The Book of Weird Sex
by Chris Gordon
Everything you ever wanted to know about sexual oddities from around the world - and through history - can be found in this witty and engaging volume. Read about the antics of the Egyptian Pharoah who was a serial castrator (his collection totaling over 13,000); about the ancient Syrian queen who created 'a multitude of eunuchs' through her jealousy; about the paramedic who regularly fattened her dog up with hearty meals of adolescents' testicles; and about the scissor-happy wife who cut off her husband's prize asset and threw it out of the window, only to have a duck pick it up in its bill and waddle off with it... Did you know? • In medieval times one of the few grounds for divorce was sexual incompetence, which had to be demonstrated before a court. • In Romania men can be refused entry into the Orthodox priesthood if their members 'don't reach the minimum length set down in the rules'. • Dr John Harvey Kellogg proclaimed his first breakfast cereal product as an antidote to masturbation.
