Now Available from Black Bird Press:Mythology of Pussy and Dick

This book empowered me. I didn’t know I had that much power!—Young sister

It helped me step up my game!—Young brother

Thank you, thank you, for writing this. I am going to make my son and daughter read it.—A Mother


of Pussy and Dick


Healthy Psychosocial


Marvin X

Warning: Contains explicit language

And youth who otherwise don't read, do read this book and even squabble over ownership, as if it were black gold!


We are fortunate to witness such openness and honesty, though it makes the smug uncomfortable in their fake comforts….

--Lil Joe

Mythology of Pussy and Dick is a compilation of everything Marvin X has written over the past 40 years on psychosocial sexuality in America and the world. There are those who will miss this opportunity to receive wisdom from our brother because of the language he uses to describe the male and female anatomy, his perceived objectification of women and men….
