Edward King - Safety in Numbers: Safer Sex and Gay Men - Gay Non-Fiction Books All Books by Edward King - Author of : Safety in Numbers: Safer Sex and Gay Men
Paperback - 288 pages (April 1994) 
Routledge; ISBN: 0415909317

"Gay Sex Guides; Health; Gay men remain the group primarily affected by the AIDS epidemic in most industrialized countries. Although governments and AIDS organizations increasingly stress the dangers of a heterosexual HIV epidemic, it is gay men who are still bearing the brunt of the crisis. 
Safety in Numbers provides a comprehensive overview of safer sex education for gay men. Edward King offers a critical analysis of the systematic downplaying of the involvement of gay men in the HIV epidemic and demonstrates conclusively how those at greatest risk form HIV have become the most neglected. By looking back over the successes of groups such as Gay Men's Health Crisis and ACT UP Safety in Numbers provides an accessible and essential guide to meeting current and future needs in the fight against AIDS."

Robert E. Penn & National Lesbian and Gay Health Association (U.S.) - The Gay Men's Wellness Guide : The National Lesbian and Gay Health Association's Complete Book of Physical, Emotional and Mental Health and Well-Being - Gay Non-Fiction Books All Books by Robert E. Penn and National Lesbian and Gay Health Association (U.S.) - Authors of : The Gay Men's Wellness Guide : The National Lesbian and Gay Health Association's Complete Book of Physical, Emotional and Mental Health and Well-Being
Hardcover - 736 pages (January 1998)
Henry Holt & Company, Inc.; ISBN: 0805047719

"Gay Health; In the past decade gay men have been deluged with books about AIDS, safe sex, and HIV prevention. And while many of these books have been useful, their emphasis on AIDS often precluded discussion of other aspects of physical and mental health. There are many specifically gay male health issues that are never discussed in health books written for the general public, from the pleasures and pitfalls of anal sex to living in a subculture that emphasizes the idealized body to dealing with the homophobia that confronts gay people every day. Robert E. Penn, under the auspices of the National Lesbian and Gay Health Association, has written a complete guide to gay male health that, along with supplying complete information on HIV and AIDS, deals with nutrition, aging, common physical ailments, abuse issues, body building, and sexual health. Penn's style is readable and his medical information is clearly explained and up-to-date. The Gay Men's Wellness Guide is an important addition to the ever-growing literature on AIDS and health issues."

Dwayne Curtis Turner - Risky Sex? - Gay Non-Fiction Books All Books by Dwayne Curtis Turner - Author of : Risky Sex?
Paperback - 208 pages 0 edition (May 15, 1997) 
Columbia Univ Pr; ISBN: 0231105754

"Gay Health Books; Why some gay men find it easier to have safe sex than others is a question faced by educators and researchers. Dwayne C. Turner's Risky Sex profiles seven gay men ages 30 to 44 in an effort to understand the myriad influences that go into making decisions about sexual activity. While Risky Sex offers new, and often controversial insights (Turner believes educators should strive toward the more reasonable goal of risk reduction rather than elimination), the power and strength of the book resides in its author's enormously empathetic and beautifully written descriptions of the complexities and diversity of gay men's lives and experiences."

Daniel Wolfe - Men Like Us : The GMHC Complete Guide to Gay Men's Sexual, Physical, and Emotional Well-Being - Gay Non-Fiction Books All Books by Daniel Wolfe - Author of : Men Like Us : The GMHC Complete Guide to Gay Men's Sexual, Physical, and Emotional Well-Being
Paperback - 656 pages (April 18, 2000)
Ballantine Books (Trd Pap); ISBN: 0345414950

"Gay Health Books; Self Help; Can't find your frenulum? Can't interpret your insurance? Can't name the major herbal remedy for prostate problems? Daniel Wolfe's amazing, enlightening, and physically weighty compendium on gay men's health can usher anyone through the major crises of life--grief, illness, bad hair--and offer sane advice on gay-specific issues, from coming out to harassment to spirituality within mainstream and alternative religions. Readers will expect a great deal of attention to HIV--and won't be disappointed--but may be surprised by the comprehensiveness of the section on recreational drugs, for example, or the attention devoted to the pharmacological treatments of depression. Passages on anal eroticism will help the reader chart new territory. Sections on exercise and nutrition are necessarily less complete. The text is supplemented with charts and sidebars (one of the best lists necessary legal documents for single or coupled men), as well as quotes from hundreds of gay men who were interviewed in person by Gay Men's Health Crisis or who responded to surveys ("My mind said I was walking home, but my body was walking to the sex club"). An essential resource for health care providers, therapists, and educators, Men Like Us also makes for lively casual reading, as in this word on allergies to latex condoms: "Although it sounds like a bad gay joke, don't eat bananas or nuts. They're among the foods, along with papaya and avocado, that can make a latex allergy worse." - Regina Marler (Amazon.com)"
