“ORBGASM: An Erotic Pulp Sci-Fi Satyricon” by Sam Irvin

Really, the sizzling subtitle of this hefty paperback novel says it all. Right there, you are being told that the book is a decadent science-fiction adventure, no doubt loaded with shocking sexual scenarios (and it is – I’ve read the book). The author, Sam Irvin, is a veritable cornucopia of intelligent camp entertainment, from articles and books to TV shows and movies. Armed with all this knowledge, you are spared a few potentially awkward questions about ORBGASM, like “Would this novel be a good Christmas gift for my strait-laced, elderly Aunt Lydia?” Of course, you might want to buy her a copy anyway, if you think she really needs to know what she’d been missing out on, during her long years of abstinence and pious devotion.

Basically, the book is a zesty tale of close encounters of the naked kind, so make sure anybody to whom you give this book is an adult with an open mind and a saucy sense of humor. It’s about 290 pages long, so it will provide plenty of warm reading for the long winter nights ahead.
