If You're Looking For Warmth And Compassion About
Your Sexual Worries, You Picked The Wrong Book. . .

Yes, you'll get all your burning and why-is-it-burning questions answered,
but the advice is coming from a son-of-a-bitch with a breathtaking gift
for the gratuitous insult.

In these pages, you'll find medical answers to everything from how you
can ejaculate farther to how you can take--ahem--more cargo on
your loading dock. Alvear answers questions with the compassion of
a caffeine addict out of coffee, lining up a panel of doctors and
psychologists against the wall and beating the truth out of them. The
result is a marriage of impeccably accurate information, politically
incorrect opinion and withering sarcasm.

Because the questions come from gay men all over the country, they're
like a peephole into the anxieties, concerns and worries that gay men
have about sex.

Here's a sampling of what you'll learn:

. . . Only 6% of the population need extra-large condoms.
Get over it.

. . . The average erect penis is 5. I" long and 4.8" around.
Unless you're in a chat room. Then double it.

. . . Kegel exercises will give you harder hard-ons and more
powerful orgasms. But then, so will an 18-year-old.

. . . 50% of men on anti-depressants experience sexual side

And no, having an affair is not considered a side effect you can
blame on medicine.

With buzz-saw wit,
Men Are Pigs, But We Love Bacon
will leave you laughing, howling, and knowing everything you
need to know about sex.

I was debating between this book and another random-questions-and-answers type of book, and this one won out because of the title. Michael Alvear gives some interesting advice, and at least he's ... Read full review

User Review  - Nabeel Khan - Goodreads

Hardly have I seen a writer who puts the straight back into advice on things from relationships to drug use... without the moral undertone that haunts most writers.. I found his humor through the roof.. and that is one reason why even a straight guy enjoyed his insights into the gay community! Read full review
