Love, Lust & Faking It: The Naked Truth about Sex, Lies, and True Romance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Jenny McCarthy returns to her comic roots in this candid, wise, and witty look at women, men, sex, romance, heartbreak, love, and how (not) to fake it.

In Belly Laughs, Jenny McCarthy told you what you could really expect when you're expecting. In Baby Laughs and Life Laughs, she gave you the unfiltered ups and downs of motherhood and marriage. Now, in Love, Lust & Faking It, the inveterate truth teller turns the lights on for a funny, often poignant, and no-holds-barred look at the essence of relationships: love and sex.

Jenny explores the intensity of first love, introducing us to Tony, the boy of her teenage dreams, and Tubby, her dirty, sexy stuffed teddy bear. She takes us on a whirlwind tour of the world of aphrodisiacs and fetishes, explains the importance of playing doctor and other nice and naughty fantasies, and gives thanks for the pleasures of chocolate. And she sets the story straight on STDs, man junk and lady bits, why we really cheat, why women are master manipulators, the virtues of sex with the lights off, the power of a "loving no," the satisfaction of the perfect booty call, and so much more.

Filled with humorous stories about her own out-rageous exploits—from becoming a Playboy Miss October to the pain of getting a discount boob job to meeting Brad Pitt—as well as the lessons she's learned from family, friends, and fans, Love, Lust & Faking It takes on a subject the sex symbol, mother, television star, comedian, and divorcée can be trusted to examine with nothing but unvarnished honesty and earthy humor. Throughout, Jenny reminds us to aim higher, believe in true love, and, most of all, be kind to ourselves. And to have lots of fun and sex—without faking it.

Synopsis:

McCarthy turns the lights on for a funny, often wise, and no-holds-barred look at the essence of relationships: love and sex. This is a topic the sex symbol, mother, television star, comedian, and divorce can be trusted to examine with nothing but unvarnished honesty and outrageous humor.

Synopsis:

"Even though this book is not as funny as mine, you should still buy it." —Chelsea Handler

New York Times bestselling author Jenny McCarthy turns on the lights for a bawdy and hilarious look at women and sex. Returning to her comic roots and the tell-all tone that readers loved in Baby Laughs and Belly Laughs, this exposé from the former Playboy Bunny, MTV star, and prime-time TV sensation is perfect for fans of Sarah Silverman's Bedwetter and Chelsea Handler's Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea. Delivering the perfect mix of poignant insights, laugh-out-loud confessions, and spicy secrets, Love, Lust & Faking It will be an instant favorite…but it may find its way to your nightstand instead of your bookcase.
