Sex Tips from Rock Stars by Paul Miles

I’ll say this much for Sex Tips from Rock Stars – you may not learn anything new from the book, but you’ll sure as hell be entertained.

From Almost Famous to Spinal Tap, Penny Lane to Connie Hamzy, we’re taught that “rock god” and “sex god” are interchangeable terms. There’s no doubt that musicians have a certain power when they perform that’s an aural aphrodisiac. The question is, are there any actual bedroom tips and tricks these rockers have to back up the appeal?

That’s the question that Miles sheds some light on in Sex Tips from Rock Stars. In the new book from Omnibus Press (a publisher better known for serious biographies than sex guides), 23 different musicians give their tips, “in their own words” on groupies, fetishes, romance, marriage and everything in between. I say musicians because, lets face it – “Rock Stars” is a bit relative.

People who live and work in the world of books – folks like librarians and indie booksellers – tend to pride themselves as huge supporters of free speech.  No matter where you fall on the political, religious or philosophical spectrum, we can usually find something to recommend to you.  In the world of the written word, pretty much nothing is taboo.

Except getting it on.

Granted, the difficulty selling books about sex almost always comes from squeamishness on the part of a customer, not a bookseller.  The culture around sex in the US isn’t exactly a welcoming or celebratory one.  It is all too easy to offend someone by suggesting a book about s-e-x, but there are so many good books on the topic that it would be unfair to write them off as a whole.

These titles are certainly engaging enough to attract even a casual reader, and are all well-written, well-researched, interesting and entertaining.  So snuggle up with someone and get reading! Continue reading
