Dave Barry's Guide to Marriage and/or Sex

Dave Barry's Guide to Marriage and/or SexDave Barry's Guide to Marriage and/or Sex by Dave Barry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Meskipun semangat "review challenge" menggebu-gebu pada awal tahun (dan semangatnya sempat rada kebablasan waktu sibuk mereview buku-buku yang bersinggungan dengan Colin Firth :P), pada Semester II Tahun 2015, semangat itu sudah nyaris padam. Sama sekali.

Akhirnya, demi kemaslahatan umat dan agar tetap diakui sebagai warga BBI yang patuh, aku pun membrowsing rak buku di Goodreads yang pernah kukomen rada panjang sedikit, buat diposting ulang di blog.

Curang? Tentu saja. Komen yang ku-copas di sini berasal dari buku yang kubaca pada bulan Januari 2014. Lama amat yaks...  m(_._)m

Seperti biasa, bahan tulisannya Mas Dave Barry memang adaaa aja. Dan judul buku yang satu ini cukup provokatif dan mengundang rasa ingin tahu, seperti apa panduan yang disarankannya. Tapi, aku cuma mengutip sedikit saja ya, biar rada penasaran :)

Buat yang suka baca novel romance, berikut kukutip sentilan Dave Barry di poin "Where to Get Additional Explicit Helpful Information on Sex":

The best source of reliable information is romance novels, which you can find in better bookstores and supermarkets everywhere. To know the books I mean--the cover always is a picture of a handsome and of course brooding man embracing a woman with green eyes and a bosom that is clearly heaving, sometimes most of the way out of her dress. The title is always something fairly humid, like Loins of Passion.

Dave Barry juga memberi contoh tentang adegan ranjang yang chock-full explicit, down-to-earth, practical "straight-talk" yang... sama seperti kovernya yang khas Historical Romance jadul, adegannya juga khas Hisrom banget model begini:

As Sabrina gazed upward at Baron LeGume, whose dark, brooding eyeballs were turgid with passion, she felt tormented tenseness of his throbbing, pulsating malehood, and she knew, with a knowledge borne of knowing, that she could no longer hold back the surging waves of passion that washed over her, like waves of something, as his brooding throbbing pulsating highly engorged lips sought hers, not that she wanted to hold them back...

Huahaha... adegannya benar-benar blur nggak jelas XD
