This is the second book I’ve finished in a two day period—something I’m pretty sure I’ve never done before. However, I should probably mention that the main reason I read this book so fast was because I had to sit in Chapters for hours post-tornado to charge my devices and briefly connect with the outside world. Also, I had literally nothing else to do.

Regardless, I have never laughed so hard while reading a book.

I’m a huge fan of the podcast version of “My Dad Wrote a Porno.” (If you haven’t listened to it yet, get thee to iTunes immediately!) I always listen to it whenever I’m commuting and I have a very hard (pun very much intended) time keeping my laughter to myself. Belinda Blumenthal’s world is simply unlike any other—I dare you to not bust up laughing while listening to the podcast or reading the book.

This book is a fully annotated version of Rocky Flintstone’s original masterpiece Belinda Blinked 1. It comes complete with liner notes that say what we’re all thinking, and it even has insights from Rocky Flintstone himself—I never knew how much I needed his insight on the art of writing “good” erotica).

Plus, it’s structured like a novel study guide—the podcast hosts/authors include hilarious context notes, talking points, and activity suggestions (“try having a conversation where your partner is not allowed to respond for 30 seconds”). Also, this book does the world a public service by including a diagram of the female reproductive system—there is absolutely no circumstance where someone’s penis needs to touch the cervix, let alone travel all the way around to the ovaries.

Overall, this was the funniest book I’ve ever read, and I highly suggest it for your next book of the month pick—and all the activities included after each chapter should be mandatory.
