Seven segments related to one another only in that they all purport to be based on sections of the book by David Reuben. The segments range from "Do Aphrodisiacs Work?" in which a court jester gives an aphrodisiac to the Queen and is, in the end, beheaded to "What Happens During Ejaculation?" in which we watch 'control central' during a successful seduction.

The "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask" title, which is, at its full length, with thirteen words, is the longest ever title for a Woody Allen feature film. It's still the longest too when one counts its shorter eight word version "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex". Allen's second longest feature film title is You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010). See more »
Possibly deliberate error by filmmaker. At the very end of the "What's My Perversion" segment. See more »
I'm not getting shot out of that thing. What if he's masturbating? I'm liable to end up on the ceiling.

`Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex' is a landmark, and of course a great exercise in comedy. Dividing the movie in 7 different segments (with some not including himself in the leading role) was the best Woody Allen could do, and this movie works better than his previous attempt (Bananas) and his posterior `Sleeper'.
In a way, it's less ambitious and targets all audiences. All short films are hilarious, in a crescent order. My favorite is the last, which satirizes the humanly body functions during intercourse. A must see, for all generations of movie likers. Rate: 5/5
