -- or, alternatively, they may choose to read the book cover to cover. Readers may even find themselves asking, "Why didn't they teach us that in sex education?" This book offers no magical cures; what it does offer, however, is a frank, open discussion of people's sexual lives -- the personal fears, medical and health issues, family considerations, and social dilemmas we all face. Although it is written for adults, Talking About Sex provides parents with factual information they can use as a resource in communicating with their children about sex. The questions posed are real-life. Dr. Polonsky's answers are down-to-earth and reassuring. Throughout the book, he puts a positive emphasis on healthy sexual development.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a terrific book, written in easy, informal language for anyone who has ever wanted to learn more about sexuality. With warmth, acceptance, and wisdom, the author brings considerable clinical expertise to answer the many questions that arise in sexual relationships."-- "Linda S. Austin, M.D., Associate Professor, Medical University of South Carolina, Department of Psychiatry, Charleston, South Carolina"


" "Talking About Sex" has it all: accurate information, readable style, honesty, sympathy for the reader's feelings, insight into the reader's concerns--a sex therapist tucked into a book like a genie in a lamp."-- "Nada L. Stotland, M.D., Department of Psychiatry and Obstetrics/Gynecology, The University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois"


"This is a very useful book. Harvard-trained Dr. Polonsky speaks clearly and directly to the concerns of ordinary people. Talking about sex in an open and honest manner sets a good example for the best way to deal with many of life's 'everyday' problems. Responding to questions varying from the universal 'am I normal?' to the particular and the unique, Dr. Polonsky's answers are refreshingly direct, free of jargon, and immediately helpful."-- "Michael Beldoch, Ph.D., Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Cornell University Medical College, Attending Psychologist, The New York Hospital, New York, New York"
