The first edition of the Joy of Sex considered sex on moving motorbikes. Thirty-six years and 8m copies in 22 languages later, that passage has been excised from the New Joy of Sex. Funless if sensible safety legislation has since made sex on moving motorbikes illegal. Doing it on horseback as mentioned in the edition is also outlawed. So stop that too. More importantly, The New Joy of Sex offers a woman's perspective for the first time.

Published in , when sex was still supposed to take place in the dark and under the sheets, the book thrust itself into public consciousness with all the subtlety of a gigolo at a convention of bishops. It was also stunningly popular, a well-thumbed fixture of bedside tables across America that spent weeks on the New York Times best-seller list. The book has undergone various tweaks and expansions over the years, and six years ago the Hairy Man and his somewhat less hairy female partner were relegated to wherever old hippies go to retire. But now comes a completely revised version of the book, written, for the first time, for women as much as for men. It tackles an array of modern topics unheard of in the s, like Internet pornography, AIDS and Viagra, and features photographs and drawings, when things get too graphic of a suitably buff 21st-century couple.
