This book is exactly what it says on the tin! It's mostly fantastically humorous but with some informative trivia too. Recommended for those with the ability to laugh at society's obsession and who don't take it all too seriously!

Funny AND Sexy (but mostly funny) 5 Aug 2010
By EKalan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"The Sexy Book Of Sexy Sex" is one of the funniest books on sex I've ever read, and believe me, I'm a pervert so I've read a LOT of them. Schaal and Blomquist have written a book where clams have their own kama sutra, goats dress up like policemen, sex leads to time travel, and the cast of "The Golden Girls" is the subject of erotic fan-fiction. It's hilarious. And incredibly filthy. A wonderful book to share a laugh over with your foul-mouthed granny, dom/sub, or that guy in the trenchcoat sitting on that park bench. It's really, really funny.

Funny and smart 6 Aug 2010
By Justin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The book is simply hilarious. It's loaded with charts, graphs, and illustrations, and the captions for these are some of the funniest things in the book. I love it. The writing is witty and clever and, in case you were wondering, there is actual, useful sex advice in here - often in the form of mocking and ridiculing things that you might think are a good idea, but really aren't.

Fun, Funny and.... Sexy! 27 Aug 2010
By Lara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The cover of this book made me stop in my tracks and then when I realized it was the fabulous Kristen Schaal in the granny bra and tube socks I knew my husband would love it - we're both big fans and he'd def. dig the subject matter ;)

The book is hilarious - super funny, sassy and dare I say, sexy? One of those books where we're constantly calling out to each other, "Did you read this" and "Did you see that." And while NSFW, it's a great book to leave out on your coffee table for (grown-up) parties, will definitely get the conversation going!

And the fact that it was written by a real couple adds a touch of sweetness to the whole thing. I'd love to be a fly on the wall in the Blomquist/Schaal house. No, not in a voyeur kind of way (get your mind out of the gutter) but I'll bet the even the conversations about taking out the trash and making dinner are hilarous.

I'd recommend as a fun gift for a favorite couple with the right sense of humor, or for your and your sweetie to read together to inspire funny sexyttimes.

This chick rocks it! 21 Nov 2014
By Shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Schaal is a GODDESS. A brilliant, talented, sexy goddess. I can't possibly imagine what would possess someone to purchase this book without being slightly familiar with this woman and her humor. I laughed out loud just about every page if not every paragraph. The pictures ALONE make it worth the cost. So here's the deal, if you like Kristen, you're going to like this book. If you have any sense of humor, you'll like this book. If you're a dirty pervert with a sense of humor, YOU'LL LOVE IT. If, however, you only giggle at her jokes because you don't want to look like a moron around your friend that actually do get her, you're gonna hate it. REALLY hate it. So yeah, go buy that latte you wanted and read some soulless book of non-fiction!

Take a peek FIRST 4 Aug 2010
By Erwin Koenig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I would strongly recommend that BEFORE you purchase this book you take it for a trial run! What I mean is flip through the pages and see if the book is for you!

I purchased the book sight unseen because of the media hype. I was disappointed.
The book addresses sex in a number of different ways: facts about sex, funny sex, short stories about sex, illustrations pertaining to sex and the authors are even kind enough to add 'red type' to what they call the really steamy scenes.

The problem... there is not very much that is funny. Then, there is not very much that is SEXY. I did laugh once or twice but that was about it. The authors use sex words over and over and over again until you are sick of them.
The illustrations are simply there... not much to ever get to exited about!

I did find one or two of the short stories both interesting and amusing so it wasn't a complete disaster.

For me it was not worth the money... check it out first BEFORE you buy... I think it would help!
