This is such a true story it almost hurts - yet feels so good at the same time. I know so many women who can relate, including myself, and it's an amazing achievement to manage to write about sex and still make it fresh, true, and relevant. Bravo. More funny, awkward, feminist shit like this, pleeeease!
You can learn as much from a terrible book as a brilliantly written one.
i first downloaded this to get a few laughs. And in the beginning, I wasn't too disappointed.
Then, it changed. I was hoping for wild mishap dating experiences, and instead, I got long rants on how bad the guys were. I couldn't finish it.
I'd definitely recommend this book to any world-weary single friends exhausted from the frustrating front lines of dating.
Laugh - I also really loved her Gen X pop culture references. Makes you feel as if she's talking to you directly.
I will definitely subscribe to her iTunes podcast-she's funny, honest, intelligent and cool.
I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."
This is a memoir to take to bed and not get up 'til you've heard the the very end.
Poor Julie dated too many jerks in sensitive sheep's clothing— but my god, they provided her a wealth of material: the long-distance internet crushes, the BF fixated on a threesome, and Colin, the vegan, who only liked the taste of his own semen.
This book is pure porn for people who delight in dating disaster stories (who, me?).

Listening to this book made me grateful I'm married, because most of the guys Klausner dated seem like creeps and/or weirdos. I appreciated her honesty as she talked about sexual positions, sexual kinks, sexual diseases, and other topics most people keep private. While I didn't agree with some of Klausner's choices in life, I found her entertaining and funny and rooted for her to find a good guy or at least to stop sleeping with the bad ones.

Okay, I didn't know what to expect when I bought this book, so I just took a chance. In the beginning, I thought, hmm, not sure about this book. But after a couple of chapters, I was totally laughing out loud! I would listen in my car on my way to work and have tears of laughter rolling down my face. Then when at work, I would share bits of the book with my friends and force them to listen to parts of it at lunch. The humor is so similar to that shared by my friends and me.
I also loved that the author reads this book. Usually I don't like author read books, but this time, hearing her story in her voice made all the difference.
Now, I cannot stress this enough, if you are a prude in any way, do not listen to this book, it will surely offend you. But if you roll with the punches and enjoy true and honest tales that are told with brilliant humor, you will love this book.
This is a wonderful listen. I love when audiobooks are read by the authors, if done well, and in this case Julie Klausner does a beautiful job of narrating. She is so funny-- I have told all my friends to read it. Definitely a girl's book though. It really spoke to me, I could relate to SO many of her sentiments on dating. I will probably listen again at some point!!
