9780307592163: Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk

 
GOOD GOD—YOU’RE DOING IT ALL WRONG . . .
 
The Association for the Betterment of Sex (A.B.S.) presents Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk, a radical and invaluable resource for improving your sexual communication—whether you have been in a committed relationship for years, or have just moments ago removed the shrinkwrap from your new Japanese body pillow. 
 
Here are just a few sensual revelations you’ll find within these pages:
 
-    The precise location of the female G-spot (latitude and longitude)
-    “Going on tour with Midnight Oil” and more outmoded masturbation slang
-    Forced perspective and other techniques for visually enhancing the size of your member
-    The Top Five pastry-related euphemisms for female genitalia
-    How to score big at your next swingers’ party, with our crowd-pleasing ambrosia-salad recipe
-    Listings of “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” dry-cleaning services, for freshening up your vinyl fetishwear or adult-sized Tigger costume
-    Your first threesome, and how the ancient Mayans predicted it wouldn’t go over so hot
 
Exhaustively researched and fully illustrated, Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk is a must-read for you, your sexual partner(s), and anyone who wishes there was more to sex than thrashing around for a few seconds and begging for forgiveness.

Review:

Guest Reviewer: Mary Roach

Mary Roach is a popular science writer and is the author of the books Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife, Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex, and Packing for Mars.

As the author of Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex—available in paperback, CD audiobook, cassette audiobook, eBook, cortical implant, and semaphore—I feel the need to correct certain misleading passages in Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk.

1. Page 56: The stages of The Human Sexual Response Cycle (Revised). Stage 24, "Lingering Trauma," should follow Stage 25, "Quick Snooze," not precede it. Stage 22, "Disentanglement from Drift Net" may occur sporadically throughout the cycle. Duh.

2. In the discussion of "Creative Grips for the Advanced Onanist," the authors have included several potentially harmful techniques. I do not wish to be alarmist, but the "Clashing Rocks" technique has, to date, landed sixteen men in US emergency rooms and merited mention in the "Good Golly" column of Morbidity and Mortality Monthly.

3. Page 175. "Plugging Your Penis with Witch Hazel" does not prevent pregnancy. There is no known excuse for the existence of Witch Hazel.

Otherwise, all facts are correct and scientifically excellent.
