"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
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.
