         Launching my candid, explicit, funny and surprisingly practical 1986 erotic classic “Delicious Sex” in a 25th Anniversary Edition as an Ebook last week reminded me of different times. I had been so sure this playful 1986 guide with menus, recipes and sexual fantasy chits to cut out and pass around would be a best seller, like my 1976 novel, “Blue Skies, No Candy.” I was boldly sharing the seduction insights I’d gathered in a decade of being single and grownup in the golden age between the pill and the plague. I thought I was inspiringly inclusive and amusing too, in chapters like “Feeling Good in Your Bedroom,” “60 Ways to Turn Him/Her On,” “Verbal Foreplay,” “Fork Play,” “Floor Play,” “Ford Play,” “Fur Play” and “Fjord Play.”


         Try some verbal foreplay to see what I mean. Say these in a slow, insinuating voice – Lauren Bacall or Eartha Kitt would be perfect.

         But by the time Delicious Sex came to print, AIDS was threatening to go full-blown in the heterosexual population. Cautiously, my publisher wrapped the book in pink and pearls. The ads looked like a pitch for hair-growth tonic. True, self-documented sexual adventurers like Craig Claiborne of The NYTimes called it “one of the most amusing, serious and outrageously humorous books on the subject of sex I’ve ever read.” Still I felt it never really had its chance.

        Now Delicious Sex is back for just $4.99 a download on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, with the original illustrations by Dave Calver and a delightful new cover by Diane Velletri. In this cool new era when both men and women come to bed in t-shirts with their notebooks and cell phones, “Delicious Sex” seems more needed than ever. And it’s never been more delicious.
