In the beginning, there was The Average American Male.
Maxim called it "pure filth."
Even Penthouse called it "appalling."
The New York Times called it "the literary love child of Neil LaBute, Judy Blume, and Eminem."
Now, Chad Kultgen's unforgettable antihero is back—this time as a married man.
I can feel something hot twisting and burning in the pit of my stomach. For a fleeting moment I think back to a time when I was with Casey, my girlfriend before Alyna....I tried to initiate something by grabbing her tit and kissing her when we walked through her front door. She turned to me and said something about how our relationship didn't always have to be about sex. I remember how much I wanted to smash something when she said that, how much I wanted to scream in her face that our relationship was only about sex....Relationships between men and women are only about sex. The rest of the sh*t is incidental.
“’50 Shades of Grey’ for the 30-something male. It is crass, lewd and politically incorrect, but also mindlessly fun and engaging.”
“Chad Kultgen is the epitome of everything that is lewd in this world.”
Praise for The Average American Male: “Since its publication in 2007, [Average American Male] has become an unofficial, if somewhat undercover bible for a certain strain of Xbox-playing, Maxim-collecting Gen Y males.”
Praise for The Avergae American Male: “An appalling book we couldn’t put down.”
The Average American Marriage, the long-awaited sequel to Chad Kultgen’s much debated, always controversial The Average American Male, is a matter-of-fact foray into the male mind and sexual fantasy.
Now married with children, Kultgen's lewd and sex-obsessed narrator once again offers up his deep (and not so deep) thoughts on love, marriage, kids, and (naturally) sex: from birthday sex to interns to parenting, The Average American Male looks upon the institution of marriage with the same deadpan smirk he has brought to the rest of his sex-addled, perennially disaffected life.
