About this Item

As-new unread trade paperback, but with a three-inch soft diagonal crease to bottom corner of front wrap. Number line complete, 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2 -- the first printing. A non-fiction look, based on interviews, at current dating rituals. (Well, "current" meaning 1997 . . . in England.) Not surprisingly, the author found women believe their non-verbal cues and signals expressing interest or non-interest are perfectly clear, while men complained they can never tell where they stand, because women will never say. 298 pp. including index.

About this title


Women's lack of sexual assertiveness, particularly early in relationships, is one of the few areas to remain relatively untouched by feminist ideology. This work reveals the effects this passivity in courtship and relationships has on women's sense of themselves, their self-image, concern with their appearance, and their disgruntlement with men. Looking at female fantasy, date rape, masochism, male responses, the media, and drawing on literature, interviews and research, the book exposes the women's magazine industry, and finally suggests ways in which women can take control of their courtship rituals to become more assertive in all areas of their lives.
