Reviews - What do customers think about Sex in the South: Unbuckling the Bible Belt?
"Sex in the South" is a fun and informative gift Aug 8, 2008
When our event management company had an opportunity to do a non-traditional Valentine's segment on a local TV station we suggested Suzi Parker's "Sex in the South" as a fun and informative gift. It combines southern charm, humor and intelligent conversation into a book that will truly open your eyes about what goes on behind closed doors and under the covers! The book's jacket design is outstanding and a fun addition to any library. Ms. Parker's adventures in the south make us think of Scarlet O'Hara had she been a girl reporter "unbuckling the Bible belt." -Mandy Shoptaw & Ari Mitchell,founders Little Black Dress Brigade
A Must-Have Aug 6, 2008
Being a Little Rock native, I had heard of 'The Book' from the time it first came out. I recently attended a reading by Ms. Parker and I laughed until I cried at some of the passages. From a man-horse named Trigger to the steamy S&M club, Ms. Parker went there and did that (or at least watched) to find out what's really going on behind closed doors in the prim and proper Deep South.
A fun read Jul 26, 2007
I heard Ms. Parker on a radio talk show and decided to get this book, which I enjoyed. It is a fun and fast read.
Parker journeys around the South detailing sexual practices that are deemed deviant and perverse by some, but are just daily life for others. She details sex toy parties, pony play clubs, chubby chaser communities and "strait" men having same-sex flings. I thought Parker's description of people and their sex lives honest and engaging. I found myself thinking "Wow, I could know these people!" (and perhaps I do without knowing it). And in the end, she's learned something about herself.
The only negative side is the chip on Parker's shoulder. In the introduction, she describes getting in trouble with Southern Bible belters for writing about sex in her newspaper column. This book is a thinly-veiled (and a little caustic) response to this, showing that Southerners aren't quite so squeaky clean as they pretend.
Although descriptive in some places, I didn't find the book in poor taste (with one exception) or pornographic.
Whoo---look under that belt! Feb 25, 2004
Trippy tour through southern sexual taboos - everything from animals (horseplay) to spanking, swimming, and even some sparks. Lots of sparks. And fascinating statistics, too. I loved this interesting survey of what is hiding underneath the covers of the bible-thumped south. Definitely a must read...you might learn your kink isn't so weird after all.

This no review just a note.
I am from Louisiana and by chance picked up the book. Boy, did I ever find myself and some of my friends from the South in this all-inclusive sample of truth focused on the South. If you have been wondering what's been going on behind closed and open doors in the south then stop looking at the faces of those around you and go with Suzi Parker behind the curtain and see for yourself what is simmering there. You will see the South thru Miss Parkers unadulterated eyes and boy, will you enjoy the viewing. She sees thru blunt HUMOR and honest eyes!!!!!
