The first-ever look at the FBI's porn collection (the Obscene Reference File), complete with reproduced documents FAA reports about people having sex on commercial flights-the so-called "mile-high club" A look at brilliant, kinky, and scarce sex-zines, such as Frighten the Horses, Taste of Latex, Future Sex, and Pucker Up, as well as Sexology, published by Hugo Gernsback, the father of science fiction The forgotten sex books of Charles Atlas ("Hey, quit kicking sand in our faces, you bully!")
This massive, oversized anthology features a panoply of sexperts, everyone from prostitutes to professors, legends to newcomers, sexual revolutionaries to sexologists and beyond, providing a varied and unexpected look at sex, challenging our notions of what is possible and in turn exciting, enervating, frightening, and freaking us out.

Reviews - What do customers think about Everything You Know About Sex Is Wrong: The Disinformation Guide to the Extremes of Human Sexuality (and everything in between)?
You would have a better time reading penthouse forum Nov 22, 2007
What a waste of time!. I thought this book would contain some factual information. ( it gives a fraction of a fraction of true information ) However it is nothing but a bunch of stories written by individuals. ( god only knows if their even authors ) The subjsects are from the pretty norm to the very strange. The author of this book clearly has his own identity as well as mommy and daddy issues. Everything that he writes about clearly belongs being disscussed in therepy sessions. If you like reading about disgusting sexual encounters with people that are clearly disturbed, this ones for you. If you want fact keep searching. Reader beware! don't waste your money or your time.
A Challenging Review to Write Jun 3, 2007
Oh what a hard review to write. I was going to start with the section headings, but that would get the unwelcome attention of the this site word filters. Then I was going to start describing highlights from the anthology but I ran into the same challenge. Then I looked at the other reviews and they were either pressed for time or ran into the same challenges as I did.
So, how about a generic impression - a lame, toned down version of a beautiful, powerful, volume. It's a really good assemblage of the subject matter in first-hand accounts, studies, deviancies and vignettes. It gives the reader insight into the truths behind stereotypes and misconceptions. It gives the reader a glimpse into the minds of the real people who live lives different than the accepted norm. It's a great volume.
I recommend it.

Spectacular Feb 7, 2007
A wonderful collection of stories, and something new to learn almost every chapter. A must read for everyone.
The highs are very high indeed Sep 14, 2006
Like any anthology, it's uneven. You'll love some of the stories, merely like some, and maybe even be indifferent to or hate a few. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll kiss 16 bucks or so goodbye. You'll be entertained, aroused, surprised, and squicked. The batting average is good, you get a LOT of reading for your money, and it covers ground that hasn't been visited by other anthologies of sex writing.
Great, hilarious, and distrurbing all at the same time Feb 1, 2006
This book is amazing. It's a series of shorter stories/articles so you can always tell when something you aren't interested in will stop (instead of having to skim on and trying to find the end of the section). A lot of incredible information, some sweet stories, some funny, some that made me shocked, a great book!
