Good Vibrations Releases the Most Comprehensive, Compassionate, and Inclusive Sex Book Ever! 
Available in print now with ebook version launching October 15th 2015

SAN FRANCISCO, (October 8th, 2015):  We wrote the book! Good Vibrations Staff Sexologist Carol Queen PhD and Author, Editor Shar Rednour have collaborated on a tome that aims to demystify sex and offer enough fun, detailed knowledge to make solo or sociable sex fabulous for just about everyone. Covering everything from sexual identity to relationships, sex through the lifespan to pregnancy and health issues, disability to sex and tech, and tons of information about sexual practices, positions, and of course toys!

THE Sex & Pleasure Book: Good Vibrations Guide to Great Sex for Everyone draws on Good Vibrations’ 38-plus years of diverse and informative customer interactions, plus Staff Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen’s academic training and community experience, to deliver the most informative and empowering sex information book bar none. This book is for people of many identities, experience levels, and interests. Covering sexual changes across the lifespan, the identity spectrum, sexual anatomy, and of course sex toys and products, this ambitious compendium aims to inform and inspire sexual comfort and exploration! Co-Authored and Edited by Shar Rednour.


THE Sex and Pleasure Book will change lives, if you let it. Whether you’re new to sex and looking to learn, seasoned in sex and looking to make things a little sexier, or a parent navigating how to talk to your child or teenager, this book is for you. Good Vibrations has been a leader in making sex better for people of all ages, genders, orientations, and bodies since its doors first opened and it continues to blaze trails with this excellent book. Highly recommended!”

Debby Herbenick PhD, Associate Professor at Indiana University & author of The Coregasm Workout & Sex Made Easy

“It is absolutely no surprise that Good Vibrations would publish the ultimate how-to, why-to, what-to book about sex. For decades, people have relied on them for products, and advice that is dependable, progressive, and above all, human. I plan to recommend this book to many, many patients- the shy ones, the bold ones, and the curious ones. There’s something in here for absolutely everyone.”

— Marty Klein PhD, Sex Therapist and author of Sexual Intelligence: What We Really Want from Sex, and How to Get It

“People have trusted Good Vibrations to bring them quality sex-ed and orgasms for decades, and this book is a reminder why: it’s sex-positive, comprehensive, inclusive, and dedicated to demystifying all the amazing diversity of sex and sexuality. Carol Queen and Shar Rednour are the brilliant, bad ass aunts we all need to teach and advise us. Everyone should own a copy of this book!”

Tristan Taormino, author, sex educator and director of The Expert Guide to Female Orgasms DVD

“This is the one! An inclusive, compassionate, funny, and comprehensive guide to being a human with both a brain and genitals. If everyone, everywhere read this book, we’d probably have world peace.”

Emily Nagoski PhD, Author of Come As You Are: The Surprising New Science of Women’s Sexual Wellbeing
