#693 The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex by Kristen Schaal and Rich Blomquist

 The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex by Kristen Schaal and Rich Blomquist The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex by Kristen Schaal and Rich Blomquist

Sex is sexy isn’t it? Well, Kristen and Rich are bringing you the ultimate book of sex. They start in the beginning with a brief overview of how creatures used to reproduce asexually. Then they take a look at sex throughout history. Then they move onto subjects such as dating, foreplay, and aids.

This book is supposed to be a funny book about sex. It’s not very gratuitous. It’s more goofy. There are plenty of pictures and comics and short stories to go along with whatever subject Rich and Kristen happen to be talking about.

What I liked

This book wasn’t as funny as I would have liked, but it’s still humorous.

The information, well, a lot of it, that Kristen and Rich put in this book is true. The whole deal about reproducing asexually. Then sex throughout history. Then all the other facts about sex, they’re real. Now, you would think that most people over eighteen might know all these things already. They don’t. So I think this book can serve as a goofy sexual education book, which is really a good way to teach sex ed. Take some of that taboo out of discussing some of these things and then laugh about it. You’ll remember what you learned more so than watching disgusting STD slides, but no joke, STDs can be disgusting and unfortunate.

I liked some of the comics. They made me chuckle silently.

What I didn’t like

I kind of wish it would have been a little less goofy. Less pictures. Less silliness.

Sex is a very interesting subject, not just actually having it is interesting, but learning about it is interesting, and, no, I don’t mean pornography or the Kama Sutra, or what have you. Learning about cultural ideas about sex, sex in regards to history, and how to do it safely are all highly interesting. Some very pivotal parts of history have centered around sex and I think I would have liked to have read a book about that more than this book.

This book was more like The Human Sexual Response by Masters and Johnson, if Masters and Johnson had been stand-up comedians and sexual researchers instead of just sexual researchers.

Overall

This was my sexy review of The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex.

Weigh In

Is sex education best taught on a more familiar and laughing manner, or in a serious manner?

If you wrote a book about sex, how would you approach the subject?
