Intelligent, upbeat, and sex-positive, the pieces in Best Sex Writing 2009 offer an in-depth look at sex the way it actually happens in America today. Gubernatorial sex scandals, rape fantasies, "Dear John" letters, teen sexuality, purity balls, the pregnant man, the science of screwing, bathroom sex, and other topics are scrutinized by noted columnists, bloggers, and authors in pieces that are funny, informative, challenging, sexy, and serious. Edited by sex commentator and erotic author Rachel Kramer Bussel and guest judge MSNBC sex columnist Brian Alexander, this collection goes behind the headlines for a very different kind of sex ed.

Praise For Best Sex Writing

"..provocative answers and even more provocative questions about the role of sexuality in our lives...If you're the type who thinks the brain is the most important sex organ, you'll definitely want to read on--and you won't be disappointed."-Clean Sheets

"Everything here is well-written and could pass for a piece found in a magazine like The New Yorker"-AVN

A fun, nimble book that never loses its sense of humor about itself.” Salon

Interesting and thought-provoking. Like a whole issue of The New Yorker if The New Yorker gave any attention to sex.” Kevin Killian, author of The Wild Creatures
