Summary: Sexology, founded in 1933, was America’s first sex magazine. It ran for fifty years. This book is a collection of some of the kinky and kooky excerpts. 

Warning: This is the craziest book on sex I’ve ever seen. It’s not for the prudish, faint of heart or easily embarrassed. It’s WEIRD! Please if you are under 18, please don’t read the rest of this post.

I guess back then people were obsessed with the weird part of sex. I guess we still are but these magazine articles are weird and I don’t even know if I believe it all.

  • Extra Breasts in Women
  • Sexual Vampirism
  • Pregnant Men
  • When Midgets Marry…
  • Humans with Tails
  • Adolph Hitler’s Sex Life
  • Sex and Satan
  • Mechanics of Sexual Odor
  • Chastity Girdles
  • Wife Swapping
  • Phantom Pregnancy
  • and much, much more

The book includes many crazy photos. There are quite a few sets of bare boobs and a few other parts but nothing pornographic in any way. The book also has some old ads for sex books which are funny to read. Also some real questions people asked the magazine way back when. 

It’s definitely not a book you’d read cover to cover. I’ve already owned it for almost a year and I’ve only read a few chapters (short chapters.) It’s a fun read every once in a while when I’m looking for something kooky.
