Sex Instructions for Farmers is a light-hearted guide to finding and keeping love for that stalwart of the Irish rural community - the bachelor farmer. This man, while a prince behind his plough, who can freely discuss international problems, wilts before the female form. First published in 1980, chapters include sage advice on how to `prepare the soil', how to sow the seeds of a fruitful relationship and how to reap the bounty from his labours. Filled with pearls of wisdom, such as `bottom pinching is unsporting' and `the practice of changing one's socks once a month will in future be regarded as insufficient', this humorous piece of nostalgia may still prove useful to some modern men!
