I suspect that indignantly asking my asking my mother how exactly she expected me to use the slender teen tampons she bought for me and urinate at the same time prompted the book purchase. Her conservative Lutheran upbringing was overturned by the realization that her daughter had no idea that she didn't pee and menstruate from the same location and the liberal sex education book was procured.
Years later, I find myself reading sexual instruction of an even twistier, and decidedly funnier kind, Our Bodies Our Junk, the new sexual health manual for today. Because, "Good God You're Doing It All Wrong!" Written by Mike Sacks, Scott Jacobson, Todd Levin, Jason Roeder and Ted Travelstead. A book that satires the hand mirror holding Our Bodies Ourselves beautifully.
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.This book is hilarious as hell. Husband and I spent the night giggling and snorting as we read each other passages from it. Screenwriter Buck Henry says, "If you absolutely must buy ONE sexbook this year that is as informative as it is disgusting THIS should be the one. Or not." We just say, "Super fucking funny."
Curious? Excellent. Because I was able to procure two free copies to give away to you!
