The Style Guy
O’Brien was GQ magazine’s fashion columnist until 2015. (He evidently blasted GQ in an interview and resigned.) His advice column talked about everything from fashion advice to etiquette. None of it is particularly timeless. I wasn’t too impressed, but I am not the target market. Maybe it was cool in 2000, but jokes about porn and other sexually charged topics fall flat. This particular book hadn’t left the shelves in a decade, so I think we can safely retire it.
Ladies! Your problems are SOLVED with this handy guide. Thankfully, a wonderful man has stepped up to give the you all the info you need to clear up all those problems with your husband.
Did you know your problems stem from not putting yourself out there enough for your family? (You are so selfish!)
Have you let yourself “go”? (Check your hair and clothes right now!)
Are you a nag? (He works so hard to keep you happy, you ungrateful shrew!)
Quit your complaining, shut up and get back to your “natural” womanly instincts. The Lord wants it this way.
Submitter: Here is another sexy title that is woefully out of date. I cringed when I saw the title of chapter one: “Today’s woman faces a sexual crisis.” Today meaning 1965. That’s almost 50 years ago. Did I find this book in a women’s studies program at a college library? Nope. Two copies were at my local public library.
Holly: Whyyyy? Someone please enlighten me as to why two copies of this are necessary anywhere, let alone a public library? Although, I’m a little curious about my “sex profile” in Chapter 2. I’d also love to read about “penis envy” in Chapter 5 (which of course comes right after “What does every woman want?”). And then, in Chapter 10, you’ve got to know about how “Marital sex can be a joy.” (You know, despite what you may have heard.) You know what, though? We can read about those things if we so choose in many, many more current sources than this. Upgrade, please!
