9780810989023: Worst Laid Plans: When Bad Sex Happens to Good People

“When bad sex happens to good people, there is no recourse like full disclosure,” is the motto of Worst Laid Plans, a collection of forty probably-too-intimate, but shockingly funny, true-life tales of lust gone wrong.  The stories are divided into themed sections including Foreign Affairs (“When bad sex goes abroad”), Self-Help (“Love thyself...but do it carefully”), On the Rebound (“The art of getting back in-and-out-there”), Mob Mentality (People will do things in groups they would never do alone”), and The End of Innocence (“A memorial to virginity”) among others.  The book evolved out of a storytelling event originally staged at Upright Citizen Brigade, the highly influential comedy organization co-founded by Amy Poehler, who along with Janeane Garofalo and SNL’s Casey Wilson, performed at the show that continues today.  Part Vagina Monologues, part car crash, and wholly hilarious, the volume features contributions from shameless actors, comedians, and writers who will shamelessly spread the word via blogs, on-line videos, tweets, on-going WLP performances, film/TV/media contacts, and further sexual conquests.

“[A] hilarious testimonial to the vast array of consequences we face after
having ignored that little voice inside that says: ‘Don’t.’ ‘This isn’t a
good idea.’  ‘Leave now.’”
—Laraine Newman (Saturday Night Live, The Groundlings)

 

“Irrefutable evidence that one should wait until marriage to have sex.”
—Joel McHale (The Soup, Community)

 

“This book will make you laugh, scream, and want to be a lesbian.”
—Whitney Cummings (Chelsea Lately, Comedy Central)

 

“This is the best kind of comedy; that which makes you both laugh and
erect.”
—Rob Corddry (The Daily Show)

Book Description Abrams, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. When bad sex happens to good people, there is no recourse like full disclosure. Worst Laid Plans originally began in Los Angeles in 2007 as a stage show with multiple monologists at Upright Citizens Brigade, the highly influential comedy organization co-founded by Amy Poehler. (Stars like Poehler, Janeane Garofolo, and SNL s Casey Wilson made appearances at later performances.) The show and now the book feature probably-too-intimate, but shockingly funny, true-life tales of sex gone wrong. The stories will be divided into themed sections including: Foreign Affairs ( When bad sex goes abroad ), Self-Help ( Love thyself.but do it carefully ), On the Rebound ( The art of getting back in-and-out there ), Mob Mentality ( People will do things in groups they would never do alone ), Relationsh*t ( Putting the Gruesome back in twosome ) and The End of Innocence ( A memorial to virginity ). Candid and usually unapologetic, the writers of the essays are not victims, but rather the architects of their own humorous misfortune. The book will include 30-50 essays, sexual trivia and statistics and some sidebars. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780810989023
