Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask) is a book (1969, updated 1999) by U.S. physician David Reuben. It was one of the first sex manuals that entered mainstream culture in the 1960s, and it had a profound effect on sex education and in liberalizing attitudes towards sex. It was the most popular non-fiction book of its era and became part of the Sexual Revolution of modern America.[1]

The book was translated into 54 languages and sold in 52 countries and ultimately reached more than 150 million readers.[citation needed] In 1972 it was parodied by Woody Allen in the comedy film of the same name.
