Janet was more than a beautiful woman. She was white heat and surging womanhood all dolled up in a body like that of a French movie star. She was as wanton as a Polynesian dancer and as demanding as a nympho. Beth Danson was about twenty-five and, besides her deep auburn-brown hair and lovely face, she boasted an equally attractive body. He found himself captivated by the ...more

For sometime I was searching for "so-bad-that-its-good" type old school pulpy sci-fi novels and a few days ago I started this book "The Sex Life of The Gods".
description Like none of you ever read an erotica before!

But by god what an awful preposterous book! Upto 30% of the book all the 'sci' of sci-fi I got was just a character who after an accident forgot who he was. This book is so disrespectful towards women that if it was written in today's era, it would have caused a mass hysteresis among feminists.

1. I give it a five instead of a four because of all the non-SF buffs who just had to read this and then rate it by whatever arbitrary standards they have for other genres. It is what it is. A 50 cent SF novel from the early '60's and nothing more. It is an enjoyable (yeah, somewhat sexist) romp that caters to its fan of the day. Surprisingly, this would not be the typical female reader of 50+ years later. Go figure. Here's the deal - I don't go ripping on Chick Lit by other authors and judge it ...more

"Hell, a lot of women lost their men for some reason or another, but they accustomed, they altered their lives. If a man dropped the reins, some other guy should pick them up. It was only natural." [Women=sexy, sexy mares]

"He stared moodily into the dark liquid in his coffee cup and wondered where it would all end." [Amusing in context, but part of the 21st century human experience, I suppose. I know I've done it.]

Finally read a trashy 60s sci-fi novel! Though I can't recommend the experience to

This book reflects the science fiction writing of the early 1960's. The shelves of bookstores were filled with pulpy novels that were striving to get readers to choose them. A little erotica never hurt the sales.

I read this book when I was a high schooler. The cheap novellas and double novels were fodder for me. I consumed them and this was one. The characters reflect 60's society and need to be read with that in mind. This book was a slightly different take on human-alien interaction from an a

Shelves: vintage-pulp, erotica
Atmospheric, and somewhat of a surprise. The sex I mean. I just didn't expect references to sex with quite that much vigour to them. Nothing phenomenally new or wonderful here, but there is something about losing yourself in a vintage/pulp type novel.

Good, for what it is.

Ugh, those robotic voices were more than I could take. I thought this book might be good in a campy sort of way but it's not even bad in a funny way. It's just awful.

Would have given it 4 stars but the end was too abrupt. Pretty rad story about amnesia and sexy aliens regardless.

So this was how erotica and sci-fi were written in the 60's. I must admit that I somehow enjoyed it.

This book is packed with the likes of inter-planetary travel, sex, aliens, amnesia, sex, fighting, marital affairs, more sex stuff, and a really abrupt ending...
