Exhaustively researched and fully illustrated, Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk is a must-read for you, your sexual partner(s), and anyone who wishes there was more to sex than thrashing around for a few seconds and begging for forgiveness.
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.

A laugh-out-loud parody of more traditional sex manuals by a combustible mix of writers from "The Daily Show, The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, The Onion," and "Vanity Fair."
