For fans of Chelsea Handler, the funny, irreverent—and at times uncomfortably honest—tale of one young woman's journey to reclaiming her sexuality on the fringes of New York City's sex and dating world.
Meet Olive. Olive is your average New York City gal who hasn’t had sex in five years, one month, three days . . . and counting. Despite some decent dates over the years and even a boyfriend or two, when she finds herself in the middle of a bona fide sex rut, she knows it's time to take action. Challenged by a friend to "say yes" to experiences that she might normally shy away from, Olive embarks on a series of adventures to jumpstart her love life. From BDSM classes, orgasmic meditation sessions, and "furry" parties to platonic tickling, interviews with porn stars, and lessons from a top-ranked pickup artist, Olive discovers the power of saying yes—to herself, others, and life itself.
Written with her signature candor and humor, Olive's willingness to discuss her vulnerabilities, insecurities, and fears will appeal to readers who are interested in exploring their own sexuality from a fresh and earnest vantage point. Along the way, readers will wonder: Will Olive ever have sex again? Will her love life be okay? Will her toe fungus come back? Does she ever find her mojo, and where was it hiding? The Coitus Chronicles will answer these questions and more.
