New York Times bestselling author Jenny McCarthy returns
to her comic roots in this candid, wise, and witty look at
women, men, sex, romance, heartbreak, love, and how (not) to
In Belly Laughs, Jenny McCarthy told you what you could
really expect when you're expecting. In Baby Laughs and Life
Laughs, she gave you the unfiltered ups and downs of
motherhood and marriage. Now, in Love, Lust & Faking It, the
inveterate truth teller turns the lights on for a funny,
often poignant, and no-holds-barred look at the essence of
relationships: love and sex.
Jenny explores the intensity of first love, introducing us
to Tony, the boy of her teenage dreams, and Tubby, her
dirty, sexy stuffed teddy bear. She takes us on a whirlwind
tour of the world of aphrodisiacs and fetishes, explains the
importance of playing doctor and other nice and naughty
fantasies, and gives thanks for the pleasures of chocolate.
And she sets the story straight on STDs, man junk and lady
bits, why we really cheat, why women are master
manipulators, the virtues of sex with the lights off, the
power of a "loving no," the satisfaction of the perfect
booty call, and so much more.
Filled with humorous stories about her own out-rageous
exploits—from becoming a Playboy Miss October to the pain of
getting a discount boob job to meeting Brad Pitt—as well as
the lessons she's learned from family, friends, and fans.
Love, Lust & Faking It takes on a subject the sex symbol,
mother, television star, comedian, and divorcee can be
trusted to examine with nothing but unvarnished honesty and
earthy humor. Throughout, Jenny reminds us to aim higher,
believe in true love, and, most of all, be kind to
ourselves. And to have lots of fun and sex—without faking it.
