Worst Laid Plans: When Bad Sex Happens to Good People by Alexandra Lydon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When bad sex happens to good people, there is no recourse like full disclosure. "Worst Laid Plans" originally began in Los Angeles in 2007 as a stage show with multiple monologists at Upright Citizens Brigade, the highly influential comedy organization co-founded by Amy Poehler. (Stars like Poehler, Janeane Garofolo, and SNL's Casey Wilson made appearances at later performances.) The show and now the book feature probably-too-intimate, but shockingly funny, true-life tales of sex gone wrong. The stories will be divided into themed sections including: Foreign Affairs ('When bad sex goes abroad'), Self-Help ('Love thyself...but do it carefully'), On the Rebound ('The art of getting back in-and-out there'), Mob Mentality ('People will do things in groups they would never do alone'), Relationsh*t ('Putting the Gruesome back in twosome') and The End of Innocence ('A memorial to virginity'). Candid and usually unapologetic, the writers of the essays are not victims, but rather the architects of their own humorous misfortune. The book will include 30-50 essays, sexual trivia and statistics and some sidebars.
