My Dad Wrote A Porno

Sounds terrible right? Imagine if your dad wrote a dirty book! Well, Jamie Morton’s dad did. He was trying to capitalize on the success of 50 Shades of Grey, and his mom isn’t very happy about it. Jamie and his friends James Cooper and Alice Levine sit down to read a chapter a week of the dirty book his dad wrote. I listened to about ten minutes of the first episode and I was already laughing out loud. It’s not gross dirty, kind of sweet and naive but hilarious. The way his dad describes things will seriously have you howling.
