  Hooksexup: The First Ten Years
From the editors of
Way back in the early days of the Internet, challenged the best writers and photographers of the generation to create work that was explicit in both senses of the word: honest and sexy. Now, ten years later, Hooksexup is renowned for its bold and intelligent publishing on sex. This stunning retrospective celebrates Hooksexup's impact on popular culture with its stimulating essays, interviews, fiction, and photography. Encased in an electric vinyl case, the book is provocative all the way through — with seductive photographs and contributions from celebrated writers such as Jonathan Lethem, Chuck Palahniuk and Em & Lo, on topics ranging from monogamy, to hand jobs, to the best (and worst) sex of a lifetime.

  Bad Sex: We Did It So You Don’t Have To
From the editors of
Bad Sex — Everyone's had it. But for some reason very few want to talk about it. Very few, that is, except the writers at They've had some pretty bad sex and they have no problem kissing and telling. The stories in this unprecedented collection feature the most hilarious, heartbreaking, cringe-worthy bad sex. We have chest-waxing gone awry; an unsavory attraction to a Frasier look-alike; hours-long hand jobs; Vienna sausages; and much, much more. The stories are at once frank, outrageous, funny, and intense. What Hooksexup has done here should really be considered a public service — they did it so we wouldn't have to.

  Naughty Crosswords
From the editors of
Naughty Crosswords — These are definitely not your daily paper's crossword puzzles. Conceived by the devious minds at, these 50 puzzles test the old S.Q. (that's sexual quotient). What's a five-letter word for well endowed? In what country is oral sex illegal? Who was the first woman to expose a nipple on TV? Of course, not all the clues in Naughty Crosswords relate to sex. These puzzles test a wide range of knowledge, from geography (63 Across: One of the U.S. Virgin islands) to pop culture (47 Down: Twins who became legal on June 13, 2004) to politics (52 Across: Place where Bill and Hillary started screwing, presumably). Ok, so maybe they're mostly about sex. But that's what makes it so much fun! The Wire-O format makes it handy to write in no matter where you are. With four levels of difficulty and themes ranging from S&M to virginity, Naughty Crosswords revels in the fact that, when it comes to sex, no trivia is too trivial.

  2033: The Future of Misbehavior
From the editors of
What is the future of sex? Some of the brightest minds writing today offer their predictions in this tantalizing anthology. Rick Moody considers the repornification of Times Square, Lisa Gabriele predicts 100 percent divorce rate, Ana Marie Cox sees the return of family values via tabloids, Jay McInerney examines female executive dominance, Walter Kirn discusses Madame President and the First Lady, and much more. With short stories, imaginative e-mail exchanges, mock memoranda, and other clever missives from 2033, the future of misbehavior has never looked so good.

Publishers Weekly raves, "Studded with contemporary lit luminaries like Rick Moody, with a proposal to return Times Square to its former salacious glory, and Jay McInerney, who predicts the rise of the matriarchy in executive culture, these speculative pieces often appear light and funny on the surface, but carry sharp satirical bite and an undercurrent of foreboding. ...Its look at modern excesses and insecurities proves entertaining, thought-provoking and darkly funny."

  Sex Advice From...
Ever wondered if cowboys do it with their boots on? What music a record store clerk plays while going at it? What's really happening up there in the projection booth during the movie? Sex Advice From... bypasses the experts and hits the streets (and the farm, and the runway) for advice on the way we really do it. Featuring perfectly respectable photos of real people with interesting jobs - and even more interesting sex lives - this book collects interviews from more than 200 willing participants. Before sending their brave correspondents into the trenches, the editors at spent weeks locked inside the Hooksexup war room drawing up a comprehensive list of questions about all things sex - dirty talk, home movies, hygiene, foreplay, blowjobs, anal techniques, and threesomes, to name just a few. The correspondents then traveled far and wide in search of novel advice. They spoke to bloggers, tour guides, lifeguards, pool cleaners, sideshow performers, and ex-pats living all over the globe. The result? This chunky paperback chock-full of everything you ever wanted to know about sex but were too afraid to ask the salesman at your local car dealership.

  Position of the Day Playbook: Sex Every Day in Every Way
Yes, yes, YES! It seems that readers do, in fact, want to have sex every day of the year. Picking up where its outrageously successful predecessor, um, got off is Position of the Day Playbook, featuring 366 erotic couplings packed into one chunky, inspiring, and hilarious compendium. Following the publication of Position of the Day, Hooksexup was bombarded with reader comments: Do any of the positions work better with equipment - say, a six-pack and a helmet? And, hey, do I still need to go to the gym if I'm regularly having sex upside down with my head on a chair and my feet wrapped around my lover's neck? Hooksexup has tried to address these concerns and others in this latest edition. A team of nimble, limber, and extremely attractive volunteers selflessly ventured to the laboratory for months of research - the results of those experiments are now available for only $12.95! Each sexual position comes with an estimated caloric expenditure (for each person involved), a list of possible side effects (leg cramp, lawsuit), and equipment recommendations (hanging bar, stethoscope, cowboy hat). And no workbook, ahem, playbook, would be complete without a followup section for comments and rating boxes for the reader to fill out.
