  • How to Fend Off a Pickup Artist
  • How to Determine If Your Date Is an Axe Murderer
  • How to Have Sex in a Small Space
  • How to Deal with a Cheating Lover
  • How to Remove Difficult Clothing
  • How to Fend Off an Obsessive Ex

?plus a handy appendix of body language, pickup lines, and useful excuses.

Synopsis:

A guide to negotiating the perils of dating offers advice on escaping from a bad date, coping with fashion emergencies, dealing with a drunken date, and ending a relationship, and includes a list of useful excuses and a guide to body language.

Synopsis:

Hands-on and how-to advice on the worst-case dating and sex scenarios, everything from how to escape a dull conversation and how to survive alcohol poisoning to how to fend off an undesired good night kiss or fake (or detect fake) orgasms. Chapters include essential dating and break-up skills, pre-date survival, and instruction on sex and foreplay. Funny and serious at the same time, on the model of the previous WCS books, with bulleted points, boy/girl scout diagrams. Dating & Sex is the first title in a new series of single subject worst-case books, to be followed by Golf (SP02) and College (SP03) guides.

The authors of the best-selling The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook are back—and they've brought a date. Whatever your own dating nightmares are, take it from the professionals, things can get worse. Just in time for Valentine's Day, here are dozens of scenarios covering every phase of the romantic—or not so romantic—turn of events. Learn how to remove stubborn articles of clothing, slip away from a blind date, and get rid of unsightly stains. Discover the secrets of dealing with a bad kisser and of surviving a meeting with your date's parents. Hands-on, step-by-step illustrated instructions help guide you through these and many more perils d'amor. Tasteful and useful, and with an appendix of great pickup lines, breakup lines, and all-purpose excuses, this is the book you need when you wake up next to someone whose name you can't remember.

Brandon Reich, January 20, 2007 (view all comments by Brandon Reich)
What would you do if you woke up in bed with someone you had spent the night having sex with and forgot his or her name? Think you?re doomed? This book has some pretty good ideas about how to get yourself out of that one. Know when to fake a seizure to stop a wedding? If you were having an affair, what would you do to increase your chances of not getting caught?

Answers to these questions along with helpful hints and ideas about your sex and dating life can be found in this little black book. So the next time you hear, ?Is it hot in here, or is it just you?? and you don?t know what to say, you?ll be wishing you had read this book today.
