"Surprisingly, the book that truly celebrates the single woman was written four decades ago. Helen Gurley Brown's Sex and the Single Girl, (first) published in 1962, "torpedoes one of the most absurd (if universal) myths of our time: that every girl must be married." -New York Times, 10/12/02

A nice single woman has no sex life? Think again, says Helen Gurley Brown. Barricade Books is proud to put back in print the bombshell best-seller that took the giggles out of girl talk-and thoroughly shocked the prudes. In Sex and the Single Girl, Cosmo's leading lady, Helen Gurley Brown, tells women how to fill their lives with romance and delectable men. Sexual attitudes may have changed, but the art of being a woman has not. Here's how to meet men, sweep them off their feet, and even slip a ring on the right man's finger.

The pleasures of flirting, enjoying affairs from beginning to end, finding men where you might not think to look, the delights and drawbacks of married men, the frustration of little-boy men and Don Juans, all are covered in this book that tells women how to live their own life and love it.

Sex and the Single Girl was a phenomenon when it was first published. It stayed on best-seller lists everywhere for a year. It has been published in 28 countries and has been translated into 16 languages, including Japanese. The book was also made into a movie starring Natalie Wood and Tony Curtis.
