Master anthologizer Russ Kick has immersed himself in the many and varied worlds of sex writing, producing a definitive collection exposing reality that’s way, way stranger than XXX fiction. Profiled in The New York Times as an “information archaeologist,” Russ digs where others would not think to look for delicious details on the present, past, and future of sex, including:
The first-ever look at the FBI’s porn collection (the Obscene Reference File), complete with reproduced documentsFAA 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 fictionThe 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.
