“Warning: this book contains a back-to-back feast of frank, funny and adorably inappropriate intergenerational wisdom.”
Tara Moss, author of The Fictional Woman and Speaking Out
“Law School is part sex-ed, part life-coaching, part-comedy double act. Benjamin Law and his mother Jenny are not always the most wise (or appropriate) of agony aunts, but they’re easily the most honest, heart-warming and unflinchingly hilarious. The Margaret and David of romance and sex advice.”
Lawrence Leung, comedian, writer and creator of TV show Lawrence Leung’s Choose Your Own Adventure
“Law School is lascivious and literary, simultaneously. It is incredibly enlightening and chock-full of sexual epiphanies.”
Tracey Spicer, newsreader and journalist
“If I’m watching a movie with my mom and two people start kissing each other for longer than three seconds she’ll yell at me to change the channel. I can’t imagine bringing up the idea of sex to her, much less discussing whether fucking a grapefruit is a good idea. But here comes mother-son duo Jenny and Ben with their hilarious, honest and endearing relationship. Okay, we get it. You're SOOOO much better than the rest of us. Read their damn book already.”
Ronny Chieng, comedian and senior correspondent for The Daily Show
Do you accidentally get turned-on while watching a nature documentary? Are you dating someone whose tattoos are the worst but you’re having the best sex of your life? Are you feeling emasculated because your girlfriend has had more one-night stands than you? Never fear: the world’s first mother-son sex and relationships advice duo is here to save you from yourself.
The longest-running regular column in The Lifted Brow, the ‘Law School’ column has been offering stern warnings, enthusiastic encouragement and sage (and not-so-sage) wisdom to desperate lovers and sexual adventurists alike in every issue of our magazine since 2011. This collection brings the best of ‘Law School’ out of the shadows of the literary back pages and into an excruciatingly funny and semi- explicit illustrated book of advice you never knew you needed.
Hilarious, rude and surprisingly heart-warming, Law School covers the practical and ethical dilemmas of sex and relationships from two generational and cultural perspectives. Ben and his mum Jenny challenge the way we think and talk about the intimate, and all in funny, earnest and blunt banter. Their advice will either save your sex and love life, or ruin you forever.
