What to Read 31: Books on Sex

The American Library Association's annual Banned Books Week reminded me that I was going to do a book talk about books on sex. The topic covers so many different areas that I decided to limit myself to mostly non-fiction titles and grouped them together under subjects of my own devising.

Titles include:

Marvel Romance by Stan Lee, et al

Blankets: an illustrated novel by Craig Thompson

Green Bay: love stories and other affairs by Sandy Sullivan

Loose Girl: a memoir of promiscuity by Kerry Cohen

We had a carpenter install two new doors at our house. On our old house the front door took a lot of time to do and I am so glad I did not try to do it myself.
