Adult Mad Libs - erotic book by Penguin - review by jedent

Maddening these libs was the most fun I've had all month!

A fun little mad lib book, containing 21 fill in the blank stories about love, Valentines day, and relationships. Even though it seems to be geared towards females, my husband and I had a great time laughing at the stories we skewed.
Mad libs are fun (DO ONE NOW), excellent for groups or parties, or for entertaining yourself.
Stories are kind of lame, but you can easily make up for that with the right verb in the right place

Purpose / Audience

I don't know how long it's been since you've done mad libs, but for me it had been a while. What I didn't realize about the concept of "adult" mad libs was that the stories, in this particular book at least, are just adult situations... and adult does not imply sexual.

This book is filled with rough times on Valentines day, meeting (adjective) men and letting them see your (body part.) It kind of makes me think that maybe this would be a gas to do amongst girl friends, possibly at a wedding shower, but maybe if your friends were the cast of Sex and the City.

Though they're a little lame, that's just where you have to come in and save the day with your fascinating adverbs and nouns. Thankfully it's easy to try to come up with naughty ones to make the libs quite mad.

My husband and I lit some candles, and got a little carried away coming up with past-tense verbs, but we came up with some very funny lines that made us laugh hard!

A few gems from our mad libs book:

* First, he surprise you with a *douche bag* under the light of the *blimp*.
* He had a *black* makeover from his head to his *vagina*.
* If he loves to *thrust* give him a *rubber fist*.
* As a last resort, buy yourself the sexiest *hair net* you can find and surprise him by opening the *beef jerky* wearing only that!
* Moan about your sore *junk* and place a bottle of massage *semen* by the bed side.
* You and your sweetheart are off to the *coin op* for a *raunchy* weekend getaway. When you check in to your rustic bed-and-*maple syrup*, you discover that there is no hot *maple syrup* in the bathroom and the bed is extremely *sticky*.

Rules / Content

If you can remember your nouns from your verbs, you'll be able to slip right into doing mad libs. But in case you don't remember all that 5th grade English stuff, not to worry because there are instructions on the first page to remind you.

I'm planning to get more mad libs books to keep with me, for when I'm waiting somewhere for a while in the car and I get bored. I also intend to take a book with me camping. Mad libs would make great campfire time fun.

Also, I keep a blog and I asked my readers to suggest their adverbs and adjectives so that we could do virtual madlibs! It worked out well.


Luckily there is a piece of stiff cardboard in the back of the book, so if you don't have anything to write on it's perfectly fine. The book opens vertically instead of horizontally. Plus you have the choice of filling the words in on a list, or putting them right into the story. This is helpful if you're alone, and you don't want to cheat.
Follow-up commentary
I lol'd when I took another look at these answers a few months later. Mad libs are a hilariously good time.
