There’s been a rule of thumb in Ireland the last thousand years - if it’s something you enjoy, it’s a sin. And if it’s anything to do with SEX, it’s a mortal sin.

Here, in one uncensored package, is everything you’ve ever wanted to know about sex and love in Ireland but were afraid to ask for fear of a clatter on the ear – From Abstinence to Virginity via Confession, Clingfilm, Croke Park and the Ballybunion Bachelor Festival ... what more could you ask?

Find out who shouldn’t have, but did; why there were lots of ‘fallen women’ but no ‘fallen men’; and the extreme measures taken to stop us thinking about our wobbly bits and return to singing about the Famine.

Colin Murphy is the author of The Most Famous Irish People You’ve Never Heard Of and co-author of the bestselling ‘Feckin’ collection (The O’Brien Press). His début historical novel Boycott (Brandon) was published in 2012 to great acclaim. 

Donal O'Dea is a senior Art Director at one of Ireland’s leading advertising agencies.
