Testicles/Penis Books

The Testicular Cancer Awareness Week (tcaw.org) library lists pertinent books on testicles and testicular cancer. Many of the books are either out-of-print or are too technical and too expensive (from $74 to $160. They are obviously intense medical documents for the urologic oncologist and not for personal consumption. They have some interesting information on epidemiological, diagnostic, and therapeutic management to facilitate optimal treatment of testicular or penile cancers. They address testicular cancer, including the pathology of germ-cell cancers of the testes; diagnostic approaches and surgical management of testicular cancer; fertility and sexual function in testicular cancer management; and future directions in testicular cancer.

There are many chapters written by surgeons, and we've tried to include previous patients advice as well as published articles that we have reprinted, for the purpose of showing the reader how dangerous it is for any man to walk into a surgeons office, without any clue of what kind of questions to ask. Remember, you only have one penis so educate yourself before you enter any surgeons office. Faiz Ansari; 1998 ISBN: 0968368808 Buy This Book!

Cohen, Joseph, The Penis Book. Think you know everything about penises? When I told my mother that I was writing a book about penises, she replied: "Why would anyone want to write about peanuts?" Now that the book is finished, autographed and FedEx'd to Mom, it should be clear that Jimmy Carter and I have very little in common. This book celebrates the male member like nothing else before. So -- whether you're male, female, straight or gay -- get ready to learn, laugh and be downright titillated. Bet you don't know what hospitals do with foreskins once they've been snipped away. How fortunes were made in the war against wet dreams. The one song you should never whistle at a urinal. Or what life's really like working on a "hopping penis" assembly line. The book has the answers to all of these questions and many more. From ancient Japanese fertility rituals to the lowdown on how smoking can trigger impotency, this book is always fascinating. It's terrific looking, too. With its remarkable photos, drawings and slick art direction, It is an incredible gift-giving book. I still don't know how the publisher can offer a hardcover book like this for under ten dollars...and that's before Amazon's discount! Do you have a penis? Want one? Love them? Hate them? Whatever you check off, this book has something for you. Konemann; 1999, ISBN: 3829021860 Buy This Book!

Danielou, Alain, The Phallus : Sacred Symbol of Male Creative Power Beginning with an overview of the symbolism of creative forces in general, The Phallus first examines the representation of male fertility in such forms as the menhirs or standing stones of prehistoric Europe; the Mahalinga and Svayambhu of India; and the ancient Greek Omphalos. The second part of the book surveys the presence of ithyphallic gods in archaic shamanistic religions (the Lord of the Animals), the Greek pantheon (Hermes, Priapus), and the Hindu deities (Ardhanarishvara, the androgyne). Danielou also explores the role of Shaivist and Dionysian initiatory rites in bringing men into communion with the creative forces of life. Illustrated throughout with photographs and line drawings of European and Indian art, The Phallus celebrates the expression of the masculine in the religious traditions of East and West. Phallic imagery, in one form or another, may be found in the artistic traditions of virtually every world culture since prehistoric times. Alain Danielou here unveils the religious impulse underlying art that at first glance seems to have no purpose beyond the erotic.

Flannery, Tim F., Throwim Way Leg : Tree-Kangaroos, Possums, and Penis Gourds-On the Track of Unknown Mammals in Wildest New Guinea. In this book, Australia-based mammologist-raconteur Tim Flannery recalls scientific expeditions in the wilds of New Guinea that convey both the thrill of discovery and the negotiations necessary to bridge huge clashes of cultures. A world expert on New Guinea's fauna, Flannery has discovered 20 new species during his two decades of research. Yet his ability to convey unalloyed adventure in his taletelling makes these scientific expeditions read more like hair-raising, funky Redmond O'Hanlon-style travels than disciplined, scholarly field trips. Energy and danger run high.Terrific thunderstorms and aircraft mishaps rattle Flannery during his travels. Yet the most memorable quality of Throwim Way Leg is Flannery's incorporation of humans into the natural world he writes about, often contrasting the jungled New Guinea denizens with stark modern technologies. He writes rich profiles of those he has met, and his images are memorable and meaningful: crowds of people gaping at a single television set; the remote landscape of Mt. Albert Edward dotted with cattle, Swiss chalets, and the smoky fires of the Goilala people; the malnourished Yapsiei greeting him reeking of the "sweet, sickly smell" of grile, a form of ringworm. Ultimately, Flannery looks ahead and sees that the age of discovery is not at all complete in New Guinea, as so much remains unknown. But, in an often-told tale, modern political forces are at work, reshaping those unique natural and cultural environments that Throwim Way Leg explores with such vigor.

Giles, Fiona, ed., Dick for a Day: What Would You Do if You Had One?. While not really a book directed to men, versus at men, this review offers a look into the thoughts of a small group of women writers - feminists, scholars, performers and artists. Left with this outrageous question to celebrated women, the results are serious, humorous and downright strange. What's most exciting is that every man will be able to ponder his own response - and discover the basis for arguments, fantasies and gender benders of the most provocative kind. "Breasts for a Day" just doesn't have the same ring to it, somehow. Villard www.randomhouse.com 1997 ISBN 0-679-77353-3 Buy This Book!

Gore, Margaret, The Penis Book : An Owner's Manual. You would think that the mythology of male sexuality is a thing of the past, that most men know that from time to time their penises won't achieve or sustain erections, and that guys have just as much right as women to occasionally not be in the mood. But images of hyperdrive masculinity still exist in popular culture, and as long as guys take them to heart, they'll continue to freak out over the smallest malfunctions. Thus, The Penis Book is a comfort object, a small and easily concealable guide to how the penis works and why it occasionally doesn't, how men can effectively prevent impregnating their partners, and how to deal with the real problems that occur, including STDs.

Paley, Maggie and Sergio Ruzzier(Illustrator), The Book of the Penis. Penis. Penis, penis, penis. Say the word penis often enough and not only will you no longer choke on it, but you may even be able to write a report about the male member that gets straight to the point. Novelist Paley (Bad Manners, 1985) is right: Once the subject becomes the male sexual organ, every phrase, every word, is a double entendre. Nevertheless, she plunges ahead (there it is again) with a book that explores physiology (size matters, at least as evidenced by the ruler and the fig leaf on the coverdesigned to lift and reveal Michelangelo's vision of David's penis), history, penis worship, and penises in art, literature, movies, and fashion. There are also stomach-churning reports on what men in various cultures (including our own) do or allow to be done to their genitals, ranging from circumcision and castration to piercings, inserts, and tattoos. A section called ``The Secret Life of Men'' reports on masturbation, entertainment, products (including, of course, Viagra), and an epilogue lists men famous for their size and/or skill, including presidents, movie and sports stars, and Gregor Rasputin. A series of ``Penis Interviews'' offers intimate and sometimes thoughtful observations from transsexuals, a porn star, and a male hustler. There are wonderful bits of esoteric erotica, including a description of the fashionable Japanese penis package, the ``Nippon Slip-on,'' and activist Eldridge Cleaver's failed effort to reintroduce the codpiece to American fashion. The author is often shadowed by a male friend, Enrique, who serves as a valuable truth versus baloney meter in evaluating the information she collects. Creative black-and-white illustrations serve as chapter headings. Spirited, filled with fact and some fancy, emphasizing the penis's power to drive male behavior but designed to make both women and men more comfortable with the dreaded wordand perhaps even the actualitypenis.

Stewart, Steve, Penis Puns, Jokes & One-Liners: A movie quote book. In the opening scene of Reservoir Dogs, director and actor Quentin Tarantino explains to Harvey Keitel and Eddie Bunker his theory about the son "Like a Virgin." He says, "It's a metaphor for big dicks...I'm talkin' dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick." And so is everyone else these days - especially in the movies. I'm not sure why, but everyone seems to love putting down the penis, berating the boner, insulting the sausage, and well, you get the point. Boobs, butts and occasionally beavers are all put-down on a regular basis in the movies as well, but it's the penis that stands out from the crowd. And most of the barbs are about one thing - size. Of course, blow jobs, masturbation, erections, impotence and premature ejaculation are all part and parcel of penis repartee and dick discourse, but size - no big surprise - comes up for examination more often than any other phallic attribute or activity. Eveyone is talking about penises in the movices. But not everyone is saying anything you'd want to repeat or quote. This book attempts to be a collection of penis puns, jokes and one-liners that are humorous, stand on their own and are quotable. "A hard quote is good to find."
