Meet the Author

Anna David is the author of the novels Party Girl (HarperCollins, 2007) and Bought (HarperCollins, 2009), and the editor of the anthology Reality Matters (HarperCollins, 2010). Her memoir about following the advice in Helen Gurley Brown’s 1962 book Sex and the Single Girl will be released in 2011.

Party Girl, which has been translated into Italian and Russian, is about a reckless 20-something who’s hired to write a column documenting her exploits just as she cleans up her act. The screen rights were purchased by Sony. Bought is a fictionalized version of an investigative piece David did for Details Magazine about prostitution in Hollywood. Reality Matters features essays about reality television shows by such writers as James Frey, Toby Young, Neil Strauss, and Jerry Stahl, among others; the book has been selected as course material for media studies and communications courses at universities across the country.

A professional member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT), Anna holds an Associate in Sex Education Certificate from The Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality and is the host of the upcoming Playboy Network show Swing. She was the sex and relationship expert on G4’s Attack of the Show for over three years and has been featured numerous times on The Today Show, Hannity, Red Eye (Fox News) and CNN’s Showbiz Tonight, as well as on various other programs on Fox News, NBC, MSNBC, CTV, MTV News, VH1 and E. Her Sirius radio show, Sex Files, was the network’s number-one specialty show, and Axe Body Spray, Date.com and Guthy-Renker are among the companies that have hired her for spokesperson jobs.

A contributor to The Daily Beast, Details and Maxim, Anna has been on staff at Premiere and Parenting, a fulltime freelancer for People, a contracted reporter for Us Weekly and a sex columnist for Razor. Her celebrity cover stories, first-person essays, and reported pieces have appeared in The New York Times, The LA Times, Vanity Fair, Cosmo, Redbook, Self, Stuff, TV Guide, Movieline, Women’s Health, Ocean Drive, Vegas, Esquire UK, Teen Vogue, Variety, LA Confidential, Tatler and Emmy, among others. One of her first-person sex stories for Playboy was made into the reality show pilot Better Luck Next Town for TBS.

    Not really sex advice... it's better than that.

    In the Introduction to this collection of essays revolving around sex, Anna David reveals that the pieces presented here were written for a now-defunct magazine (some were published, some weren't). I, for one, am glad she decided to dust these off. While some of the essays show their age (pro-tip: mentally change "Friendster" to "Facebook" while reading chapter 3), there is still a lot of value to be found here, making it more than worth the asking price.

    David is extremely forthright and personal in these essays; however, those looking to be titillated might want to look elsewhere. Though confessional in parts, she skips most of the lurid details as they aren't really central to the thrust (sorry) of each piece. What she does reveal is "shameless" in the most basic sense, one which she declares as a mission statement of sorts in the Introduction, which I urge you not to skip over.

    Beyond that, this book is quite interesting as a record of the world of dating and sex in America in the first decade of the 21st century. This is a very boots-on-the-ground (and occasionally, boots-in-the-air) account of the neuroses, minefields, and missteps which plague us all to some extent. There is both advice and humor to be had here (much more of the latter), but the real takeaway is that navigating these areas is tricky business for anyone - despite being a certified sex expert, David makes no attempt to hide her own mistakes - the path is hardly clear and is often occluded with brambles and bounded by steep drops on either side. Reading through these essays has an oddly comforting effect, in that you'll realize that whatever your romantic travails, you're hardly alone.
