  • I have read many many books on sex. They can only show you technique. You learn more about the person by being with that person because each person is different.

  • Reading authentic books help really. I have not only read, still read and maintain a nice collection. None is porn or cheap erotic book.

    • Thanks for MHO.

  • Yes, a lot on techniques.

    My Opinion:

    1) no, it doesn't help much with virgins.

    This is because sex to a virgin is like color to a blind.

    No matter how skillful the author illustrates, there is no way a virgin can understand sex, like explaining say blue to the blind. (I know because I have a friend who is color blind and when I try to explain color on my screen, I realized how big a tasking is.)

    2) to someone experience with sex, yes.

    I gained a lot of understanding about forefore and position and how to communicate from those books.

    It helped the quality of sex between my girlfriend and I.

  • The Karma Sutra for enjoyment purposes. I don't think it helped me in bed at all, just made me in turns curious, horny, and fascinated. That guy truly devoted his life to fucking, and nothing but. I'm sure the original copy is missing pages from them sticking together.

  • No. You need real experience.

  • Yes, I have. It is called "She Comes First: The Thinking Man's Guide to Pleasuring a Woman" by Ian Kerner.
    It a brief manual on cunnilingus and related fingering. I wanted to develop expertise and this is where I found it.

  • Some probably have pretty good things to try out.

  • I haven't found them to.

  • Depends what you mean by help... help what?

  • It could

  • Yes they help. Some books are full of techniques. Some erotica are full of ideas and others are just to enjoy romantic ones

  • some people learn literary while others learn visually

  • Help in what? Understanding sex or you wanna go into its medical details?

  • Yes, I like to do scientific research on sex ritual

  • I don’t need a book to help me with sex

    • That's a close minded statement

  • Yes they do help me get very hard erections and now i have to masturbate.

  • I guess any research you do on a subject would be beneficial

  • I think it can, the more you know the better off you are.

  • I never tried but i am down to do a little reading and then practice what we are reading. Go pick us out a book and lets see what happens... big smile. Hi

  • Never heard about such books TBH.

  • Hell ya it helps, just like an instruction manual
