Ryan DeJonghe - The Avid Reader

I didn't always read, but that changed in June of 2013. I dropped the unnecessary stuff and picked up the awesome stuff--like reading! I started posting my reviews on Amazon and within a few months rose to the top 0.1% of reviewers. My reviews then went to Goodreads, and now my blog (http://ryandejonghe.wordpress.com) and Twitter (@Ryan_Reads). If you are reading this, why not leave a comment or send me a note? I love talking to other folks about books and my reviews. Publishers and authors, feel free to drop me a note if you want me to review your book. I usually stick to mainstream publishing, but I'll consider anything. If I review your book, I’ll give you a fair and thorough review and let you know when the review goes live. You can reach me at dejonghes@gmail.com. Happy Reading!
Don't Put That in There!: And 69 Other Sex Myths Debunked - Aaron ,  MD Carroll;Rachel ,  MD Vreeman

Mom, if you are reading this review, cover your eyes. Better yet, go check out my review of Joyce Meyer’s latest book. You shouldn’t be reading this review mom. You’re embarrassing me.



Next, I want to thank the authors for recommending the book Stuck Up!: 100 Objects Inserted and Ingested in Places They Shouldn't Be. I need to read that book.



And now for everyone else, please bear with me as I try to write this review whilst working around the censors. I’m assuming you’ll know what I mean by manhood and rear orifices. The main goal of DON’T PUT THAT IN THERE! is to dispel the myths, to validate experimentation, and to prevent diseases and unwanted pregnancies. Real quick: yes, it is okay to swallow; no, there’s hardly any chance to catch something from a toilet seat; and, yes, you can get pregnant using the “pulling out” method.



For you men, you may or may not be within average range. A lot of this book finishes answers with inconclusive findings, but offers a chock-full (not that other word; get your mind out of the gutter) of evidence and research to get you thinking. In this instance, when men self-reported online their manhood measurements, the numbers were a bit larger compared to the urologist-conducted study. Sure, one measured hard and the other measured yanked flaccid members, but it gets you thinking.



The main idea here is to satisfy curiosity and keep y’all pervs safe. Speaking of pervs, apparently not as many folks are watching those special channels online that the media would have us to believe. In most cases, readers of this book will find reassurances for safety and avoidances of bundles of surprise joys. In other cases, you may find out something new that would cause you to run home and rub your eyebrow (you’ll have to read this to find out). And as for curiosity, just how wide can that rear orifice expand? (Again, read it to find out.)



I’m writing this during World Cup time. There are some teams with pre-game rules about hanky-panky. They should also read this book; there’s a chapter about that.



Interesting topics and lots of evidence makes for an interesting read. With that, I thank St. Martin’s Press for providing me with an electronic review copy of this book for review. Now, I need to go re-read that Joyce Meyer book myself.
