Some Reads for Valentine's Day?

Found these reads in Times Bookstore in Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur. Thought it'd be quite apt for Valentine's Day. According to reviews, the first one's funny, the second one is helpful for someone who needs tips for a new husband in 5 days...hmmm...
Title/Author: Asian Aphrodisiacs/Jerry Hopkins
Publisher: Periplus Editions/Berkeley Books Pte Ltd (31 Jan 2007)
Pages: 272
ISBN 13: 978-0794603960
Synopsis: "Tiger penis soup? Rhino horn on the oyster half shell? Give me a break!" So says bestselling author Jerry Hopkins as he meets the people, visits the places, and "road tests" dozens of Asia's most popular aphrodisiacs in the first definitive survey of the region's best and worst "turn-on's. Hopkins travels from Bangkok to Tokyo, Jakarta, Hong Kong and Kathmandu in search of the region's most exciting pick-me-ups. Along the way, he discovers that Asia was first in the development and prescription of aphrodisiacs, first in pornography and sex toys, and first in breast and penis enhancement surgery. In this exhaustively researched and often hilarious investigation of a subject that has held the world enthralled for thousands of years, the author discovers that Asia has been - and still is - in the lead when it comes to the promise of sexual enhancement.
