How to meet him, understand him, and love him
Rajouane
1976

Evidently, it is a LOT of work to get men interested in sex. This comprehensive manual of nearly 200 pages details all the skills and tricks you can use to get a man interested in you. Advice includes how to seduce a man, one night stands, where to meet men (short answer: everywhere), dressing sexy, and super detailed sex advice. Best part: Awesome photos of brooding men in their natural habitat of the office, pool hall, film studio, barn, shower, museums, and parks. They really are everywhere!

Sample advice (You might want to take notes):

Wash dishes naked
Give your man a massage
Take off your clothes
Take off his clothes
Go fast
Go slow

I will leave it to you to continue your research.

Death to the patriarchy!
