An informative pop-up book on the erotic arts featuring the world's ten best carnal positions brought vividly to life in full-color, three-dimensional paper tableaux. The perfect tongue-in-cheek gift for Valentine's, Weddings and Birthdays, THE POP-UP BOOK OF SEX is a clever and informative tour of the ten best ways to have sex, plus the reasons and tips behind them. The problem with most sex books is they're too long, or they list too many things a partner needs to do and learn. Now, readers will get that in just 10 quick pops, from the ever-reliable "Missionary" and the Kama Sutra's "Lotus" as well as contemporary favorites conceived for specific effects such as G-spot simulation and problem-solving advantages of each position (for example: big penis, small woman, or small penis, big woman). Adding to the fun are at least 2-3 alternate position-illustrations for each 'pop', special tips, and specifically selected backdrops (which span the world and a variety of sexual settings).

Setting: An airplane bathroom. The stewardess is sitting up on the tiny counter, her legs wrapped around a handsome man's hips. We see both characters, though we don't see all the way to the ground. (i.e., from his knees up, or so.) Pop: When the spread opens, we see a closed airplane door; to the right of the door, in a little pocket, is a small pamphlet (which readers can take out), with sex tips illustrated in the style of airplane emergency cards (see "Extras," below). The reader opens the door-pulling it to the left. As the door opens the red/green "occupied/vacant" sign clicks over to the other position.
