With whip-smart prose, reminiscent of Roxane Gay and Meghan Daum, ACTION interweaves Spiegel's own sexual autobiography with loving advice on one-night stands, relationships, and everything in between.

ACTION is a book about sex that people won't feel embarrassed about owning. There are absolutely zero provocatively shaped fruit on the cover, for one. In ACTION, Amy Rose Spiegel exhorts you to trust yourself and be respectful of others--and to have the best possible time doing the things you search for on the Internet, except in reality. The book covers consent, safety, group sex, gender, and the best breakfast to make for a one-night stand.

Spiegel also includes dissections of threesomes, how to pick people up without being a skeezer, celibacy as a display of autonomy, and, of course, how to clean your room in 10 minutes if a devastatingly lovely side-piece is about to stop by. All told, ACTION totally doesn't think it's weird that you want to try that thing together. In fact, ACTION is very into it.

About the Author:

Amy Rose Spiegel is an editor and freelance writ(h)er. Her work has appeared in Rolling Stone, The Guardian, NME, BuzzFeed, Dazed & Confused, The FADER, and many other publications. She came up in New Jersey and currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Review:

"A candid guide to 21st-century sexual politics...[where] Spiegel's gift is being able to write with total inclusivity - for queer, trans, straight, asexual and celibate bodies and desires - without scrimping on specificity."―The Guardian

ACTION is a sex advice book for a new, progressive generation, one whose views on sex are informed by a basic ethos of fluid sexuality, body positivity, and feminist responses to rape culture...ensuring that all that sex is not only safe and consensual, but good."―Slate

"ACTION takes a humorous, kind, and informative bent on humanity's most popular and most confusing activity....[and] is wildly thorough, covering everything."―Milk

"A perfect compendium...Equal parts banging field guide...and revealing post-romantic memoir."―The Rumpus

"Action is a perfect mix of informational guide and personal accounts."―Bitch

"This book should be taught in sex ed classes around the nation and is a treasure."―The Frisky

"Fast-paced and fun and should be required reading in high schools."―Fusion

"Thoughtful, informative and sensitive, writing in a way that invites any reader, regardless of gender identity or sexuality, to take part."―The Huffington Post

"This outrageously funny book interweaves Spiegel's own sexual history with tender advice on one-night stands, relationships, group sex and absolutely everything in between."―ELLE UK

"I've never actually laughed out loud so frequently in any reading experience, nor received such a thorough education in sexing healthily. Even the most literal, practical, graphic advice in this book is imbued with love, and with Amy Rose Spiegel's singular voice."―Tavi Gevinson, Editor-in-Chief, Rookie
