Book Description 
  
ăThe relationship of sexuality and humor is a recurrent theme in the collections at The Kinsey Institute. . . . The holdings contain vast numbers of silly greeting cards, naughty objects, cartoons, jokes, and toys. It is clear that much of the collection is humorous in some way, and that these pieces are likely to be some of the most memorable and engaging.ä ÷from the Foreword by Betsy Stirratt  
  
From an "interview" with "Dr. Frieda Tingle, the world's leading expert on sex" to essays on "Humor in the Eight-Pagers" and "Gershon Legman, Lord of the Lewd," this collection of words and images showcases the various aspects of humor and sexuality. A special exhibition of "Sex and Humor" has been put together by The Kinsey Institute from its vast collection of silly greeting cards, naughty objects, cartoons, artwork, jokes, and toys. The goal is that the essays, the book as a whole, and the exhibition will serve as catalysts for further discussion about the nature of humor and its relationship to human sexual behavior and expression.
