From Publishers Weekly
UCLA psychology professor and sex authority Abramson (Romance in the Ivory Tower) offers six tenets for a healthy attitude towards sexuality in this well-written but unsurprising treatise. Though the book clocks in at a slim 160 pages, it feels much longer, as Abramson covers well-trod territory regarding sexual harassment, preventing childhood sexual abuse, the perils of sexually-transmitted diseases, and causes for marital happiness and discord. It also doesn't help that his six principles-do no harm, celebrate sex, be careful, know yourself, speak up and speak out, and throw no stones-can, admittedly, be boiled down to three: know thyself, respect others, and enjoy the ride. Abramson's arguments for honesty in relationships and the value of self-knowledge are unassailable, and backed up with occasionally absorbing anecdotes (for instance, a brief look at masculinity in the Sambia tribe of New Guinea), but anyone interested enough to purchase this classroom lecture in book form probably won't learn anything new.

Review

"Sex Appeal is the beginning of a conversation that has been a long time coming. How can people make safe, ethical choices about sex without sacrificing the fun of it? How can these choices make our lives, and the world, a better place? Paul Abramson explores these questions and more with six key concepts that will help readers to better understand how to prevent sexual harm while safely enjoying all of the benefits sex has to offer. Sex Appeal is provocative and refreshing in its embrace of a kind of sexual freedom that is at once both joyful and thoughtful."--Dr. Ruth Westheimer


"I was quite curous when Sex Appeal: Six Ethical Principles for the Twenty-First Century, a slender volume from Oxford University Press by Paul R. Abramson, a psychology professor at U.C.L.A., crossed my desk. My initial reaction was, Huh, I guess I haven't seen an intellectual (secular) rulebook for sexual conduct (not a how-to bedroom guide) in a while, if I've ever seen one. And I thought, What a great idea. Sex is confusing and our options for edification are both abundant and slight...I do wish that more literature on the subject resembled Abramson's book. It tips the scales...in the right direction."--Reviewed by Macy Halford in The New Yorker: The Book Bench
