Petersen's "Advisor" column in Playboy is a welcome relief from the magazine's pompous pontificating about the philosophy of sex. This collection of letters and answers is explicit, casual and often clever. To a man whose woman friend kept a box of lewd photographs of herself and her previous lover, Petersen suggested, "Borrow a trick from Sherlock Holmes: Place a smoke bomb under your bed and see what she tries to save—you or the box."
