He likes anal sex, with himself, and reading the opening chapter in which he reminisces about inserting the banana, the broom handle, the cucumber and the family's ice cream scooper, my eyes widened, while I thought wow, here's a guy Kevin who's had more up his ass than I have. Though he writes another chapter professing, "I Was A Teenage Homosexual," it's plain to see that his bent is really towards women, and he manages to have sex with four of them within a two year span, which is pretty good, no? Keck, a talented poet, has a deep Southern charm like THE DUKES OF HAZZARD or SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT, and he knows how to spin out a story. Nearly always he ends the tale before you're tired of him. I hope that OEDIPUS WRECKED is only the first of many Sedaris-esque memoirs from him.
Whether it involves stealing his own mother's vibrator, taping himself masturbating (only to have his family accidentally view the evidence), or nearly going broke as he wastes gobs of time on phone sex lines, Keck's many sexual adventures are a riot. These are not for the faint of heart.
One big thing I enjoyed about this collection is the author's honest, straight male perspective. He writes about things many other guys are probably thinking (or doing behind closed doors), yet few are talking about. I find that quite refreshing.
