For Sex with a CoWorker Chapter, an illustration of a business woman and man leaving an elevator, with she slyly reaching behind her and grabbing him in the crotch.

FREE Chapter: Sex with a Co-Worker

When you date someone you meet through work, you know what they look like, how they behave under stress and how they treat others. You’ll know if they have a good sense of humor and if they have a solid work ethic. If they have personality problems, their fellow workers will usually rat them out. These can be luxuries in the age of digital dating when what you see is not necessarily what you get.

People you meet through work will often be geographically desirable, unless they’re in the Omaha office and you’re in Maine. You won’t have to explain your company’s quirks and culture to them, and there’s a good chance you’ll have each other’s backs.

There can also be problems. So think of this chapter as the missing section from your employee handbook—on negotiating the workplace environment when a fellow employees’ legs are wrapped around yours when you are off the clock.

For the Sex during Pregnancy chapter, an illustration of a woman who is pregnant and her partner reaching around her from being and lovingly placing his hands on her belly.

FREE Chapter: Sex during Pregnancy

Some pregnant women will want more intimacy than ever before, while others will want space—sometimes vast amounts of space. This can be confusing for a dad-to-be, as he is never quite sure if the love of his life wants to snuggle or pluck his eyes out. Also, don’t think that the dad-to-be isn’t experiencing his own set of pregnancy-related emotions. These may cause him to hesitate sexually while his child-to-be is turning somersaults half a penis-length away. The mom-to-be might be wanting to rip his clothes off, and he’s suddenly prim and proper.

This chapter is about sex during pregnancy, from orgasm-related uterine contractions to swelling genitals and fetal brain development. For most couples, anything that felt good before conception is perfectly okay after, including oral sex, anal sex, vibrator play and vanilla lovemaking. But no matter what you read in this chapter or anywhere else, please discuss sex during your pregnancy with your healthcare provider. There might be situations where it is prudent to alter some of the more outrageous ways that you and your partner enjoy sex.

Plenty of physicians encourage couples to have sex during pregnancy. Obstetricians rely on people having healthy sex lives in order to keep from going broke. So do pediatricians, gynecologists, Lamaze instructors and everyone else in the healthcare industry. There is no way your physician wants you getting out of practice with intercourse as long as the possibility exists that you might have more kids. So don’t be afraid to ask.

For Kink in the Animal Kingdom, an illustration of two Tyranosaurus Rexes having sex.

FREE Chapter: Kink in the Animal Kingdom

Are humans the only animals who have sex for pleasure in addition to reproduction? Are the other animals limited to having sex for reproduction and dominance only? Is there no kink in the rest of the animal kingdom? Until recently, that’s what the biologists had told us. Fortunately, some biologists have been reconsidering the idea that humans are the only animals who have sex just for the heck of it. So let’s pretend you are a biology professor who wants to study sex in the jungle…

For the chapter Sex & MRIs, an abstract glowing image of a couple kissing.

FREE Chapter: MRIs of Sexual Arousal

MRIs or neuroimaging studies of the brain and crotch are the future of sex research. However, there currently exist serious limitations of brain-imaging technology and human behavior. This chapter will give you an idea of the challenges that researchers have to deal with as they are exploring this virgin territory. Understanding the limitations of current technology is especially important given the media’s penchant for making way too much of findings that are tentative and have yet to be replicated and validated.

When researchers were looking for the parts of the brain that light up during sexual arousal, they discovered that parts of the brain were actually shutting down. This is the opposite from what you would think. Shouldn’t sexual arousal light up the brain, with sparks of activity arc- ing from ear to ear? However, it appears that in order to free ourselves to become fully aroused, we need to shut down parts of our brains. This would validate what women often say who take our sex survey. When asked to describe what intercourse feels like when it’s really good, they often say the rest of the world disappears, for example:

“When it’s really good, I feel like the world just stops and my mind goes blank and all I want to do is feel every single move, and enjoy each breath. But when its bad, I can’t stop thinking about everything other than what is really going on. My mind will be racing.” female age 22

FREE Chapter: Sex in the Military

It’s not like soldiers leave their sex drives in their home towns, but the military does not always provide helpful information about sexuality for new recruits. Since the military does not publish reports on the sexual practices of its members, we have put this information together based on clandestine reports from the field.

For this chapter on birth control, there is a comic illustration of a sperm who has lots of attitude with a "NO" symbol laid over it.

FREE Chapter: Birth Control–Sperm v. Egg

In the United States, 49% of pregnancies in women under the age of 34 are neither planned nor intended. The number rises to 75% for women over 40, and a whopping 80% of teen pregnancies are not wanted. Two-out-of-three unplanned teenage pregnancies happen to girls between the ages of 18 and 20—ages where you’d least expect teenage pregnancies to occur. It seems that using effective birth control is not always the priority it should be.

(While IUDs are far more effective for birth control than condoms, using condoms helps prevent the spread of diseases and is far better than using nothing. To find the brand of condoms that work best for you, here are links to condom sampler packs.)

The most common reason for reading about Sexually Transmitted Infections is when you are worried about having one, or when someone you had sex with a few weeks ago just sent you a text that starts with “BTW…” This chapter on gnarly sex germs (STIs) reads way better than most, and provides you with helpful links when you need to do further research.

Using condoms does help prevent the spread of most sexually transmitted infections. Here are links to different condom sampler packs to help you find the kind of condoms that work best for you.

How To Cure a Noisy Bed

Let’s say you just moved back home with your mom and dad and the last thing you want is for the whole house to know when you’re having sex thanks to a squeaky bed.

This is easier said than done, given how intercourse can turn a bed into a battering ram. The entire bed will sway toward the foot with each out-thrust and toward the head with each in-thrust. So if it’s hitting the wall, try moving the bed away from the wall. If that doesn’t work, stabilize it by cramming pillows or gasket-like material between the headboard and the wall.

For Guys Who Are Uncut: Putting on a Condom

Here’s the best video I’ve ever seen on different ways of putting on a condom for guys who are uncircumcised. They show a method we never see here in the States for men whose foreskins are long or don’t retract.

This video is from a great site in New Zealand that’s for gay guys called Love Your Condom from the Ending HIV group. Hopefully, you won’t have a problem with that if you’re straight. And if you do, sorry mate. While www.Guide2Getting.com is for men and women who have sex with each other, we encourage 100% respect for men who have sex with men and women who have sex with women.

If you’d like to try out different condoms to find the ones that are best for you, see our page full of condom sampler packs.

This site also has the best how-to videos you’ll find on how to have anal sex, which are just as helpful for straight couples as gay couples: How To Have Anal Sex.

A Leading Cause of Infertility in Young Men Is…

One of the leading causes of infertility in young men is athletic injuries. Fortunately, there’s a new generation of cups you can try, in addition to comfortable compression shorts to hold them in place. You probably won’t find the coolest of cups at your local Target, Walmart, or sporting goods store chain, but that shouldn’t stop you. Spend some time on the following websites and find a cup that will work best for you, your sport, and the position you play.

The Spider Guard Cup, designed by an engineer who creates medical equipment. His teenage son was a shortstop who wouldn’t wear cups because they were so uncomfortable. So he studied the physics of testicle injuries and came up with an entirely new concept in cup design.

Shock Doctor’s new AirCore Soft Cup and AirCore Hard Cup are pretty cool, unless you are playing catcher or goalie, in which case you’ll want nothing short of their Titan Alloy Cup.
