I cannot tell you the number of times Ive wondered, especially after a spicy meal, why evolution wasnt smart enough to build us with buttholes made out of something more durable? Titanium, perhaps??

DAY 8 #ExpressYourself | For this prompt, I had to go with some of the best memoirs I‘ve read this year. I love reading about other people‘s experiences. These folks put themselves out there, and for that, I‘m grateful.

britt_brooke @ljuliel Hmmm, that‘s tough. A few were 5 stars, but for totally different reasons: Gross Anatomy, Becoming, Life Will be the Death of Me, All Over but the Shoutin‘. 5d
britt_brooke @DrexEdit It‘s really interesting and different. And great on audio, if you like to listen. (edited) 5d

This book is great. Really hilarious, informative, empowering - just great. I was finally compelled to try it after seeing it on the Local Authors shelf at the library, had no idea Altman lives here in San Diego. Love her voice, written and speaking - the audio was terrific. The sheltered, decade-or-two younger me would have found this very TMI, but now I find it JtRAoI (just the right amount of information. There must be a better acronym 😂).

Hooked_on_books I loved this one! 4mo

Altman is a riot. On top of her first person experiences she hilariously details conversations with doctors, scientists, surgeons, at least one porn star, and a number of salon professionals to find out more about how and why our bodies function the way they do, as well as to dig into the truth about current practices to, well, make women look the way they wish, whether that's by bleaching their anus or paying for a labiaplasty.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Altman divulges the weird shit we deal with as women in a hilarious and informative manner. From body hair to tush functions to camouflaging the “toe,” she boldly discusses personal experiences and reservations while also conducting valid research. Think of a less boring Mary Roach (sorry; I like your books but they‘re dry as hell) with an blunt and dark sense of humor. I actually snorted, you guys. Loved every second!

baes Omg this sounds amazing. 😂😂 7mo
Kappadeemom Sounds good!! 7mo

Reviewsbylola Omg, so agree about Mary Roach. I loved Stiff but that was mostly because, ya know, dead bodies. Her other books bored me to tears. Stacking this one. 7mo
Reviewsbylola And damn, you know you‘ve written a glowing review when you have 14 stack adds in an hour! 7mo
britt_brooke @Reviewsbylola It makes me so happy when there are a lot of stacks, especially so fast. I think you‘ll like this one. And thank you for agreeing with me on Roach! 🙌🏻 (edited) 7mo
JamieArc I think this is the most stacks I‘ve seen for one post 😊 7mo
britt_brooke @JamieArc Whoa, 31?! It‘s by far the most stacks I‘ve ever gotten. 🙌🏻 Such a great read. This makes me happy!! 7mo
Megabooks I have this in my list! I always love your reviews! I was down in your neck of the woods at Vanderbilt hospital today. Lots of traffic for the draft! 7mo
britt_brooke @Megabooks Thank you! 🤗💚 Hope you‘re doing ok?? My husband works downtown and says the traffic/crowds have been bonkers all week. He has a VIP pass to the first round tonight (through his employer). I‘m jealous!! 7mo
Megabooks Just a foot injury my doctor here couldn‘t figure out. I‘m going for a second mri. That‘s so cool that your husband has a VIP pass!! 👍🏻😎 7mo

Body hair, vaginal odor, pooping, camel toe, sweat, and much, much more! Mara Altman explores the scientific, sociological, and individual aspects of the most taboo parts of the female body in a book so entertaining you won‘t realize you‘re learning stuff! Want to hear what scientists AND porn stars have to say about hemorrhoids? Mara Altman asks all the questions. A fun, gross book.

BookNAround I have this one sitting close to my bedside table in my “next up” pile. 11mo
whatsthEStorey @BookNAround cool! I‘m interested to see what you think! Not many reviews of this one. 11mo

Mara Altman tackles many body topics about which we (and she) can be neurotic: body hair, hemorrhoids, vaginal odor, etc. She starts by discussing her own experiences in hilarious fashion, then proceeds to review the science, history, sociology and more of each topic. I just loved this book and laughed out loud in many places. It‘s terrific on audio.

Texreader This looks hilarious and so true! Stacked! 11mo
LeahBergen This sounds fun! 👏🏻 11mo

Mara uses various bodily complaints (chin whiskers, PMS, hemorrhoids) to examine the parts of the female body and seek out truth and understanding. Lots of personal anecdotes mixed with research and feminist perspectives. I liked this a lot more than I expected. My fave section might have been about camel toe, it got deep. Great listen for a road trip (I listened on a drive from VA to NY).

monalyisha Moxie says “hi”, too! Although, she‘s kind-of anti-social by nature, so I *might* have put words in her cute little mouth. 🤷‍♀️🐰 11mo

A deeply satisfying read for all of us who have questioned either why our bodies seem to have betrayed us, or why we feel the need to alter our “bags of meat” to adhere to expectations, familial, cultural, personal, or otherwise.

Reviewsbylola This sounds funny. The Litsy blurb had me like 😂😱 🔥 1y
