About the Book

Whether we'd admit it or not, most of us have been caught out at least once in our adult lives by our bodily functions. And everyone has a hideous story about a 'friend' who has found themselves in a … sticky situation.
The stories in this collection have all found their way to the author first-hand, making for one of the most shameful and debasing anthologies you will ever read.
From office nightmares to dates from hell, and from moments when it just can't wait, to incidents with strangers, this book is guaranteed to have you crossing your legs in anguish.
