Not Your Average Best-Seller

In wake of all the controversy surrounding The Pedophile’s Guide To Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct being shamelessly sold on, I have decided to share other less-than-appropriate titles that have made history. Regardless of your stance surrounding these literally masterpieces, I applaud them for having made our reading options a little more interesting.

However, here’s a brief warning: Attempting to read any of these titles on the subway may result in public scorning and general humiliation.

1. The Joy Of Sex – What is known today as one of the most popular books on the subject of sex; was once the target of religious groups everywhere. Losing only to the Kama Sutra, The Joy of Sex was one of the first illustrated sex guides to be widely distributed in America. After being pulled out of an Idaho public library in March of 2008, The Joy Of Sex has since gained its rightful place back into the hands of anyone looking for a few tips on how to ‘get it on’.

2. And Tango Makes Three – According to the American Library Association, And Tango Makes Three was officially the most controversial book between the years of 2006 and 2009. The reason? It focuses around the true story of Roy & Silo; two male penguins who became a unit and raised an egg in the Central Park Zoo. Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson – the masterminds behind the book – claim to have written the children’s novel as an attempt to bring awareness about same-sex families, homosexuality and adoption.

3. It’s Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health – Catered towards children undergoing puberty, this book made headlines after a woman in Maine decided to “borrow” all of the titles from local libraries and not return then, claiming the book was too pornographic. Despite is controversy, the book was awarded with “Best Book Of The Year” by the American Library Association and the New York Times.

4. The Happy Hooker: My Own Story – Written by Xaviera de Vries, a former madam and call girl, the memoir was the first of it’s kind due to her honest and positive tales on sex. Published in 1971, the book became popular for being one of the first to discuss sex in a such an optimistic manner. Hey, as long as she was happy.

5. Asking About Sex & Growing Up – Much like it’s counterpart It’s Perfectly Normal, Asking About Sex & Growing Up was yet-another book catering towards pubescent teens. Considered to be one of the most challenged books between 1990 to 1999, Asking About Sex is responsible for teaching many kids what their parents were dreading. After all, back then there was no such thing as easily accessible free porn.
