I collect sex/sexuality/gender studies books, and have been happy with the information in most of the books I own. I LOVE good vibes' book, except I just finished re-reading it, and at one point, they say that it's super-safe to use two condoms, which is CLEARLY erroneous, as it will increase the likelyhood of both of them breaking due to fiction.
Would it be snobby to write the publisher and inform them of this information? If so, how else would I go about it? Does anyone have suggestions? I just can't fathom how this wonderful guide was publish with this HUGE mistake in it!

No, it really wouldn't. And I can't believe that ended up in there: knowing Anne and Cathy, my guess is, it was an editorial goof that the copyeditor just didn't spot: manuscripts of that size are huge, and unfortunately, some things can sometimes get mixed up in the publishing process, much like a game of telephone.
So, sure: go ahead and contact the publisher via email (there's a very wired little company), which is Cleis Press.
