The Deviant's Pocket Guide to the Outlandish Sexual Desires Barely Contained in Your Subconscious


The Deviant's Pocket Guide to the Outlandish Sexual Desires Barely Contained in Your Subconscious Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Uncover the details of the sexual desires your conscious mind is too ashamed to admit to.

So you like animals. Everyone likes animals. But if you really, really like animals—or clowns, or trees, or dressing up in a fur suit before you enter the bedroom—hen this book is for you. The Deviants Pocket Guide is an unerringly witty and surprisingly comprehensive pocket encyclopedia of the absurd and hilarious fantasies we indulge in the bedroom. As DiClaudio puts it, “human sexuality is a lovely and complex flower,” and this book is a colorful testament to that. In its pages, you will find clowns, balloons, hot rods, shoes, and a curio cabinets worth of other unlikely sexual objects.

Each of the forty illustrated encyclopedia entries is broken down into relevant sections, including a narrative fantasy typical of the fetish, the speculated psychological origins, and a few other factoids to complete the picture. The Deviants Pocket Guide is a look into our collective medicine cabinets: clever, devious, and surprisingly thorough—a handbook of our best-kept secrets, difficult to put down and impossible to ignore.
