Reviewed by Jessyca Garcia for Readers' Favorite

Sex and the American Male by Jay Williams has absolutely nothing to do with sex, but everything to do with advertising and the messages it sends you. As Williams states in his clever cliff-notes: "The author attempted to show how America has become saturated with inane advertising, has been battered into submission of mediocrity in the pursuit of greedful materialism and has lost its soul in its futile attempt to find happiness in material possessions."

I honestly was not sure what to expect when I started reading Sex and the American Male. I thought it was going to be a book about men, their sex lives, and what they really expect. I definitely was not expecting a book with a good message about people and the materialistic stuff that they over value in life. Williams ingeniously titled the book differently just so people will pick it up. My first thought was what did I start reading?! I was pleasantly surprised that the book was actually funny. Williams does have a point of there being too many people finding happiness with their material possessions. People are forgetting what really matters in life and are becoming brainwashed, thinking they need brand name stuff.

Overall, I liked Sex and the American Male. William’s character Zach is a likeable guy. I cannot wait to see the title of the next book Williams will write and what it will actually be about. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read humor or who has been brainwashed by advertising messages.
