The Square Root of Sex
I love this cover! What’s not to love? Nerd scientists, sex research, and the word orgy as an acronym. Think of this as a send up of Masters and Johnson. Perfect for a weekend read.
…this was at a library?
I see Colin Firth was once a cover model.
I remember seeing these in the store as a teen. Felt too guilty to actually buy one though.
ORGY, by the way, stood for the Organization for the Rational Guidance of Youth.
Holy Crow!! I want to read this book. Just gotta say, when I was scanning the pages, I thought the Professor’s name was Woodcock, not Woodchuck. So Austin Powersy!
Actually, it’s Woocheck.
She purred, “Oh baby, I love it when you play tic tac toe on me!”
“One million dollars!” brings Dr. Evil to mind when he wanted to hold the world ransom, only to find out it wasn’t a lot of money anymore. 🙂
“Fig” Newton!? Bleaurrgh!
Dr. Peerloin? Oh my.
For an Australian reader the title also carries a crude and obvious double meaning.
It’s meant to be dirty. It’s basically a porn novel. Even though his other book, The Man From O.R.G.Y. was turned into a movie, it appears.
Of course! But I was referring in particular to the Australian usage of the word “root” which non-Australians are not always aware of.
Please, send it to me in a plain brown paper bag.
good heavens ms sakimoto! you’re beautiful!
The elements in harmony…♪
I am a bit concerned about how this book passed the collection development policy test.
Sometimes people do what they have to to make a living. His later works were less lurid. http://biography.jrank.org/pages/426/Gottfried-Theodore-Mark-1928.html
Goodness, I’d never have guessed.
This is, of course, a fictionalisation of what really did happen in making the Kinsey Report – ‘the book on Sex’ mentioned (but not named in order to avoid danger of libel) in the blurb. The reality was much more boring and messy; there was a rather dull British TV docudrama version not so long ago. Even with actors who are much better-looking than real people, sex isn’t really a spectator sport, is it?
Glad she is wearing underwear not commando.
