Read in July, 2007

This was a fast, but interesting read. Levy comments on how sexuality has been repackaged to women in such a way that one starts to believe that behaving like "men" or aspiring to be like men is something for young women to aspire to. Like engaging in promiscuous sex, going to strip clubs and watching porn. But the joke is on us. For example, somehow, Joe Francis has managed to convince young women that baring their bodies on a "girls gone wild" video translates to a a new form of feministic expression, or at least that's the opinion of some of the women featured in this book.
