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.

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.
