Kerry Cohen is a psychotherapist, but she doesn't write about teenage promiscuity as a detached observer; her own memoir Loose Girl vividly recounts her own immersion in self-degrading sex. The dirty little secrets of her book's title are not the troubling statistics on teenage pregnancy so often quoted in the media; instead, they are the painfully hidden practices of young girls who attempt to use sex to secure relationships with boys. As this book demonstrates with example after example, this impetuous strategy seldom works; in fact, it usually ends in ostracism and self-loathing. A powerful preemptive message.
