My first book was a fictionalized version of my experiences with the revolutionary Training and work on the phone lines for San Francisco Sex Information - the odd assembly of folks who volunteer for such a job and the even odder assortment of folks who call in anonymously with their sex and relationship questions. Our original title was Aural Sex & Verbal Intercourse. After many interviews in which I consistently had to spell the first word (perish the thought that a book about sex might suggest a blow job) and correcting those who thought the book was about mystical sex with auras, the publishers retitled the second edition: Sex Information, May I Help You?!
So, reader, I ask you: wherein lay the misstep, with the original title or the second edition?
