Edit: I've decided to delete my listmania list, but I'll keep this up anyway. Stieg Larsson has some interesting things to say about the sexual struggles some men go through and developed characters that one can learn from. At the same time, things in my personal life have led me to lately have doubts that this shows the possibility of a helpful and mutually appreciative relationship. The same goes for Jane Eyre.

Jane Eyre

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Ovid's story of Salmacis and Hermaphroditus (look at Scarsellino's painting of the pair).

The Art of Seduction (this includes the condensed Ovid story in the Dandy chapter; also relevant is the section on Elvis Presley in the Charismatic chapter).

Leslie A. Marchand's bio of Byron

Grendel by John Gardner

Pippi Longstocking and Kalle Blomquist(translated to Bill Bergson), Master Detective. (If the latter is too expensive, see if any libraries nearby you participate in any interlibrary system or network through which you can request it.)

What You Don't See (2009)

Self-Directed Behavior: Self-Modification for Personal Adjustment
(For anyone who wants to stop looking at porn. It doesn't require you to subscribe to any religious or philosophical beliefs...Something I've found helpful is to have a rule to listen to particular songs in response to temptations (in addition to using a coping card and other ideas)).
(You can find the table of contents here:

Tank Girl (Admittedly the second half is very cheesy and corny, but the first has some very stirring character development.)

The Descent - the character of Holly.

Neon Angel: The Memoir of a Runaway - this has a bit of interesting insights about Joan Jett.
