So I love reading books like these because they remind me of reading Cosmo in high school-- and I usually walk away with one or two interesting ideas about how to be loving to my man. My favorite thing about this book was its emphasis on making your partner feel appreciated-- something that I think is truly at the heart of the situations Sydney Biddle Barrows probably saw in her career as the Mayflower Madam.

That said, this is kind of a horrible book that sometimes made my jaw drop with its sexi

If you have any feminist proclivities, please close your eyes: I would recommend this book to any of my girlfriends having man trouble. The book IS written by a brothel madam so I'm not going to reference anything specifically, but I bet she hits on your particular issue. It's part how-to, part psychological analysis of male/female roles and interactions (this was written in 1996 but a bulk of her theories still hold up), and part FAQ. She writes what she knows and she can be pretty funny. The p ...more

I won't be so dramatic as to say that this book changed my life, but it certainly changed my lifestyle. I read it as a teenage girl and promptly passed it around to my friends.

Instead, this book talks about beauty tips, how to make the most of your natural appeal, and how to interact with a l ...more

Starts out a fascinating window into a curious exciting world...quickly degenerates into something sordid, gross, and cheap, that still masquerades as a prim and gossipy girl-chat. Ew.

“George Burns tells a wonderful story about the one time in his life (so he says) he cheated on his beloved Gracie. He was so disgusted and ashamed of himself that he went out and bought her the most beautiful diamond necklace he could find. Gracie was pretty sure she knew what was wrong, but she accepted the necklace and said nothing. Several years passed. One night, she and George were out to dinner and an acquaintance complimented her on her lovely necklace. As George stood there, aghast, she replied, 'Thank you. I wish George would cheat on me again so I could get the matching earrings.” 5 likes
