Straight talk for men … and the women who love them

When it comes to the health of their sex organs, even educated, intelligent men become embarrassed and irrational, preferring to ignore a problem in the hope that it will go away and seeking medical advice only as a last resort. Private Parts boldly cuts through the superstition, popular misconception, and general ignorance to provide a reassuring, no-nonsense guide to this area of vital concern to all men.

Dr. Yosh Taguchi, a prominent Montreal urologist, sets out in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner how the male sex organs function, what is considered normal, and what should be checked out by a doctor. Prostate trouble, erectile dysfunction, infertility, cancer, sexually transmitted diseases, vasectomies, and artificial insemination are some of the common concerns and health issues discussed. Taguchi also dispels myths about sexual performance and male menopause.

In this new, expanded edition Dr. Taguchi also discusses the latest developments in the treatment of the prostate and updates information on drugs for erectile dysfunction.
