H
umans have been having sex since time immemorial, and not much
changed as the centuries slid by. Then in the 1960s, the Pill came out,
and the sexual revolution was said to begin. But the past 25 years, which
coincidentally is the period when I first became well known, have seen the
most major advancements. Many more women who couldn’t have orgasms
are now orgasmic. Many older people, particularly men, can have sex into
their 90s. People are talking to each other about their sexual needs, and as a
result, they’re more satisfied with their sex lives. And although we’ve made
progress, more needs to be done.
First of all, millions of young people are just beginning their sexual lives.
They need to be taught what to do and how to do it. Secondly, millions of
adults are still having sex the way cave men and women did in the Stone Age.
For whatever reason, the message that terrific sex is possible hasn’t pene-
trated. Finally, many people are still derailed by sexual myths. So although
the need for this book has lessened since it first came out, especially for the
hundreds of thousands who’ve bought it here and those who purchased it in
the 26 other languages into which it’s been translated, my job of educating
people about good sexual functioning is not yet over.
How people learn about sex has a great deal to do with how well equipped
they are to have sex. So where did most of you learn about sex? You learned a
little bit from your parents and a little bit at school. But because much of this
information was, rightfully, passed on before you were really ready to use it,
it may not have meant all that much to you, and so it didn’t totally sink in.
Later on, if you had another class, you probably felt the need to act blasé, as
if you knew it all, and you may not have bothered to listen.
This Catch-22 makes having good sex difficult — you get the information
before you need it, and you forget what you learned by the time you do need
it. Or you get the facts so confused that they’re not helpful to you.
Our children are the same way. Often, despite our best efforts as parents,
kids are more likely to pay attention to what they hear on the street or in the
locker room or at a sleepover. How much of this information is accurate is
anybody’s guess.
But even though some of this information is true, it leads only to more confu-
sion, because it doesn’t match the sexual myths that are also out there. And
when you’re confused don’t you often end up not paying attention to any-
thing you’ve heard — preferring to trust your instincts?
