Hilarious How To guides

DIY sex toys, cat language skills and more

There's long been a market in self-improvement literature, but some How To guides cater to a truly niche audience. For instance, who out there has yearned to make their breasts larger through sheer mental ability alone? Bust Enlargement With Total Mind Power is the book for you. Fancy crafting your own bedroom accessories? Make Your Own Sex Toys contains diagrams for no less than 50 DIY accoutrements.

From pet communication to office defecation, here are our favourite oddball DIY reads. They're not mature, they're not highbrow but they sure are funny...
