Book and Booze Reviews: The Hump Day Diaries

NOTE: THIS POST MAY NOT BE SAFE FOR WORK OR CHILDREN UNDER EIGHTEEN. FAIR WARNING.


Mary McCarthy, author of the top-ranked humor blog PajamasandCoffee.com, makes her publishing debut with a bang in The Hump Day Diaries, a collection of titillating reviews of sex toys, erotica, and other adult pleasure products.

McCarthy, a married mother of four, was a sex toy neophyte until Eden Fantasys asked her to review sex toys for them. Since then, she has fucked a duck, cloned a dick, put her ten-year-old Rabbit on deck, and generally dipped all ten toes (and all ten fingers, and her husband's penis) into the adult and erotica industries, all with belly-shaking humor.

Particular stand-out posts from the compilation are "Clone a Willy," "The Slut Paddle," and "Party in Your Panties." Runners-up are "Fuck a Duck," "Mary Had a Little Lamb," "Jersey Whores," and "Great Sex for Moms."

"Clone a Willy" was my favorite post for the mere fact that her husband was a willing participant, complete with (moderately safe for work) pictures. McCarthy leads the reader through the cloning process, from warming the water to a perfect 98 degrees to methods of, um, prepping the model. Although she writes about the product from the standpoint of a humorist, her assessment of the kit makes the reader want to go out and buy one, even if it's just for shits and giggles.

Overall, The Hump Day Diaries was an entertaining read. There were some parts that I felt fell into the category of oversharing, particularly near the end, but if you can blow by the personal and embrace the humorous, you're in for an evening of laughs.

I give it: 3.5 of 5 books (Like stars, but not.)

    1. Don't I know it! Hence the reason I edit my posts every few years ... it was a hysterical read, and I hope the review helped! I also posted a review on Amazon.
