The book focuses on nearly every known type of sexually-related topic - from sex toys like vibrators and dildos, to adventurous sex on the interstate, to kinky foreplay.

A look at bathroom culture

Female tag team efforts befuddle clueless lads

Happy Groundhog's Day everyone, or Valentine's Day, or whatever. Unlike some people, I'm hoping to avoid getting stabbed in the backside by Cupid's arrow today, because the last time it happened, it left a nasty rash.
