Cox is a popular provider of sex advice in Australia. Her how-to is an enthusiastic, slangy, and comprehensive guide primarily for twenty- and thirtysomething heterosexuals. The sections on foreplay, intercourse, oral sex, contraception, and STDs are outstanding, and much of the rest of the book is direct and on target. Unfortunately, Hot Sex is marred by occasional bad editing and sloppiness, notably in a dictionary with grossly inadequate definitions. There are unpredictable shifts in point of view and some incomplete or confusing descriptions of body parts and techniques. Australianisms like STI instead of STD are not translated. A few illustrations and a short bibliography or resource list would also have helped. These shortcomings do not seriously compromise the books value for large collections, but smaller libraries can stick with Sari Lockers Mindblowing Sex in the Real World (HarperPerennial, 1995; Sex Texts Come out of the Closet, LJ 10/1/97, p. 5356.) for the same age group.Martha Cornog, Philadelphia -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.

Excerpt from Hot Sex by Tracey Cox
Anyone can be good in bed. Genital size doesn't matter. Looks don't matter. You don't have to have legs up to your chin, arms like Schwarzenegger, drive a sports car, or be rolling in it to be the best lover your partner's ever had. But you do need a good, working knowledge of your subject. And that's easier said than done.
Nearly everyone talks about sex. We're always boasting about how fabulous so-and-so is in bed and hinting at the real reason why we look so tired at work (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). But it's a rare person who'll confess details or talk specifics. Jane might well confide that Brad gives the best oral sex she's ever had, but she doesn't launch into a lick-by-lick analysis of why -- and I bet you don't ask for one.
That's why we buy sex books -- to find out the nitty-gritty details about things we're too embarrassed to ask friends or lovers. Trouble is, few deliver what we really want to know. Sex manuals tend to gloss over the practical bread-and-butter stuff and, instead, talk in generalities -- like how women need clitoral stimulation and men's butts are a veritable hot spot. Great advice but, if you haven't got the foggiest of what to do with it, useless.
This is where Hot Sex is different. Instead of assuming you know everything, I've assumed you know nothing and have dished up all the gory details in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step format. The only way I could have been more explicit and specific is to be there in the bedroom with you, guiding your hands and whatever else you're using (and, to tell the truth, I'd really rather not).
