Rec Sex: Small, Cute, and Made For Giggles

I love the way this book is laid out like a real dictionary complete with several definitions and little references to other terms in the book. Not to mention that it's compact and visually appealing. This is not a book to buy if your looking for serious content, but more something to purchase if you are looking to make a game out of it or want new clever references for your arsenal.
Cute, funny, compact and laid out well
Meant as a coffee table read not for serious reference, but more of a game book.

extremely useful review
Em and Lo's Rec Sex: An A-Z Guide to Hooking Up is a cute little dictionary of sexual terms, some of which I knew and others I didn't so hey you learn something while reading. It is a tiny aesthetically appealing book with a translucent pink and yellow book jacket, colorful pages and some cartoon pictures depicting the various definitions. The book is in alphabetical order with the letters each placed at the sides of the pages on a pale purple/pink trim so you can skim through until you find the definition you are looking for.

It's about 192 pages and can be used as a coffee table book if you wanted to do so.

The definitions themselves range from A-Z starting with the definition of “about last night”: referencing both the 1980's film with the same name or the follow up conversation some might have to have about the previous nights activities. The definitions end with “zipless fuck”:guilt free casual sex for women. Everything is in alphabetical order and each definition can come with more than one meaning, background information on where the term was coined or maybe even advice on how to handle oneself when they are in that situation. Most of this is with a comedic flare and will either cause readers to take some definitions with a grain of salt or laugh as they identify with the definitions mentioned. Also handy is if the meaning contains another definition in the book that the reader may need for reference to understand or they just want to see how Em and Lo define it with the wit and straightforward zeal words are highlighted to indicate that they can be found somewhere in the book.

All in all this is a cute book for your coffee table, but probably not something you want if you're really looking for references or how to's on the subject of recreational sex. It is still enjoyable and Em and Lo do make enough clever references to gain a chuckle or two and it can be used as a reference for films and some books that you may not have known about. Plus as I mentioned before it is quite aesthetically appealing.
Follow-up commentary
Rec Sex was not necessarily a book I hated. Nor was it a book I particularly needed or learned much from. Em & Lo’s mini guide book was always more of a funny, pop culture referencing extra to have lying around. I will say it’s grown on me some as I have learned to appreciate the fact that this was never a book meant to be taken seriously. If you want a serious book about sex Em & Lo have written those guides and EdenFantasys does have them in stock---Rec Sex is just not one of them. Moral of the story is: have a sense of humor, appreciate the little anecdotes on topics you may already know something about, maybe even learn the definition for that-thing-you-sometimes-do-in-bed, ya never know---Rec Sex could teach you something .
