How to Be a Babe: Overcome Your Romantic Obsessions and Other Obstacles to Having the Sex Life You Deserve!

Joy Davidson, Author Fair Winds Press (MA) $19.95 (216p) ISBN 978-1-59233-005-8
In this case, being a""babe"" isn't about being cute and objectified--far from it. Licensed sex therapist and Playgirl columnist Davidson defines babe-ness with four words: Balance, Authenticity, Boldness and Eroticism. Then, in this intentionally sassy volume, she offers a series of step-by-step chapters showing you how to attain BABE status. The object of her advice is not to win someone else's affection, but rather to get the sex life you want and deserve. The book is fun, friendly and flippant, peppered with interactive quizzes and exercises and frequent""Babe Boosters"" (little pearls of wisdom meant to help readers become a babe). Certain nuggets miss the mark--one Babe Booster reminds readers,""Don't pretend you like kung-fu movies to snare a guy if that's really not your speed--the charade will leave you empty."" That's true, but it's not a trap most women fall into. But overall this is readable and modern, and likely to give most readers at least a little boost to their sexual chutzpah.
