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.

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.
