What impressed me beyond the humor and the central conceit of the book is that it ultimately acts as small catalog of the wide variety of sexual interests that people have (and illustrates that having one of those interests doesn't negate or lessen any other interest or experience). On top of that, it serves to normalize those feelings, and encourages exploration, experimentation, and the need to be open to new experiences. As Dan Savage would say, it encourages you to be good, giving, and game. It's a testament to Colesberry's talent that he has written a book that does all of that in a charming, funny package.
This book is hilarious. It's exactly what it says it is: a How-To for having sex with Adrian Colesberry - complete with charts & graphs, mathematical formulas and pie charts. A step-by-step guide on sex from this guy's experience & preferences.
You will laugh because it's funny, you'll laugh because it's filthy & in your face (wow, I can't believe he said that!) and you will admire the guy for having the [...]to put it all out there for the world to see. He doesn't hold anything back. Really. Nothing.
Somewhere along the line you will also realize that you just learned something about sex. This book is a very good insight on what and how a man (at least *this* man) thinks about sex and women. And maybe more importantly: what he *isn't* thinking about. Ladies - know that thing that really bothers you about your body/positions/acts/whatever... and how your boyfriend/husband says "it doesn't bother me" but you don't really believe him? Well, it ~really~ doesn't bother him. At least that's what is going through Adrian Colesberry's head.
This guy isn't an egotistical jerk, he's not making himself out to be a god in bed or the Best Ever. He's a regular guy
If you are offended by graphic language then this isn't the book for you: he doesn't mince words, it's right to the point, you will understand very clearly what he is trying to convey. This isn't a book I'm putting up on the bookshelf where my kids could get it.
I'm giving it 5 stars because it is not only funny but I came away with a different outlook on a few things. Plus it's been a week and I'm still talking about the book to everyone!
I seriously loved this book and feel it is a unique masterpiece. It's extremely human and wonderful.
This is one of the funniest, most refreshingly honest books I have ever read! It is not just about "how to make love to adrian colesberry," although it is indeed THAT. It is about how to laugh about a topic most of us aren't honest with ourselves about, much less the literary public.
Get this book. Read it aloud with your friends. We all laughed until we cried.
TIP: Get some sticky notes so you can refer back to key charts and graphs. Really, you'll be glad you did. By the end of the book you'll feel like all his lovers are like old friends and you'll have almost as much knowledge as Adrian himself. But in the beginning it helps to check the data to keep them all straight.
Upon cracking this open, you might think only a man with a huge list of lovers would dare to write such a book. Colesberry, by his count, has had 11 (I would adjust that number, given some information at the end of the book, but I don't want to create a spoiler). So, 11 women, who he breaks down by age, bra size, how he met them and pretty much any other standard you can think of. For, though this is indeed about Colesberry's body, preferences, childhood, emotions, etc., it's just as much about these women's, especially his ex-wife's. He manages to tell the story of his divorce in ways that are humorous, with venom lurking just underneath, and many of the cautionary tales involve her, though others, such as a failed threesome, involve other women. They have names like "The Great One," "The Innocent One," "The Expert" and "The Last One." None of them have invectives or mean names as, well, I'd be wont to do.
Colesberry guides you through pretty much every possible sexual permutation and though this could be clinical, especially in the footnotes we learn about his human foibles, his insecurities that are related to, but not completely about, his penis. That to me is the true genius of this book. We are taught that straight men, overall, have some major likes and dislikes and that for a woman who wants to bed such a man, she should adhere to them.Read more ›
