Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Guest Reviewer: Mary Roach

Mary Roach is a popular science writer and is the author of the books Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife, Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex, and Packing for Mars.

As the author of Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex—available in paperback, CD audiobook, cassette audiobook, eBook, cortical implant, and semaphore—I feel the need to correct certain misleading passages in Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk.

1. Page 56: The stages of The Human Sexual Response Cycle (Revised). Stage 24, "Lingering Trauma," should follow Stage 25, "Quick Snooze," not precede it. Stage 22, "Disentanglement from Drift Net" may occur sporadically throughout the cycle. Duh.

2. In the discussion of "Creative Grips for the Advanced Onanist," the authors have included several potentially harmful techniques. I do not wish to be alarmist, but the "Clashing Rocks" technique has, to date, landed sixteen men in US emergency rooms and merited mention in the "Good Golly" column of Morbidity and Mortality Monthly.

3. Page 175. "Plugging Your Penis with Witch Hazel" does not prevent pregnancy. There is no known excuse for the existence of Witch Hazel.

Otherwise, all facts are correct and scientifically excellent.

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. A spot-on parody of earnest sex guides, Our Bodies, Our Junk is a hilarious and addictive page-turner co-written by The Onion staff writer Jason Roeder, Mike Sacks, writer-comedian Ted Travelstead, Daily Show veteran Scott Jacobson, and Todd Levin, who has written for Late Night With Conan O'Brien and Onion News Network. Their fictitious agency offers all manner of improper, inappropriate, and hilarious advice, including helpful pickup lines like "you might recognize me from your window," songs designed to help educate children about sex, such as "Doggy Honks the Horn (The Clitoris Song)," "Five Public Places You Can Masturbate Without Ever Being Detected" (including the pets department at Walmart), and "firsthand accounts of the alleged female ˜orgasm.'" Daring to answer such questions as "How Much Masturbation is Too Much Masturbation?" and offering sidebars on "Swinging: What Your Mailman Is Referring to When He Asks if You Party" and "Gorillas In the Mist: Navigating the Sexual Dynamics of a Health Club Steam Room," the team never miss an opportunity to skewer popular stereotypes and established facts in an acerbic, witty take on a prime subject.

Bought this book as a gift for a friend and they loved it... In fact they're talking about it so much I think I'm going to buy a copy for myself!

Format: Paperback
From time immemorial doing the nasty has been cumbersome. Not just getting some, but the proper, sanctioned, socially acceptable way to do so. Now that the Internets have blown the lid off privacy, as we fumble around with each others zippers, thank heavens the AFBOS has delivered this obviously well-researched tome. Now we have a reputable guide to getting IT, not getting IT, and everything IN BETWEEN. With some stupidly funny and smart tips -- I particularly liked the pick up lines not to use, especially the ones involving Phil Collins albums. This is important and useful stuff. If only Oedipus had been my Facebook friend -- I would have sent him a link to this puppy and, before he was blind (he was the guy who became blind right?) he could have read it and laughed and Dr. Freud would have just kept working on bruises and things would have better for all of us. But we had to wait till now. So. What I'm saying is. I like.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is genuinely funny. If you are offended by sexual content and explicit language, obviously you shouldn't buy it. If, however, you think 'junk' is just plain funny and you're not easily offended this book's for you. There is a decidedly masculine spin on it, but that's part of what makes it amusing; the mysteries of girl 'junk' are still some enigmatic entity, always beyond the grasp of the male mind, addressing the "alleged female 'orgasm'". The book reads like a Sex for Dummies manual, including all aspects of human sexuality and the problems that may arise. It alerts the reader to important symptoms of virginity-loss such as the "new spider-like abilities". One learns the art of 'peacocking,' how to discuss sex at work, and how well a shrimp farm works as
contraception. The anatomical renderings of the male and female...er...areas are reason alone to buy the book, but it's just a gem overall. I'm not doing this book justice. I don't know how anyone can.

If you love random, irreverent absurdity and prefer humor that is politically incorrect and generally offensive to others, buy this book. Not for taking to the office. Keep out of reach of children.

Format: Paperback
Open the cover of Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk and enter a weird, hilarious world, where human sexuality gets the absurd treatment it deserves -- peppered with spot-on pop culture references and humor so sharp you might feel a little guilty even as you're laughing out loud. (For all you raised-Catholics, this guilt response when contemplating sex will probably feel familiar. Comforting.) The authors, a group called the Association for the Betterment of Sex, manage to combine lowbrow and highbrow into something altogether new and different (fauxbrow?). Smart humor for smart people, with great Joy of Sex-ish illustrations (only funny, ungross, and un-reminding you of your parents in the 70s). I'll be buying multiple copies as gifts.

Most of the books I have read lately fall short, this one delivered. I do not want to give anything away and I cannot compare to any of the professional reviews I have read online. I will say this is the funniest book I have read all year and I was constantly laughing out loud. I usually find one solid gift to give away during the holiday season and I found it a little early this year...ENJOY

Format: Paperback
I like comedy and sex. It took a masturbatory stroke of genius to combine the two, and the rewards are plentiful. This book is laugh out loud funny for anyone who's ever had an erection or just aspired to. And the ladies like it too. Just ask my real doll. (After getting my permission).

Did anyone say this book tickles their funny boner yet?

Anyway, by pretending not to be terribly smart or politically correct, this book offers some very sophisticated and hilarious insights into humanity's struggle to navigate the labyrinth of sexuality with as few hurt feelings or fatalities as possible.

Highly recommended.

And my wife often tells me I don't even HAVE a penisbone - THAT'S how funny this book is! I think I can neatly assess this book with the following summation: If you've ever indulged in the joy of giving a Hot Carl, you will love this book. If you've ever indulged in the joy of receiving a Hot Carl, you will love virtually anything.

It's tough to do sexy humor right, but these guys hit the (sorry) g-spot with this funny guide. The awesome cover art doesn't even compare to what's inside: a hilarious how-to, complete with wonderful, instructional diagrams. Thank you to the Association for the Betterment of Sex for all the laughs. Can't wait to see what you guys do next...
