I've been a fan of Evany's funny, crafty, gifty, pop culture-y blog for some time, so when I heard that McSweeney's had published a book she'd written, I rushed to find out more.The book turns out to be an easy-to-read little reference tome called The Secret Language of Sleep: A Couple's Guide to the Thirty-Nine Positions. It's a sort of Kama Sutra of sleeping positions, and given that everyone I know seems to complain more about the dearth of slumber in their lives than the dearth of you-know-what, it's an appropriate book for our times.
The positions vary from Melting Spoons ("Classic Spooning for codependents") to Starfish and Conch ("the preferred position for couples who fight well together"), but if you're wondering which position is recommended for you and your special someone, there's an online quiz (of course).
I'm sure you're dying to know Rusty's and my results, so here you go.
Pinching Koala and Tree couples experience a kind of super symbiosis that other sorts of couples (especially vegan couples) only dream of. The harmony that comes from this kind of pairing would be revolting if it weren’t so inspirational, which is why Pinching Koalas and Trees are often surrounded by friends and would-be friends, and their schedules are often booked months in advance.Try not to be too jealous. And we're already booked up till June, but we're taking reservations in August, after we take a month off to recover.
