Great book on immigration

For anyone interested in learning more about today's critical immigration issues, here's a book that delves a little deeper into things: Erotic Journeys: Mexican Immigrants and Their Sex Lives.

The reviews received from other "intellectuals" are good for a few laughs. Here's a bit from Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo (no I didn't make up that name), who has learned from this book "how mind-numbing employment regimes lead to the taylorization of sex." Damn you conservatives, if only you would let these people come out of the shadows, so they could be free from taylorized sex! Even more laughable when you consider Taylor's management system involved training personnel to effectively, efficiently reach their goals. Although we shouldn't expect such an intellectual to believe anything good could come from the field of business.

Another reviewer states this book "demolishes every binary opposition, ethnic stereotype, and assumption about the sexual experiences of Mexican immigrants." Um, yeah. Thanks to this book, I no longer need fear having binary opposition about the sexual experiences of Mexican immigrants. Whatever the hell that means. And all those ethnic stereotypes I believed about the sexual experiences of Mexican immigrants, such as... um... well I can't really think of any, but I'm sure this book destroys them all the same.

I can't wait to reach chapter 2, Beyond the Hymen. I'm not sure if that's arousing or disgusting, but I'm excited to find out.

This is the kind of nonsense academics write and of course believe writing such an interesting niche book reveals they are terribly smart. Actually, you don't need a book to learn about the sex lives of mexican immigrants, you just need to watch something like Latina Anal Heartbreakers. It costs less than the book, and the review for Latina Anal Heartbreakers is much less pretentious. (If you really need a content warning for that last link, you're not too bright.)
