Sex and cars have been inextricably linked for years - it must be something to do with the pistons - so what more logical than a sex manual from Haynes? Along the same lines as the successful Man and Baby manuals, Sexual Health offers down-to-earth advice (but no step-by-step photos) on the health and recreational aspects of this popular pastime. Dr. Ian Banks style' is as robust and realistic as usual, with his experience as medical adviser to The Good Sex Guide Late on television turned to good account. Following the tried and tested Haynes formula, there are detailed explanations of how the relevant parts of the male and female bodies work and fit together, what happens if they don't, and what can be done to put things right.
Since Haynes Publishing was founded in 1960, approximately 150 million Haynes Manuals have sold throughout the world, over 1 million in the UK last year alone. There are around 300 UK car manuals in print at present with 130 plus UK motorcycle manual titles - not to mention equivalent ranges in the USA, France and Sweden. Actually writing a car manual takes 20 to 30 man-weeks. Authors work in pairs, which shortens the origination time and avoids them going crazy in the middle of long projects. We buy a car at the beginning of the project and sell it at the end - either to staff or on the open market. The workshop phase lasts approximately 4 weeks, although we usually keep the car until the manual is about to print in case of last-minute queries. From the start of a project to the publication of the manual usually takes between three and six months. Motorcycle manuals take about two-thirds as long.
