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.

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.
Perhaps my expectations were too high, but while I did find some of it amusing, I didn't laugh out loud throughout the entire book. Not even a chuckle. I didn't learn anything new at all, either. I have to say, all in all, while it is a decent, well-rounded sex manual, that it's nothing really special.
