Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling 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 fake it.

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 outrageous 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 divorcée 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.

    Story
    "Jenny is one smart and entertaining lady."

    I knew Jenny would right a funny book but I didn't expect to learn so much. I really enjoyed her frank stories and laughed many times and winced a few as well. I related to many incidents and a few hit very close to home. Jenny interviewed several experts and polled ordinary twitter folks as well to provide current opinions. I did find the book a bit long and was glad I was listening to it and not reading it. It was a good listen on a long (boring) road trip. I will certainly read more of Jenny's books.

    Story
    "Love, Lust and Faking It"

    I first heard about this book when Jenny McCarthy was on Oprah in early 2011. While Jenny was on the show promoting this book and sharing insights about her break up with Jim Carey, she defiantly sold me on the idea of buying and reading it. I waited until this book was in paper-back because I did not want to spend that much money on a hard-cover. I ended up looking it up here and buying it on audio instead – REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT – since it had been months since I wanted to read it. Well, Jenny McCarthy did not narrate this book – which infuriates me because it’s a memoir!!! Why can’t you audio your own book if it’s a memoir!!! So that bugged me. Also, some of the content was random and useless. Obviously it’s funny, but I would only recommend this book if it was free – or really cheap.

    "Jenny, you so fuuuuny"

    I really enjoyed this book, and am a big fan of anything that normalizes sexuality and gets people talking. For instance, all the girls in my office shared this book and giggled about it. I had a print copy first, and I picked it up and couldn't put it down. The only thing I would criticize is that not all of her sexuality information is 100% correct, but she doesn't claim to be. This is her experience and her opinion, so it added to the charm. Read it, listen to it!
