Press Events
Here are some of the accolades and notices we’ve received from just a few of our satisfied clients and experimental research subjects:

“A spot-on parody of earnest sex guides, Our Bodies, Our Junk is a hilarious and addictive page-turner…Daring to answer such questions as “How Much Masturbation is Too Much Masturbation?” and offering sidebars on “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.”–Publishers Weekly (August, 2010 – starred review)

“Comic Sutra: Funny sex manual reveals our naked truth.” (Listed as the READ THIS choice in the New York Post “sex issue” – 9/26/10)

“The book is an uprorarious take on the sex manual, replete with embarrassing illustrations, shameful confessions, and contortive positions that could be achieved only by a trio of Thai ecdysiasts.”– interview at VanityFair.com

“Parodying self-help classics like The Joy of Sex, this intelligently bawdy book explains every facet of what goes in the bedroom (and locked bathroom). Just not correctly.”
– interview at GQ.com

“With consistent, sharp design that includes orderly tables and minute, quasi-WALL STREET JOURNAL illustrations, OUR BODIES, OUR JUNK has so many laugh-out-loud lines, I had difficulty picking just one to present to you as a taste.”
(review at Bookgasm.com)

“It’s an impressive feat to write a guide like this that contains not one unfunny sentence. But the members that comprise the fictional Association of the Betterment of Sex – have done just that.”
(review at Splitsider.com)

“SEX: Our Bodies, Our Junk is an irreverent (and irresponsible) book on the subject of sexuality. Big fun, in other words.”
The Calgary Herald

“You know how every year (if we’re lucky) a humor book comes out that becomes a must-have? Not a book about comedy, but a book that is itself a work of comedy — like The Onion’s Our Dumb Century or The Daily Show’s America: The Book? The kind of book that somehow penetrates the public consciousness to the point that your dumb uncle gives you a copy for Christmas?

Well, here’s my pick for this year’s entry into that pantheon: Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk.
A Special Thing

“…they take perfectly aimed pokes at human sexuality in a guidebook that is graphic in every sense of the word. Look for pie charts on impotence, a list of masturbation terminology (try Jimmy-ing your Belushi) and a close look at the clitoris. [The authors] have banged out a book as fittingly funny as our junk is.” – Flavorpill NY

“Literotica: Two Books Glorify the Joys and Jokes of XXX.” — TimeOut NY

Mentioned on Los Angeles Magazine’s THE READING LIST for August, 2010.

“The authors of SEX: OUR BODIES, OUR JUNK want to lift you out of the erotic Dark Ages and fill your mind with hot, throbbing knowledge…”
Maxim Magazine (August, 2010)

“Possibly the most irresponsible book written on the subject of sexuality since The Berenstain Bears Host a Key Party.”
–Conan O’Brien

“Finally, someone has managed to find the hilarious flip side to the unspeakable tragedy we all know as ‘human sexuality‘.
— Jon Stewart

“The perfect coffee table book for people with sexually inadequate houseguests.”
— Stephen Colbert

“If I had only read this book when I first started having sex, its wit and wisdom would have changed my life in so many positive ways that I would have become the six foot tall blond I was meant to be much, much sooner.”
— Merrill Markoe,
author of Merrill Markoe’s Guide To Love

“Whether you’re a sexual Einstein (know a lot, never have it), or a sexual Tiger Woods (great golfer, have lots of it), this book will hold tons of embarrassing revelations for you. Quickly buy it and take it home, because right now the bookstore security camera is watching you reading it.”
— Bob Odenkirk,
co-creator and star of “Mr. Show”

“If you absolutely must buy ONE sexbook this year that is as informative as it is disgusting THIS should be the one. Or not.”
— Buck Henry,
screenwriter of The Graduate and To Die For


“Why, this is incredible. I…I’ve never seen anything like it. Jane! Michael! Father! Aunt Sarah! Constable! Little Bill! Arsenio! Cookie! Come quick!!!”
— Robert Smigel , “Saturday TV Funhouse”, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog

“So, so funny. This book disproves the old conventional wisdom that sex is a poor subject for humor.”
–DC Pierson
(Author, The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep And Never Had To)

“A hilarious guide to all things physical. Until the day our souls shed the disgusting meat caskets known as ‘the human form’ Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk will serve as the North star for all things weiner related.”
–Tom Scharpling
(Radio Host, The Best Show on WFMU)

“Our Bodies Our Junk is a thought-provoking, nipple-stiffening celebration of human sexuality! The South Carolina Board of Education will burn it publicly, then secretly fold pages 112-146 into a paper anus and violate it while wearing a wetsuit filed with Vaseline.”
– Dave Willis (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Squidbillies)
