Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk

The Association for the Betterment of Sex, edited by Scott Jacobson et al, Broadway, $18.99 paper (256p) ISBN 9780307592163
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.
