Overview

Creativity is valued like a magical gift or talent that either you have or don't, but Courtney Smith Kramer argues that everyone is creative in their own unique way. This book, in a very cheeky but fun and thought-provoking way, explores 21 reasons why creativity is like sex, and why, if you're human, you have something interesting and special to offer human kind.

Each reason headlines a chapter that is full of personal anecdotes, facts, insights and stuff about sex you most likely never knew. From the boardroom to the bedroom, this book is full of wisdom that is meant to inspire, make you laugh and leave you saying "that's what she said."

What is creativity anyway?

I’ve always loved making people laugh, and the process of drawing and writing. This is artistry, and artistry and creativity are sisters – related with the same DNA, but not at all the same. Not everyone is an artist. Not everyone loves to write or draw. But everyone has what’s behind artistry, something that’s way more important – imagination and curiosity.

My Dad has a Ph.D. in Economics, and he taught me a lot about how to be creative with managing my money from a young age. In 7th grade, I begged my parents for a pair of lavender Gloria Vanderbilt jeans (#childofthe80s), which cost about $60 in 1982.

They were SICK. I needed them. I loved them. My very existence depended on those purple jeans. Instead of buying them for me, my parents gave me a clothing allowance of $150 that I was free to spend any way I wanted. Wait… what?! You better believe buying a new pair of $60 jeans was off the table. I was forced to find a new solution. I went to a local consignment shop and found a used pair for $10, and came home with not just the jeans, but an entire bag full of used clothing! This lesson taught me really fast that I needed to get creative if I wanted something outside my reach.

Every single person in this world possesses imagination and curiosity… Which makes every human creative in their own way.
