Deep Throat is the book adaptation of the movie of the same name. The movie was such a phenomenon that they were trying to cash in any way they could and I guess a dirty book seemed like a great idea. It is written by D.M. Perkins and he had his work cut out for him. The movie was just an hour long and all of the dialogue could fit in a brochure. All in all, he did a pretty good job.

I first read this book when I was a teenager stealing porn from my step-father. I was happy to buy my own copy from the excellent blog, Pop Sensation. If you like vintage books of a sleazy nature, you will love that blog.

The plot to the book is that Linda Lovelace is a girl who has never experienced an orgasm. After consulting with a sex doctor, she discovers her clitoris in located in her throat. She can now orgasm while giving blowjobs and much wackiness ensues.

Well, some wackiness ensues. Linda becomes a nurse therapist and uses her oral talents to help other sexually dysfunctional people overcome their own bizarre problems. This is the highlight of the book as Linda tackles difficult and perplexing problems that can be solved with oral sex.

Unfortunately for the reader, this phase comes to an end for Linda as she becomes unsatisfied with fun challenging sexual encounters and decides what she really needs is love. She takes a short detour and makes a porn movie about her life (OMG, so that is where the movie comes from!) before finally realizing that what a woman really needs in order to be happy is to be married.

Yeah. Now that you finally found your clit, Linda, you need to get married. Maybe the sexual revolution hadn’t caught up to porn yet, I don’t know.

I do want to say that this was a funny book. Sex scenes were more like sketch comedy scenes with an emphasis on the weirdness and inherent problem solving of the situation. Quite a few times I laughed out loud which is always welcome when reading porn. The book also discusses popular household brands which always feels extra naughty when reading a porn book. It was certainly a different time.

I also want to add that book is much more entertaining than the movie.

I give it Three Pam Griers out of Five.
