As an avid listener to the Guys We F*cked podcast, I was sooooo excited to read this book. So I was beyond pumped when it was given to me by my wonderful niece. All in all, I found that it delivered exactly what I was expecting.
If you don’t listen to the podcast I would highly recommend it, keeping in mind that Corinne and Krystyna are not sexual therapists and they were pushed in a position of sexual experts because of the popularity of their podcast. I say this because some of the content of the book is based on opinion and might not sit well with all listeners and readers. Remembering this, I find them to be thoughtful, inquisitive and unapologetic.
I like the setup of the book, being separated between both authors and it was also helpful to have the little image on each page of who was speaking. I have to admit that I was confused on which voice belonged to which face.
If you are in the U.S this book gives some really great resources for help regarding abortion, sexual assault, and general sexual health. Which is really important. As a Canadian, in Ontario, I didn’t realize the difficulty people face trying to access this sort of help in the US. In Ontario anyways, it is pretty straight forward and openly available.
My Favorite Part: Krystyna’s views on farting and romance. This chapter actually had me laughing out loud...on the street car..like a crazy lady.
Rating out of 10:
I would give this book a solid 8/10. It was fun to read, definitely funny and they did a pretty good job of making some potentially uncomfortable subject matter very approachable. I think I would tell any parent who wants to know what the sexual world is really like “out there” for their kids (and I hope you do, cause it doesn’t go away by ignoring it, and this is an integral part of your job in creating a well adjusted human grown up) to read this book. In fact read it then give it to them, or get a cool aunt to give it to the so they aren’t creeped out or whatever.
So overall, for me personally, this book was a fun read. Nothing life changing, but I talk about sex openly in public with strangers.
I am looking for suggestions on my next book. If you have any please comment!
