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.Written by

First of two anthology, omnibus, segment, portmanteau movies made by Woody Allen. The other being New York Stories (1989). In the latter though, Allen only wrote and directed one vignette, whereas in this movie, Allen worked on all of its segments. See more »
In the "sodomy" segment, the character Stavros Milos hails from Armenia. Stavros Milos is a Greek name. See more »
`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
