about

This witty reference steps in where time-honored discussions of the birds-and-the-bees typically fall short. Each of the 90-some entries are formally defined and further explained through reflective and ribald definitions, essays, and stories by some of today's most exciting writers. Everything from celibacy to swinging, hand jobs to spooning are tackled by everyone's favorite writers including Daphne Merkin, Charles Kaiser, Erica Jong, Thomas Beller, and Jane Smiley. Learn what Philip Lopate has to say about duration and Pagan Kennedy about the phallus. Ravi Shankar lingers on the quickie while Patty Marx waxes poetic about the vibrator. From sexual relationships (monogamy, one-night stand, ménage a trios) to sexual positions (doggie style, 69), from age-old practices (prostitution) to contemporary twists (internet sex), this alphabetical encyclopedia includes everything you need to know about the language of love and more. A perfect gift designed to supplement any good sex education, Dirty Words will find a warm spot on bookshelves and bed-side tables everywhere.
