The State of Today’s Sexual Culture

Best Sex Writing 2012

When I was first approached about reviewing Best Sex Writing 2012 and doing  a give away, I was all, yeah. I have a two year old and a twitter habit and the last actual book I read was when I was pregnant. And really, with the amount of time I have for actual sex these days, the LAST thing I wanted was to be forced to read about a bunch of people who do, get wound up, then return to doing competitive laundry folding. I was assured that this book was different and that I should give it a chance. I figured that if nothing else, you people needed a chance at free smut, so here I am.

Thing is, I really like this book. It is different. It’s not what you think of when you think “Sex Writing” because even as you read that, you are thinking about big cock, rippling muscles and bouncing titties aren’t you. It’s cool. So was I.

Best Sex Writing is closer to The Other Women series then smut. It’s all about sex. All aspects of sex. But it’s about real peoples real sexualities. It’s about what defines them. It talks about things that society doesn’t allow within it’s polite borders.

A man talks about loving Fat Chicks and dispels the misconceptions about dating them.

A man talks about how the line in a childhood poem “snips and snails and puppy dog tails” defined his body image.

(Yes, I do like reading about the men’s point of view.)

But also an escort talks about why she would rather sleep with five  blue collar Johns a day rather then the one mega rich John.

And for the political amongst you, how about a twist in the law where a man lands in jail for 15 years for creating child pronography. Did he do it? Yes. Does he deserve to be in jail for 15 years? I would bet you say no after reading this piece. Even I did and I’m sorta in the camp where child pornographers should be castrated without pain killers and tossed to the wolves.

It is short stories that even I can digest,with my gold fishesque attention span by authors from all walks of life. You can basically set down, open it up and strike something interesting. Shall we give it a try?

The Dynamics of Sexual Acceleration by Chris Sweeney. Scanning quickly while listening to “Mommy! What are you doin!?” … it’s all about premature ejaculation. The Psychology. The bioligy. The chemistry. The companies that profit. The cheesy commercials we all love and enjoy.

Now to open the door and give Carlo the Car many kisses and try to convince Monkey that he too could have alone time in the bathroom if ONLY he would poop in the toilet.

So on to the giveaway!  I am pleased to say that not only will the winner receive Best Sex Writing 2012, they will also receive copies of Women in Lust and Obsessed. Two top rated bedtime books for grownups. I simply do not have the attention span to keep track of extra votes for being my friend on facebook, or following me on Twitter, or sending me pictures of your boobs (although you are MORE then welcome to) so I’m going with a simple Pick A Number between 1 and 100 format.

So leave a comment with your lucky number. Don’t forget to fill in your email address so I have a way to contact you!

The winning number has been selected and will be announced in a post that is set to auto publish at 9am PST friday the 9th. That’s not much time so Get On It!

    Hahaha! Wonderful. I can empathise. My 2 year old is not in the room right now but I am expecting an arrival of unco-ordinated noise with a sprinkling of bodily fluids any time three … two … one

    Number 2 for kicks.

    This is hilarious! Are we supposed to read the other numbers first? Mine was 13 but it’s taken! Well shit, put me down for 24, for no other reason that it’s a nice, even number. <3 I personally think the "show me ALL THE TITS" entries would have been funner!!!

      I would’ve lost though…

      • Angie
        March 5, 2012 at 11:31 am

        Nah, DCG would’ve done something equal opportunity. She’s good like that. Like… “show me ALL THE TOENAILS” except ew. That’s icky. Well, icky to me.

          March 5, 2012 at 11:32 am

    Hrm, I have a lot of numbers I consider lucky or special, but in this case, hrmmm…(crap, I kind of want a between 1 and whatever guideline here)
