I never understood why you need a manual for these things

I was at a party at a friend of a friend's house once when someone discovered that their copy had notes written in it -- "very satisfactory", "did NOT enjoy this one", "better on the left", etc. Much hilarity ensued (and red faces).

"There is apparently much more about pleasing women in the book—the female orgasm wasn’t discovered until 1998, after all".

i think cuntilingus was covered in the original.

I believe it was discovered in 1979.

Oh man, I learned so much from those hairy hippies. I would have been... 9 when I first found a copy?

Soon to be pulled from the shelves in a library near you.

Wow, if Irena @4 is correct, then I am a pioneer! I found it way before then (unless, as I suspect, she was lying).

Didn't they have an updated version in 1993? Because I know the version I've seen didn't have the hairy hippies.

Those hairy hippies look just like today's hairy hipsters.

Those hairy hippies were hot then, and they're hot now. A pox on the cult of depilatory wax!

Man oh man, when I was little I thought all sex was that hairy. Thanks Joy of Sex, for haunting my to-be sex life until I discovered the joy of shaving!

Lord knows there was room for improvement.

I returned the copy I bought in 1998 because in the section, "By her, for him," the female voice ACTUALLY SAID that she got off more on pleasing him than being pleased herself. Hello?!?!? I bought the damn book to give to my (now ex) boyfriend because I WASN'T HAVING ANY FUCKING ORGASMS! The! Very! Last! Thing! He! Needed! To! Read! Was! That! I! Didn't! Need! To! Come!

Grrr...damn dirty hippies.

To quote a college friend: "Women have orgasms?"

Fnarf, if I were going to lie about my age, I'd make myself younger than that!
