About the Book

For a new century and a new generation of readers comes a fully revised and expanded edition of a classic guide to gay sex, love, and life. Featuring 50 new illustrations.

One of the touchstones of the emerging gay consciousness when it was first published in the 70’s, and a standard reference for gay men throughout the 80’s and 90’s, The Joy of Gay Sex has informed countless men about the ins and outs of gay life, love, and pleasure. A full decade has now passed since the last update, and while the gay community has seen improved treatments for AIDS, more positive media coverage, new forums for the expression of community, and more favorable laws, there continues to be an urgent need for this book’s brand of positive and responsible advice.

Invaluable not only as a sex guide but as a resource on building self-esteem, and a coming out guide for young gay men, The Joy of Gay Sex addresses the many emotional and relationship-oriented issues in gay life, from long-term couples and one-night stands, to loneliness and growing older. It also serves as a general reference on a number of diverse topics, including living wills and insurance.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“The new edition is sure to continue its reputation as the comprehensive reference for gay men. At 25 years old, it’s still here. And where, just asking, is Anita Bryant?” - Hartford Courant

“The ABCs of gay male sexuality get neatly presented here in an encyclopedic format with a savvy, knowledgeable attitude… a needed title.” - Publishers Weekly

Would that we all had a wiser, older brother in real life, but until then, The Joy of Gay Sex remains. It’s still the next best thing, whether you browse the entries or read it straight through. - Gay City News
