Samhain's "OMG THE SEX0R!!!!111" warning tags

Samhain Publishing's PSAs about the degree of sensuality in its books are sometimes just too funny.

"Warning: Explicit, hanging from the chandeliers style sex!"

I'm sold.

Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, mild violence, a little light “tie me up, tie me down”, and a lot of sword fighting.

Since when is "sword fighting" something to be concerned about? Unless this is an euphemism for hot boys doing each other? Sold.

Warning: This book contains violence, unruly Faeries, scary sea creatures, evil queens, graphic sexual content and language.

"Evil queens"? Are we talking about temperamental drag queens fighting over the last copy of an exclusive edition of a Barbra Streisand CD? "Unruly Faeries"? Must be them fighting drag queens. "Scary sea creatures"? Bummer. I'm expecting Nemo to show up. Sold.

If you are not pleased about my upcoming reviews of these books, hey, don't look at me. Blame the publisher for stocking up the alcohol on their website updates day.

My favorite:
"Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, hot nekkid man-love."

It's informative AND affirms the publisher is a supporter of the "hot boys doing each other" genre.

I think it's hilarious! I love the tongue-in-cheekiness of it.
