Sleeping with Soldiers

Sleeping With Soldiers:
In Search of the Macho Man
Daniell
1984

 

Submitter: [This book] has not moved off our shelves for years. The language is dated and the topic eyebrow-raising. Despite the author having received two National Endowment for the Arts grants, this book has not aged well.

 

Holly: There was certainly a place for this in feminist collections back in the day. It got mostly good reviews on Amazon, so it wasn’t the worst choice in 1984. If it is languishing on the shelves untouched for years, though, I can’t see keeping it. I do love the cover!

  • They didn’t bother to even take the price sticker off! Half price, $7.50!

  • You sure are hung up about sex, aren’t you? 🙂 You just had that Smut Peddlers (by James Kilpatrick of 60 Minutes fame) a few weeks ago

  • The 80s were a very interesting time. I still have my copy.

  • I like the cover guy’s half-price sticker tattoo.

  • those in search of the macho man may also wish to consider sleeping with construction workers and indian chiefs

    • Eh, you could always get a room at the Y. You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal, you can do whatever you feel…

      It reminds me of the time that I went on a high school trip where we stayed at a youth hostel in SF’s tenderloin district. Top floor was a resident motel. Very eye opening!

      You could get yourself clean, have a good meal… and hang out on fire escapes with interesting characters. WHERE WERE OUR CHAPERONES?!?! Oh, doing the same thing…

  • I wonder how one gets an NEA grant for the purpose of getting one’s groove back.

  • For a while I haven’t been able to zoom on the pages. All I get is a black screen, and that little circle moving as if something is downloading, but it never does.

  • Dear Second Wave Feminism, being attracted to more stereotypically masculine blokes is not a betrayal of feminism. Just find a nice one that respects you. Love, Third Wave Feminism.
