Ward is careful to insist he never cheated on any of his wives and claims to have a high moral and family standard. He says he didn't sleep with women without actually talking to them for a while first or taking them to dinner, yet he repeatedly mentions quick acts in the dressing room. One of the most amusing parts of his stories is that with every new detailed story of a woman he is with, they "took each other to new levels and learned more than he ever knew or thought possible"; come on, there's only so many 'new' things you can do. Hypocrasy arises when Ward talks of a steady from Hawaii that was bi-sexual but he was put off by it and ended the relationship because her lifestyle was wrong (conveniently she also had a 'sugar daddy' taking care of her but was willing to give him up if Ward married her). So he can't condone her partnership with another woman but then shortly after gives an entire chapter on how he took on eight prostitutes at the same time.Read more ›
Sure, West and Ward no doubt had plenty of women throw themselves at them at the height of their fame. But Ward a.) evokes sexual interludes with prose worthy of a dimestore porn novel circa 1972, b.) describes incidents so ludicrously flattering to him (how he pleasured 8 girls in one go, gave another girl umpteen orgasms in 40 minutes) that it's really hard not to think he didn't make at least half this stuff up, c.) brags about all his conquests incessantly yet prudishly "blames" West for introducing him to such swinging habits, and d.) demonstrates a passive-aggressive hostility toward West throughout.
Oh, he tries qualifying each little stabbing remark (about West's upstaging, his ego, yes even his penis size--small next to the Boy Wonder's, of course) with some "We were great buddies nonetheless" comment. But the undercurrent of resentment is unmistakable, and it doesn't make Ward look good. (By contrast, West has nothing bad to say about Ward in HIS book, and even bemusedly cops to the slightly humiliating fact that while the network had to find ways to minimize Robin's visible "bulge," no such measure was required for his Batman.)
No doubt West left a lot of dirt out in order to stick to the high road.Read more ›
He does tell us that he got laid a lot. Not as much detail is spent discussing the un-named compainons though as tales as to how large his organ is, and how many orgasms he was able to bring them to on a regular basis.
Funny thing about the book. He never discusses any friends. Upon reading the book it is apparent as to why. It is hard to imagine him having any.

Hummto much chat about all the things on the TV show backstage that isn't all that interesting which is why I haven't got through it yetPublished 2 months ago by sharebear
After 2/3 through with this book I was through. I really wanted to love it but after a while it was just an endless stream nonsense and tedious.Published 7 months ago by Richard D'Ambrosia
Wow! This book is hot! It's no great work of literature, but I enjoyed it. It definitely has some sections that are not for children, including descriptions of Burt Ward and Adam... Read morePublished 21 months ago by Joseph Mares
This book is a not very credible sleazefest. I think a lot of it is pure fantasy. I guess Ward thought that a memoir chock full of sex tales would fly right off the shelves. Read morePublished on January 11, 2014 by cynicalgirl
