Still trying to locate “the one”? Whip out this little book and start the interview process. Nothing says love like an intrusive interview. Mostly, these seem to be multiple choice conversation starters. The questions are pretty superficial and just wandering through this book I kept thinking that I wouldn’t choose any of the given answers. In all fairness, I haven’t dated since Reagan was elected, so what do I know?
Bottom line: if you need this book to talk to your date, I think you can safely eliminate this person as a potential love match.
What Girls Want to Know About Boys
Unger and Berman
Figuring out boys evidently is a topic for the ages. I remember my teenage daughter asking me why they are so stupid and I remember asking my mom the same thing back in the 1970s. So, here are all the questions you want to ask. Too bad a good chunk of the answers are pretty awful. In this book you can learn:
Wow, I had no idea. Good thing I am a modern woman and that attitude isn’t around anymore. Oh wait, yes it is.
P.S. This is the second advice book we have had from Art Unger. Don’t be a “square” let Art school you in the finer points of cool. Continue reading
The Petting Generation
This is what I like to call “nonfiction erotica.” I am not sure that is really a thing, but I am running into enough examples to make me think so. This is probably the best example of true stories or case studies that detail (and I mean DETAIL) the finer nuances of making out. Our author has a few other titles that you probably won’t want to miss, such as: Sex Behavior of the Homosexual, Sex Behavior of the Lesbian, and last, but not least, Man to Man: A Report on Homosexuality.
I couldn’t find any credentials for our author, so maybe this is also self-reported “data.” I am not sure that today’s audience would even know what petting and necking entail. Remember, I am rather old and those terms weren’t used in my formative years. (Get off my lawn!)
Obviously this needs updating and some solid first hand accounts. Anyone volunteering?
