This time it's personal . . .
Cynthia Heimel was oppressed, just like you, by loneliness and indecision and love and lust and high heels. She decided to have a wonderful time anyway, but it hurt. From the crucible of her agony she wrote the runaway hit, 'Sex Tips For Girls', and everyone (except Christian fundamentalists) thought it was funny and wise. Actually, it was a perfect book, especially when it told you to get into bed upside down.
Cynthia smiled wanly at her success, because frankly the oppression continued. It was even worse. So then from the crucible of that agony she wrote 'Advanced Sex Tips For Girls', another perfect book, something to giggle at whether you were brokenhearted or warily in love again.
In this book we take a tour of the decades that informed our sexual politics. Using Cynthia's own life in particular, we learn why we are the way we are and how we can understand the Book of Love.
Should you date a man who's on Prozac? Why is "single" a buzzword that makes us feel like killing ourselves? What's so funny about a man in a dress? Why was the panty girdle the straw that broke the back of the patriarchy? What if your son gets married on MTV? Is the Backlash over? Why does the theory of evolution dictate that every human must get laid as much as humanly possible? And just wait until you read 'The Hobag Manifesto', which will join 'The Female Eunuch' and 'The Second Sex' in the pantheon of feminist literature and will make you die laughing.
You'll love this book. It will become your new best friend.
