Praise for the book:

'...wit and verve as well as cultural breadth and intellectual rigour. [...] Believe me: the pages fly.' - The Saturday Paper

'In this often elliptical yet candid work... nothing about sex is quite what it seems. In this respect, [Young's] cryptic, aphoristic style is reminiscent of British psychoanalyst and writer Adam Phillips.' - The Sydney Morning Herald/The Age
