Banned Book Review: The New Joy of Gay Sex

November 23, 2005

28. The New Joy of Gay Sex by Charles Silverstein

Reason:  seriously objectionable in text and pictures due to the sexually explicit material

The “definitive” book on gay sex.  I was actually surprised that my local library carried this book.  In the bestsellers section, no less.  I got an odd look from the guy standing next to me when I pulled this one off of the shelf.  The book reads much like an encyclopedic “how to” of gay sex.  The articles are well written, detailed and sometimes include…. Whoops…. pictures.  I think I gave some poor passerby a bit of a shock when I got to the picture of the threesome.  Not intended for children, obviously.  But if you’ve ever been curious about the lingo of the “alternative” lifestyle, this is the book for you.  The book focuses almost exclusively on male homosexuals, but does occasionally explore lesbians, the transgendered and the transsexual.  Sometimes naive, sometimes graphic, and often humorous.  Highly recommended reading.  But probably not in public places.
