A Sexy Goad Time!!! Dec 22, 2007
This book written by Jim Goad in a style similar to Answer Me! divides this book into three portions: One of real information, one of stuff he made up, and the last is a collection of his sexy opitions and personal experiences. Most of this book was written shortly after getting out of jail and moving to Portland, OR, renounced for its skanky underbelly. Goad's writing tone is very funny, smart, and grossly descriptive - which is by the way not the least bit comparable to the rantings of idiots like Larry the Cable Guy. I can't even begin to imagine Goad becoming so blandly mainstream. Though each section has its charms, I found the third section particularly amusing as Goad reveals both his inflating ego (evident in his essays about the beautiful women he beds all the time as well as his impressive "plumbing") and his vulnerable side (evident in his essay about being turned down by a weiner dog). I enjoyed this book, though Answer Me! is better. It should be required reading in health classes nationwide!
Pointless information Oct 13, 2007
This book is basicly a jokebook. If you were looking for real information about sex, you really shouldn't be reading a book by a sociopathic bottom feeder.
Goad's information is often pointless, and is often fiction.A lot of the fiction consists of cheap jokes and toilet bowl humor. There is no interest from Goad as sex as trancendence, or uplifting. Goad is strictly here to titalate and be smarmy.
If you found Andrew Dice Clay and Larry the Cable guy funny, you might enjoy this small minded view on sex.
And If that's what you want, fine.
Definitely Goad's best since Answer ME! May 18, 2007
This excellent compendium de pudenda is a must for anyone with reproductive organs. The Gigantic Book of Sex is more informative and accurate than any sociological text since Eric Hoffer's The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements (Perennial Classics)The True Believer, and funnier than just about any 'comedy' book ever written. Goad's style is of course flawless and exact, which we have come to expect. What I did not expect was the gorgeous 'n' glossy format that the text comes in- it is eye-poppingly wonderful. Goad claims to have done all the layout within, and it is a testament to the development of his aesthetic since Answer ME! came out 15 years ago.
