9780060924386: The New Joy of Gay Sex

Here is the long-awaited revision of the classic The Joy of Gay Sex,one of the touchstones of emerging gay consciousness. Since its original publication, not only has homosexuality gradually become assimilated into American society, but the gay community has undergone a great transformation as a result of the AIDS epidemic. These changes are reflected in The New Joy of Gay Sex,an essential reference book for every gay man.

Dr. Charles Silverstein, a noted psychologist who has worked with gay men for more than two decades and coauthor of The Joy of Gay Sex,has collaborated with critically acclaimed novelist Felice Picano on this revised edition. Invaluable as a resource, in building self-esteem, and as a coming-out guide for young gay men, The New Joy of Gay Sexupdates all the entries of its predecessor and includes many new ones. The book has three goals: to educate gay men about safe sex and save lives by showing the varieties of sexual behavior still available; to address the many emotional and relationship-oriented issues that arise in gay life, such as long-term couples, one-night stands, loneliness, and growing older; and to serve as a general home reference on a number of diverse topics, from living wills to a short history of condoms.

With eight color paintings and fifty line drawings by noted illustrators Deni Ponty and Ron Fowler, The New Joy of Gay Sexis a necessary addition to every gay man's bookshelf.

About the Author:

Charles Silverstein is a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist who practices in New York City.

From Publishers Weekly:

As the authors suggest in their introduction, some readers, gay and straight, will be offended by this book's nonjudgmental, even accepting attitude toward "the kinkier aspects of erotic life." These activities include sex with animals, sadomasochism and "intergenerational love affairs" such as the relationship between an 11-year-old boy and a 21-year-old man. These repugnant sections of this revised edition of a 1977 guide to male/male relationships mar an otherwise useful volume, with new and updated entries reflecting the AIDS crisis, safe-sex practices and the upsurge of gay political activism. An uninhibited, no-holds-barred sex manual illustrated with 60 explicit line drawings and eight pages of color paintings, the book is also intended as a guide to coming out for closeted gay men. The alphabetically arranged entries conversationally urge readers to delve into psychosocial aspects of gay life and to explore such topics as body image, fidelity, homophobia, jealousy, parents and racism in the gay community. Silverstein, a clinical psychologist, coauthored the original edition with Edmund White. Picano ( The Lure ) is a novelist.
