The exotic side of the Orient has always fascinated both Western men and women who were fortunate enough to visit there. But it has been the erotic side of Oriental life that has resulted in large numbers of Western men, beginning with Marco Polo, spending years or the rest of their lives in the Far East. In this provocative peek behind the bamboo and silken curtains of China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines, the author [an old Asian Hand] details the physical and cultural elements that have traditionally made Oriental girls the epitome of femininity and unbridled sexuality-and given them advantages over typical Western women when it comes to attracting and pleasing men.. He has also included some valuable advice to Western women on how to overcome their disadvantages.

Boyé Lafayette De Mente has been involved with Japan, China, Korea and Southeast Asia since the late 1940s as a member of a U.S. intelligence agency, student, journalist, editor and author working out of Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, and Singapore . He is a graduate of Jochi University in Tokyo, and The American Institute for Foreign Trade (in 1953), now Thunderbird School of Global Management, in Glendale, Arizona, USA. De Mente wrote the first ever books on the Japanese way of doing business (Japanese Etiquette and Ethics in Business in 1959 and How to Do Business in Japan in 1962), and was the first to introduce the now commonly used Japanese terms wa, nemawashi, kaizen, tatemae-honne, shibui, sabi and wabi to the outside business world! His 70-plus other books run the gamut from language learning to the night-time "pink" trades in Japan, the role of bars, cabarets and geisha houses in business, the sensual nature of Oriental cultures, male-female relations, and understanding and coping with the Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mexican mindset in business and social situations. One of his latest book: THE CHINESE MIND--Understanding Traditional Chinese Beliefs and Their Influence on Contemporary Culture.
