Book Review: I’d Rather Eat Chocolate: Learning to Love My Low Libido by Joan Sewell

This book is funny and takes a good look at the perception of sex between guys and girls. I can relate well to the author because I do not have a pressing need for sex all the time, but according to our society a woman in her 20s is a party girl and wants to have sex all the time. I think many of you would enjoy the book but most of you will chicken out of checking it out at the library for fear of how you will be viewed. Take a chance on this book, and you will not regret it!

From the book: “If I had a choice between having sex and reading a good book, the book wins. I notice I put in the adjective ‘good’—and that leaves me wondering if I’m not trying to put a better face on things. I still want people to read this and think, ‘Well, of course. If it’s a good book.’ But my boyfriend—the man I would eventually marry—would take even bad sex over a good book.”

Review: “The best part of this intelligent book is how Sewell subtly frames her sexual issues within modern culture, from Sex and the City to Girls Gone Wild to pornography and lap dances.” –USA Today
