Here's the ultimate guide to life for the millennium, packed with advice on love and sex and everything else you're too embarrassed to talk about--sometimes X-rated, always real --for today's generation, today's relationships, and tomorrow's world. As the hosts of the late-night radio program and MTV sensation LoveLine, straight-talking physician Dr. Drew Pinsky and comedian Adam Carolla have become the duo you depend on for answers to questions about relationships going sour, truly embarrassing sexual problems, the dilemmas of finding the right partners... or dumping the wrong one.
In this first-of-its-kind guide, Dr. Drew gives you answers you can trust. Adam strips off the sugarcoating with wisecracking candor. Worried about masturbation? Virginity? Sexual etiquette? HIV and AIDS? You'll find real advice and more, including. . . the secret guys need to know to understand women sexually. . . how to help a friend who is threatening suicide. . . how to have good sex, maybe even great sex--or at least sex that won't make you pregnant or endanger your health. . . . PLUS Dr. Drew's primer on STDs. . . Adam's rules for who is not allowed to have sex. . . the Gay or Lesbian Aptitude Test. . . sidebars, quizzes, myth busters, and more. . .
It's Beavis and Butthead's version of (huh-huh) sex education in this alleged Survival Guide to Life and Love. Who are Dr. Drew and Adam? Consider them Team Dude from MTV's Loveline show, where they dispense sarcastic and sporadically helpful advice to masses of inquisitive callers-in and listeners. Adam Carolla is supposed to be the funny one (if you like Andrew Dice Clay, you'll love Adam!), and Dr. Drew Pinsky plays the straight man. Very straight, and narrow too, it appears, since the "factual" advice he proffers about women includes the following gems. On vibrators: "a woman who turns away from an emotional connection with a human to go for a mechanical object is somebody who's got some issues." On feelings of homosexuality: "Women particularly will confuse warm, intimate feelings with physical attraction." On women losing their virginity: "It needn't be as big a deal for guys." On three-way sex: it's "unheard of" that such an act be initiated by "a woman who's not abused or who's not a little bit off." There're plenty more where these came from! But for honest, factual, nonsexist advice on matters of sexuality and growing up, steer clear of this boys' locker room round-up and head straight to gURL.com's Deal with It. --Brangien Davis
