Review

JOHN HODGMAN, AUTHOR OF THE AREAS OF MY EXPERTISE AND MORE
Of course, I was lucky enough to see Rich and Kristen's famous lovemaking seminar and demonstration LIVE at the TED Conference, and I can assure you, I am 40 percent sexier as a result. But for those of you who cannot afford their $4,000 fee (and the required tarps and opera glasses), this book offers you a rare, essential glimpse into the Schaal/Blomquist method of ADVANCED DOING-IT, and finally a chance at 40 percent sexiness.

JON STEWART, THE DAILY SHOW WITH JON STEWART
Hilarious and now I finally know where sex books come from.

Customer Reviews

Kristen Schaal is at her funniest in this book.
J. Lennon
My biggest problem, however, was the very poorly edited transfer to the Kindle format, which resulted in a large number of typos.
Clark Johnson
This book had me laughing out loud in bed to the extent that I was worried about waking up my wife.

"The Sexy Book Of Sexy Sex" is one of the funniest books on sex I've ever read, and believe me, I'm a pervert so I've read a LOT of them. Schaal and Blomquist have written a book where clams have their own kama sutra, goats dress up like policemen, sex leads to time travel, and the cast of "The Golden Girls" is the subject of erotic fan-fiction. It's hilarious. And incredibly filthy. A wonderful book to share a laugh over with your foul-mouthed granny, dom/sub, or that guy in the trenchcoat sitting on that park bench. It's really, really funny.

The book is simply hilarious. It's loaded with charts, graphs, and illustrations, and the captions for these are some of the funniest things in the book. I love it. The writing is witty and clever and, in case you were wondering, there is actual, useful sex advice in here - often in the form of mocking and ridiculing things that you might think are a good idea, but really aren't.

I would strongly recommend that BEFORE you purchase this book you take it for a trial run! What I mean is flip through the pages and see if the book is for you!

I purchased the book sight unseen because of the media hype. I was disappointed.
The book addresses sex in a number of different ways: facts about sex, funny sex, short stories about sex, illustrations pertaining to sex and the authors are even kind enough to add 'red type' to what they call the really steamy scenes.

The problem... there is not very much that is funny. Then, there is not very much that is SEXY. I did laugh once or twice but that was about it. The authors use sex words over and over and over again until you are sick of them.
The illustrations are simply there... not much to ever get to exited about!

I did find one or two of the short stories both interesting and amusing so it wasn't a complete disaster.

For me it was not worth the money... check it out first BEFORE you buy... I think it would help!

It's got many parts that made me laugh out loud... in bed... literally, that's where I read it. But I probably won't read it again. I enjoyed it, but I feel like it often fell flat. However, this book did however motivate me to finally read my other (factual) sex / science / humor book "Bonk" (and that book was AWESOME).

Format: Hardcover
The cover of this book made me stop in my tracks and then when I realized it was the fabulous Kristen Schaal in the granny bra and tube socks I knew my husband would love it - we're both big fans and he'd def. dig the subject matter ;)

The book is hilarious - super funny, sassy and dare I say, sexy? One of those books where we're constantly calling out to each other, "Did you read this" and "Did you see that." And while NSFW, it's a great book to leave out on your coffee table for (grown-up) parties, will definitely get the conversation going!

And the fact that it was written by a real couple adds a touch of sweetness to the whole thing. I'd love to be a fly on the wall in the Blomquist/Schaal house. No, not in a voyeur kind of way (get your mind out of the gutter) but I'll bet the even the conversations about taking out the trash and making dinner are hilarous.

I'd recommend as a fun gift for a favorite couple with the right sense of humor, or for your and your sweetie to read together to inspire funny sexyttimes.

Open to any page in the Sexy Book of Sexy Sex, and you're pretty much guaranteed to get a laugh. It's witty, graphic and weird, with an infectious openness about all things sexual. Creative with everything from pictures and charts to plays and a sexy "Where's Waldo?", and no shortage of hilarious prose. Very funny. Very much recommend.

The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex provides a hilarious survey by a comedy team, sex practitioners and a real-life couple who explore sex in history, social issues, role playing, jokes, and more. Illustrations and funny surveys consider myths, spoof reality, and provide hours of entertaining reading in this exploration of sexual life and human ironies.

I usually don't laugh out loud while reading, but this book is a constant exception. It's outlandish, but equally hilarious...and the pictures are good to boot!
