Youth in Revolt(ing Cocks)



My mother-in-law sent us Youth in Revolt because she thought I would find it funny. It's a movie out now with Michael Cera, who seems to be in everything these days; I don't mind that. I loved Arrested Development.

I started the book a few days ago and it's funny, but I have one major question: Are teenage boys really that obsessed with their penises? The main character's concern is constant, bordering on pathological. Dick jokes galore and other things not appropriate for a family-friendly blog!

I need to know if it's an accurate portrayal. I'm a girl; I don't have any sons; and my husband won't give me a straight answer. Is it an exaggeration for comic effect or is this the way teenage boys (who grow up to be men) think?

If it's true, it sure does explain a lot.

My husband has always told me, "Whatever the worst you can imagine a boy is imagining..multiply it by ten and add sex." Sooo I guess it is true for some boys. He swears they're all the same until they find a good woman. LOL

a friend messaged me after reading this that it's like Portnoy's Complaint. That makes sense to me. But so does Kristi's husband!

I've never read the book or seen the flick, but to genuinely answer your query, yes.

Also, as much as I like Michael Cera, I think he needs to branch out from the whole "hilariously awkward teen" role.
