The Teenage Body Book

So here's a funny thing. In Ozona, me and my cousin went out to the family's ranch property outside of town to look around.  My cousin, now 40 years old, lived there as a child. He's now considering renovating the house and moving back out there. Exciting. In all the old junk, we found this comedy goldmine:

The subtitle at the bottom reads: "Honest, no-nonsense answers to the hundreds of questions you have about these vital years in your life."  Vital years? Really? Also, note that the boy and girl are dressed like twins on the cover - which includes denim shirts. WEIRD.

Anyway, the book was his. HEHEHEHEHE.

Published in 1978, this book brought me endless giggles. There was a whole chapter titled, "My Fantasies and Dreams." I can't get into the details, but it gave me the major LOLs. I thought it was pretty progressive of my aunt to buy the thing. He just thought it was lazy of her. Whatever you want to call it, the hilarity was totes worth it.

So, as a prank, we wrapped it up and put it under the tree for our family Christmas. It was addressed to another cousin, an 18-year-old freshman in college. The poor little unsuspecting guy opened that puppy up -- TOTAL AWKWARDNESS. Mission accomplished! He blushed and tried to laugh it off. Teenage discomfort at Christmas dinner is definitely a successful prank. A couple of glasses of wine later, we all got a kick out of some of the excerpts.

1970's sex book = Christmas magic.


  1. LOVE it, that is hilarious! Maybe I can get one for my teenage nephew next year... ;)

  2. Well I feel a little bit dirty after you degraded my book all over the internet...and a little bit lost now that it's gone. HAHAHAHAHA, have fun on the plains.

  3. Hehehe... too funny!! Hope you had a Merry Christmas!


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
