Overview


BABEness is not about a woman's resemblance to a certain soft-drink-pedaling pop icon or her rank as a man magnet. It's the quality a woman exudes by virtue of being:

B. Bold, A. Authentic, B. Balanced, E. Erotic

HOW TO BE A BABE is an enlightening and entertaining guide to becoming a BABE - that is, the sort of woman who gets what she wants and wants what she gets, in and out of bed. In her psychologically sound but sensually graphic style, Dr. Joy Davidson answers the sex and relationship questions that haunt women.

This is every woman's guide to living large -- kicking obstacles out of the way and loving oneself enough to love others with passion, integrity, and good sense. It stems from Dr. Joy's belief that desire is more than what we feel on the way to the bedroom; it's the spark that ignites our very lives. Embracing our sexuality and our power is an art form - and learning to express ourselves without getting stalled in self-defeating relationships is a practical, learnable skill. This book is about excelling in the art of sex, sensuality, self-love, and serious relationships.

As evidenced by the success of "Sex in the City" and "Bridget Jones' Diary", women the world over are aching to become BABEs. This book shows them how!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this case, being a "babe" isn't about being cute and objectified-far from it. Licensed sex therapist and Playgirl columnist Davidson defines babe-ness with four words: Balance, Authenticity, Boldness and Eroticism. Then, in this intentionally sassy volume, she offers a series of step-by-step chapters showing you how to attain BABE status. The object of her advice is not to win someone else's affection, but rather to get the sex life you want and deserve. The book is fun, friendly and flippant, peppered with interactive quizzes and exercises and frequent "Babe Boosters" (little pearls of wisdom meant to help readers become a babe). Certain nuggets miss the mark-one Babe Booster reminds readers, "Don't pretend you like kung-fu movies to snare a guy if that's really not your speed-the charade will leave you empty." That's true, but it's not a trap most women fall into. But overall this is readable and modern, and likely to give most readers at least a little boost to their sexual chutzpah.
