    1. Mom, if you are reading this review, cover your eyes. Better yet, go check out my review of Joyce Meyer’s latest book. You shouldn’t be reading this review mom. You’re embarrassing me.Next, I want to thank the authors for recommending the book Stuck Up!: 100 Objects Inserted and Ingested in Places They Shouldn't Be. I need to read that book.And now for everyone else, please bear with me as I try to write this review whilst working around the censors. I’m assuming you’ll know what I mea [...]

    3. I won this through a giveaway- not my usual kind of book, but the title was amusing and I generally approve of any work that aims to demystify the human condition.I must be honest, I'm not sure who was the intended audience for this work. You have to hope that most adult Americans are past the stage of believing that masturbation causes hairy palms or blindness, so I initially assumed this was intended for the teenaged reader or the young adult who has learned the basics of sex ed but still has [...]

    4. For the most part, I liked this book and felt that the information contained in this book was accurate. However, the authors did spout quite a bit of their own personal beliefs, especially about anal sex and their approval of it. When discussing the myths, the authors would defend their opinions and would only hesitantly admit something that went against their beliefs. Otherwise, they would neglect to mention information previously discussed in the book about their current topic. An example of t [...]

    5. ***4.5 stars***A non-fiction book about sex in our time, where everybody knows everything about sex? That's got to be completely redundant, right? Well, no! This book offers a great insight into those countless myths, and not only about the act itself. The myths range from absolutely nutty like "You don't get pregnant when you do it standing upright" to those well known myths you've always wondered about like "Black men are the most well endowed out there!" and ones that you most probably though [...]

    6. After reading their first book Don't Swallow Your Gum!, I was so excited about a research-based book that I finished Don't Put That In There! in two days, but in the end I was disappointed because it failed to leave up to the introduction: "We're showing you, through data, "why we think an idea is a myth."They argue that women want sex as much as men (pg. 147) by citing statistics that man and women have vaginal sex at similar frequencies. Given that the population studied having vaginal sex was [...]

    8. "Don't Put That in There" is an amusing and informative romp through all of the questions that you, I, and everyone else have always wondered but were afraid to ask (and even more afraid to Google). From classics like whether size matters the G-spot to helpful advice on piercings and shaving and on to more risque topics including anal sex and the toys and other aids topic that forms the title of the book, nothing is considered taboo.Those readings this work for practical answers to questions in [...]

    10. I just found out that I won this book in a First Reads drawing. I am SUPER excited to read this one. I haven't read a good nonfiction sex book in a long time. UPDATE: I enjoyed reading this book. It is accessible and gently humorous.This book would be good for any person, about age 15 and up, who doesn't know much about sex but wants to learn. The authors write in a way that makes this book easy to read by an older teen or adult. There aren't a lot of big words or medical terms. The writing is n [...]

    11. I received my copy today from the publisher in return for sharing my thoughts on this book. It's a fairly brisk read and a somewhat fun book after having read another book on such a topic as sex and the human anatomy. There are a few reasons why I wasn't able to rate it higher than three stars. For one, the authors' usage of "very, very" and "many, many, many" repeated so often that it became distracting. The first few chapters even seemed like a repetition in the use of the same sentences they [...]

    12. I received a free ARC from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. It was a very quick read. You could skim through sections or even look at specific questions if you do not was to read the book all the way through. It was organized in a very reader friendly manner. As for the information, most of the myths seemed pretty obvious. For example, you can get pregnant in water or using the pull out method. No shock to me there. I guess some people might be shocked by [...]

    13. I consider myself pretty well educated when it comes to sexuality and sexual health, but I definitely felt like I learned a lot from this book and found the bite-size chapters very fun and approachable. I can always appreciate any book with such a sizable reference section, and the authors clearly did their research. Also, I think the authors should be commended for their inclusion of all couples, not just heterosexual pairs. They model openness and lack of judgement, and I appreciate that they [...]

    14. Great information, great topic, great books. What makes this book great is that it reads like your having a conversation with your girlfriend who just happens to be a doctor. It does not read like some heavy non-fiction tomb that makes you want to pull your eyes out. It covers all the things you would talk about in everyday life (if you talk about sex in your everyday life) and debunks myths, admits when there is not a definit answer, and tells you when something is real and not a myth. Overall [...]

    15. Very fascinating book all about sex myths. It make me laugh, cry, cringe and well duh! I did learn somethings while reading this. Very informative. Some of these myths are extremely outrageous and hilarious. Most of the chapter titles will make you laugh out loud.My favorite parts are how to actually measure the length of a penis (that was eye opening and cringeworthy) (yikes), anal sex can give you cancer ( teehee) and losing tampons while they get sucked into an abyss. Wow, just wow. Towards t [...]

    16. Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Let's talk about sex baby, let's talk about you and meoops, sorry Salt n PepaAnywayThis book was a fun read. Each "chapter" was a basically an entry on a different sex myth. They covered myths about men, women and then just sex in general. The authors wrote the book in an easy to read and relateable way. Would have been a great bathroom read but I read it in one sitting in an afternoon. Definitely makes for great conversations.

    17. Исключительно полезная книга, которую даже можно рекомендовать в качестве учебного пособия :) Приятно, что написана она мужчиной и женщиной, что гарантирует равномерное и равноценное освещение вопросов, связанных с обоими полами. Главное, конечно, что авторы – профессион [...]

    18. This is he 3rd book by these authors I've read (go check out Don't Swallow your Gum & Don't Cross Your Eyes) and quite obviously from the title, its debunking sex myths. Some were silly & obvious but many were quite interesting. My favorite that I don't understand may be that wearing a bra does not prevent sagging. I enjoy Dr. Carroll anytime he's on Stand Up with Pete Dominick on Sirius XM and this book did not disappoint.

    19. Disclaimer: I received this book through First Reads giveaway. Hilarious and informing!!!! I absolutely love this book!!!! I learned a lot about my body, and my husbands. Some info I knew, and some I did not, some I found comical and some I found terrifying. I am super glad that I read this book and got some wisdom to pass along to my friends!

    20. Picked this book up after watching Aaron Carroll on a Mental Floss video and wanted to know more about all the myths. I knew most of what was covered in this book, but did learn some interesting things. The book is humorous, but I liked that everything was well-researched and there was quite the bibliography included. Fun book to read and share.

    21. This is a really entertaining book. It has some education mixed with humor. I think this would be a really good book to give younger teens, because hopefully adults don't still believe you can't get pregnant standing up and some of the other crazy myths. I do think this would help answer a lot of questions that teenagers have but are too embarrassed to ask.

    22. *** ARC received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review/***Being a Sociology major, I liked this book because it an informative guide that just about anyone could clearly comprehend.Not only was it easy to read, but it was thought-provoking and funny as well. Giving this one 5 stars.

    23. 3.5 stars. Easy to read, straight forward info. I would have liked a bit more scientific research cited but that may be due to my own background/ profession (and there is some evidence to bust the myths). Solid info that should be accessible for all. Comprehensive sex education should cover most of this info too!

    24. I mostly checked this out because of the cover. An entertaining and educational books of questions-and-answers about sexual health. Not so many surprises, but written in an accessible and engaging manner by two public-health-minded pediatricians. No, you are unlikely to get chlamydia from a toilet seat, but remember that sex you had? Yeah.

    25. I think this would have been more appropriate for a teen audience rather than an adult onebut then again, I suppose many adults weren't given proper sex-ed. It kinda lacked substance. I can see it being on the coffee table at a proctologist's office.

    26. Quick little snippets that debunk some of those myths we've heard over the years. All layman's language, not entirely scientifically-based but they do make mention of the odd case study group involving anywhere from 3 to 2000 people.

    27. Informative and laugh out loud funny!I truly enjoyed this book of Q&A about sexual health. Fast and easy read. Will definitely recommend to friends. Received from St. Martin's Press via first-reads.

    28. I won this book here on ! It is a wonderfully put together, short chaptered read. They use great humour with fact to answer a lot of those awkward questions, especially those new to the whole shebang, although there are also some things in here for the seasoned set as well.

    29. Ok, honestly, I scanned through the book. I found most of the book was stuff I already figured, so it was kind of boring to me. And I had hoped they debunked the "racial penis profiling" but they didn't lol.

    30. A informative and at times funny book. Most of these sex myths, both for men and women, were crazy. Some were downright ridiculous and I can't people would believe some of them, but I enjoying reading and learning.
