Big Boom is an ex-pimp, player, and hustler, according to the back of the book. He knows the games men play. He even got an endorsement from Steve Harvey as one who “made the biggest turnaround in a person’s life that I’ve ever known.” Well, that sounds pretty good. Relationship advice from someone who used to work in the sex industry, but who now is an upstanding citizen in a happy marriage.
The title kind of grosses me out. Does that make me a prude? I thought it was funny at first, but then I started leafing through the book. Big Boom constantly reminds his female readers to keep their legs closed. Don’t “accept invitations for a late-night stayover unless you are ready to part your legs” and “don’t lighten up, tighten up.” Eww!
This is my favorite quote in the whole book: “If a woman breaks the rule and has sex with a man the first night, she should wake up the next morning before he does and freshen her makeup. she should put on a pair of high heels and her housecoat, and get her legs looking good.”
It’s not a bad book for a library to have, necessarily. It’s just very plainly written, so it belongs in a library that knows its audience well.
