9780061242137: The Dictionary of Love

In its more than three hundred pages, The Dictionary of Love gets to the heart of the matter:

To rusticate is to get out of town with one's lover.
A ballabust is a controlling wife or girlfriend.
Bob Hope had the longest Hollywood marriage.
Kinkalicious is your girlfriend in a teddy.
Tahiti is an island where lovers do the 'upa'upa.

From "afterglow" to "zipper," "Ikea" to "Twister," The Dictionary of Love is chockablock with everything you ever wanted to know about love but couldn't find in your Funk & Wagnalls. The book draws from all areas of life: love songs, poems, history, law books, sex manuals, medical and psychology texts, folklore, modern science, cookbooks, classical literature, Internet dating sites, TV shows, and today's slang.

What famous people best define love? According to The Dictionary of Love, they include Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Bill Clinton, Casanova, Lana Turner, Nefertiti, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Don Quixote, Ben & Jerry—even Flipper and Lassie!

Included, too, are charts, graphs, and illustrations, plus a G-spot directional map for women to give their boyfriend or lover. An indispensable tool for anyone who is composing a love sonnet, breaking up over e-mail, writing a romance novel, planning a romantic getaway, or just looking for something juicy to whisper in their lover's ear, The Dictionary of Love is a first-of-its-kind compendium of all things amorous.
