Sexy charm

A review of Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed? by Liz Prince

He: Liz? She: Hmm? He: Will you snuggle with me? She: If you stop farting. He: Nevermind. Now, if you don't see the humor is that little exchange, then Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed? a collection of comic strips by Liz Prince may not be for you. The comics focus on Liz and Kevin, a co-habitating young couple who are saying and doing the sorts of things that only the young and in love will say and do. And it does have a goofy sort of charm, even if an occasional comic may be a little risque for some readers. That's not to say there aren't problems with the book. The art comes off as pretty crude, and seems practically unfinished with parts that appear to be rough drafts rather than completed art. That picture of the cover art is as good as it gets. That may or may not explain why the book was printed on such tiny pages. And at 71 pages, it's not really a book that's likely to be lingered over (although there were some comics I kept flipping back to). Like I said, it has goofy charm. So, even though Valentine's Day has already passed, this may give you a few ideas about keeping the fun in your relationship (or let you know what you could be missing).  Rest assured, there's more snuggling than sex, more kissing than crudity, more badinage than bare-naked and more fun than anything. It probably won't change your world (or save a bad relationship) but it just might give you a smile or two. And for you foodies out there, may I suggest starting out with the corn on the cob kiss? What's that? Sorry, you'll have to read the book.
