Real Auto-Erotica! (NSFW)

Carma Sutra
The Auto Erotic Handbook
Games and Selsdon
2006

NOTE:  Because this book is clearly NSFW, I have put the cover after the text.  Click each picture for a bigger image.

Here we go with another un-met information situation. Where can people find reliable, current information on the mechanics of car sex? I don’t mean having sex WITH your car, although I am sure someone has thought about that. This book is about having sex IN and ON your car. It has diagrams and everything!

So, the advice seems helpful. I totally appreciate the safety tip on not having sex on the hood of the car until the engine cools down. To be honest, I had never thought of the trunk (3rd picture), or the car wash (4th picture), as options. Maybe this book does fill a desperate information need. I also appreciate the large number of makes and models addressed in this book. I was going to ask my hubs (a dedicated engineer with more than 30 years in the auto industry) what he thought, but he hasn’t stopped laughing yet.

Of course my librarian brain just couldn’t stop thinking about this book. Not the sex stuff (okay, I did think about that too). To me, the interesting question is where we file this gem. The LOC subject heading is sex instruction, but I am thinking maybe my automobile-oriented clientele might appreciate this book more if it was filed with the automobile information. Discuss.

Oh my! WWRD? (What would Ranganathan do?)

  • Holy cow! Tape the chiropractor’s pager number near the trunk latch!

  • Need to know -was this in a public library??? And where was this when I was in high school and sex was primarily in automobiles?

  • In my crusade to broaden the definition of intellectual freedom, I’m going to defend this book for providing useful information. For some people, having uncommon and exciting sex is a valid information need. This book helps them do it more safely, an important public library function. I don’t think that these activities are illegal. For many people with the right partner, they are not even immoral for many religions.

    I would agree with weeding since the information is out-of-date, but laughing at people who might be interested in such material goes against the public library’s mission to meet the information needs of its patrons. More people might be interested in this book than in the many niche publications that public libraries often buy.

    • Bob, I agree, with the exception that I believe sex in public is illegal, so the car wash is out.

    • No, they definitely *should* be laughed at. Just not to their faces, that’s all.

    • Except that cars come with a lot more features now. So an updated version to include heated seats that fully recline and the like would be in order.

  • Now that everyone has an SUV this book probably isn’t needed as much as it once was.

  • This is just marvellous. I thought it would be about people having sex with cars (apparently that’s a thing), but this is just grand. Love the underwear pics!

  • There are more warnings and precautions than in a home-repair manual. The lawyers had a field day with this one!

  • How fast were they going? Ah, hem I mean what is the copyright date?

  • I have to know if there is a warning about what to do if the seat gets compressed and someone gets their head stuck under an armrest. This happened to one of my older cousins and at the time instead of putting any weight on the seat to let her get out; her “date” just opened the door. No way to hide that injury if you don’t wear bangs.

  • I drive a 300C and I can’t IMAGINE squeezing into the front seats for car “fun”. There is a console between the seats, for God’s sake! We won’t even go into the fact that if you get my car the least bit dirty, I will have to hurt you. I don’t care if George Clooney wants nookie in the front seat. NO WAY. NO HOW. Nuh uh. give me a comfortable bed any day. heck, even a coffee table would be easier on the body than THIS.

    OTOH, I want a copy of this, but I might just hyperventilate from the laughter!
