Product Description

Bargain Books are non-returnable.

Ever made it in the back of a cab? Or under a blanket in a park? In an elevator? If not, you’ve missed out because a lot of people have, and these 44 stories prove it. Shocking, bold, fun—Public Love is impossible to put down. Each first-person confessional describes the how, when, and where of a public sex act. (You can almost hear the giggles and the sound of buttons popping.) The stories are paired with grainy color photos of the lusty locales—be it a doorway, a truck stop, or, yes, the middle of Fifth Avenue. Designed in the best-selling spirit of Taxi Driver Wisdom (0-8118-1165-4), its look is cool and slightly seedy like the shadowy underworld of passion on the fly. Voyeuristic and sexy, the absolutely true tales in Public Love offer a sophisticated twist on a timeless subject. Prepare to blush, chuckle, and wonder if you should be having more fun. Carpe diem!

Customer Book Reviews

Provocative and smart insight into sexual adventure

This book is so much more than simply about people having sex in public. The stories are intensely personal, told in the participant's own words, and the descriptions of the events are filled with fascinating detail of the moment - emotion, place, time, environment. By revealing these details, the participants reveal much about themselves as human beings, and that makes the sex even more intriguing. The slyly banal photos that accompany the stories are documentary and devoid of any people, like snapshots of the places taken the day after by the participant's themselves. Public Love exposes sex as inextricably a part of a greater adventure called life.

Not your typical coffee-table book

This book is a great conversation piece and a revealing study of human nature at its most primal, presented as a series of confessionals told in the words of the participants themselves. The book is earthy and immediate, its narratives short, sometimes shocking, but always interesting. The pictures that accompany the text are great also. A recommended read.

Top stuff, very sexy

From ski lifts to cemetaries, Hawaiian hostels to Manhattan taxis, these guys hit, and I do mean hit, it all. My suggestion: Use it as a guide for your own special moments.
