Paperback 529: After Sex With the Single Girl / Richard Bernstein and William Storm Hale (APS 9505))

Paperback 529: APS Books 9505 (PBO, 1965)

Title: After Sex With the Single Girl
Authors: Richard Bernstein & William Storm Hale
Cover artist: N/A

Yours for: $6

Best things about this cover:

  • A short-lived experiment in quilting the book title
  • Originally called "Cigarette With the Single Girl," but that title was deemed to have totally missed the authors' (alarmist) point.
  • I like how William "Storm!" Hale kept his pro wrestling name for this gig.

Best things about this back cover:

  • "Honey, I have something to tell your nose..."
  • "Sex-prone teens!" So sex is like allergies or acne. Good to know.
  • There's nothing dynamite likes less than having light shed on it.

Page 123~ (actually 122—close enough)
John Doe would like to commit adultery, but who wants him? One fat, balding man put it candidly: "What chick would want to go to bed with me unless I paid her?" Such honesty is rare, but he was right; from a self-assured young man, he had been transformed into a jelly-fish slob.
"Such honesty is rare ... but I'm going to pile on his fat ass anyway."

This book is *heavily* underlined and occasionally annotated. My favorite annotation is at the beginning. It's just a list:

page 75—Racial marriages
         77—Gang bang

It's like some kind of (horrible) poem

Illegitimate motherhood! I didn't know you could be a legit mother.

It's not a list, it's a paraphrase of one of my unpublished Haikus

The frog plunges-
Racial Marriages
Gang Bang, normal.

Was biting your boyfriend on the nose the way to tell him you're pregnant back in the 60s? Because that sure looks like what she's doing.

I swear that I read Rex's entire post completely, yet I consistently re-make a joke that he's already made, thinking I've come up with it myself.

Being embarassed, I shall now shut up.
