9781560233763: Sex Terror: Erotic Misadventures in Pop Culture

This book will change the way you think about sex. It may even put you off it altogether.
In his full-frontal follow-up to his widely acclaimed It's a Queer World, Mark Simpson dispenses with the monkey business of sexuality and gets to grips with the organ grinder itself: SEX.
Subjecting our saucy new god to his sacrilegious satire, Simpson sins against every contemporary commandment about doing the nasty: It must be hot. It must be frequent. It must wake the neighbours. And it must be Who You Are.
Simpson argues that we all put far too much faith in sex these days, and that in actual fact sex is messy, confusing, frustrating, and ultimately disappointing.Especially if you're having it with him.
Along the way he gets worked up with Alexis Arquette over Stephen Baldwin's bubble-butt, gets intimate with Dana International, Aiden Shaw and Bruce LaBruce, and - very gingerly - confronts Henry Rollins with those 'gay' rumours.

From the Inside Flap:

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR 'SEX TERROR'

"BRILLIANT. . . . This book is certain to provoke and likely to offend; we would expect nothing less from one of the most important voyeurs of contemporary man-sex-life. Exhaustive and exhilarating . . . a must-read for those who long, for those who belong, and for those who like it wrong." - Bob Mould, Musician, Songwriter(Hüsker Dü, Sugar)

"Simpson's essays produce rancour and hilarious laughter, disbelief and delight. Some call him wonderful, and some call him outrageous, but I call him a true original and you shouldn't miss this book." - Bruce Benderson, author of Pretending to Say No and User "When the culture of sex finally breathes its last Simpson will be there to deliver the eulogy with great zeal. And what a gloriously sardonic and insightful farewell it will be!" - Glenn Belverio, US editor Dutch magazine. "Mark Simpson is a skinhead Oscar Wilde, his bon mots are both alarming and amusing, getting up people's noses and inside their trousers with equal aplomb." - Philip Hensher, author of The Mulberry Empire
